Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
My 1996 lincoln town car rear air struts are continusly leaking air and the compressor is runing most of the time. my questions are:
1- what will happen if the compressor fails and there is no more air left in the struts?what shall I do then?
2- can I continue driving my car till I replace both struts?
Thanks, Sam Smith
Your car will bottom out if air leaks out.
there are two options replace the airbags with new airbags
or replace with crown vic coil springs.
I recently bought new air bags from ebay brand new for like 230 for set
these were from arnott suspension and were very nice quality lifetime warranty
if you look on ebay you will see the conversion kit for coil springs also

Look online and get the bag that is leaking in order to save money on the compressor and labor. The airbag is only $84 new aftermarket. Keep in mind the other will go soon so it is good to change both. The only other solution is to convert it to coil and shock for $287 (kit). It is a simple install that will last for three times longer than the airbag system. Good luck
