1995 Ford Explorer Air Ride System Sign In

1995 Ford Explorer Limited

How hard is it to replace the rear air ride shocks with conventional shocks on my explorer, when I do replace them can I just cap off the air lins hat go to them so the pump will not come on and will the air ride system light come on after I replace the air shocks with conventional shocks
Thank you so much for your help in advance
Jody

Your truck doesn't have air shocks. If it is equipped with air suspension, it has what's called "air springs" which are air bags that take the place of the springs.
They sell kits to replace the bags with springs. On some models you can disable the light and some not. If it can be done, the enclosed instructions will tell you how.

I have to stand corrected. The Explorer does use shocks.
Here is an example of a conversion kit.
