my 2004 lincoln nav front right suspension looks lower than the rest. I turned the on/off switch for suspension to reset it but no luck, anyone know what could be the problem?

    First - do a ride height check by checking from a known fixed point on both sides to the ground - probably the top of the wheel well. Measure side to side. A difference of a third of an inch (1/2") or less would be acceptable.

    To actually adjust the ride height requires a diagnostic tool to access the 4 wheel air suspension module (4WAS) and adjust the wheels individually.

    As far as problems: you could have a solenoid on one wheel (the higher one) that is not venting properly. So, when your vehicle is trying to adjust, one wheel vents and lowers and the other one will not move.

    These systems need diagnostic equipment to adjust and diagnose appropriately. Good luck!

    Its probably your air suspension mine did the same thing. My air suspension went out and I bought a conversion kit for my Navigator from Strutmasters.com and I have to say It works great. I paid less than a grand to fix it with a lifetime warranty and now i dont gotta worry about it again.
