The 2002 Lincoln Navigator uses a hub assembly and composite rotor in the front brake system and a “Drum-In-Hat” style rear rotor that features a friction surface machined into the inside of the rotor hat area for a set of parking brake shoes to grip against. Replacing the rotors on this SUV is similar to other Ford trucks and SUVs of the same year. Special concern must be taken with the air bag suspension system to prevent damage to the air bags.
Tools Used: Tools, Wheel chocks, Floor jack, Jack stands, Lug wrench, Socket set, Screwdriver set, Sandpaper
Turn the air ride system off by flipping the on/off switch located in the rear cargo area inside the right side storage compartment. Raise the front of the Navigator using a floor jack. Slide jack stands under the frame. Place wheel chocks to block the rear wheel on the opposite side of the front wheel you are working on. Remove the wheel.
