View Full Version : Air ride ......Explorer

Bought a 97 Exploder at a auction.
It has a system message center and it keeps saying "Check air ride".
What and where is the "air ride"?
Theres no manual n the stupid thing so I cant find out.
It looks to be saggy in the backend.

yeah just the rear should be air ride its for the self leveling ride for when its loaded or towing a trailer

front and rear have air shocks and a compressor system they are a common problem on those things. there is also height sensors on each corner you can check for cracks or brocken pars but it is usually the line or shock its self like heavy said

So its just air shocks , not bags?

you can shut the air ride off , there is a switch in the back compartment drivers side in the trunk where the jack is , flip the switch and it shuts down the system then u will get the message air ride is off every time you turn the vehicle on though :dontknow:

If it helps I think they can be retro fitted with non electric air ride shocks, check with monroe shocks. part number 40007 says it is to replace originals non electric adjustable unit. good luck!
