I wanted to answer my own question for those of you considering switching to coils. I highly recommend it. I just had this converted and I am extremely happy with the results. I was afraid the ride would be much rougher with the coils, but there is little or no noticable difference. The only adjustment I have had to make is it sits about an half to an inch higher that when the air springs where fully inflated. But I like the look. The stance is more similar to the new 2008/09 navigators.
It cost me $375 to switch them out and $65 to have it realligned to be safe.
Now, I dont have a low rider and I don't have to wait a minute before I can drive away. Also, I can go up north to cold country without worry about the suspension bottoming out and tearing up my tires on my 22" rims.
If you want to save yourself frustration there really is little or no downside to switching to coils. I am a Ford guy so I hope Lincoln fixes the design on this flawed system on their future navigators.

ok i have already changed my suspension compressor that 2 different mechanics told me that it was no good....after reading Mattmo post...i had my husband go outside under the truck pull the relay out and connect the wire and it went on so now i'm guessing its the relay, but of course he didn't want to leave it connected to long just in case it got hot but it didn't make the truck go up from the front...now does the work on both front and back

My check suspension light wil come on while i drive down the road. the suspension is usually inflated when i stop and check after noticing the check light. I reset the suspension switch under the glovebox and the compressor comes on. this usually lasts for about 100-200 miles. before i have to reset the switch again. any ideas?

#155 of 365 Seriously considering converting.

I just came from the dealership a few minutes agon and seriously considering switching my air rides.
I was having similar issue with my 03 Gator on 24 inch rims. Back in August of 08 I took it to the dealership (Oursiman of Alexandria, in Northern Virginia) to be looked at. They diagnosed and so far have changed the following:
Air Compressor Right Front Side
Right Front Side Sensor
Replaced all three Adjusted Aims
Left Ride Height Sensor
Rear Height Sensor
Total cost of the above $2513.60 (very painful)
The system worked for roughly eight months and failed again. I took it today and they tell me there is a $500 relay that needs to be changed before they can continue testing to see what is wrong. Yeah, that is what I said.
Anyways, I called Suncore but they tell me they canít give me the name of anyone in the Northern Virginia area that can do the change for me until I buy the conversion kits because it is against their company policy. I would give up the vehicle except it is highly customized and I have put a lot into it already. I will appreciate it if anyone in the DC, VA and MD area is on here who knows of a shop that can give me a quote as to how much it will be for the conversion.
