94 lincoln towncar rear suspension problem

I just purchased this car and the back is so low. i've been reading up on the problem but cant get really a straight answer. Can you put shocks on the car to lift it or does the whole system need replacement? I'm trying to find the cheapest way to fix the problem

    my 97 towncar rear suspension will not raise. the compressor is running. how can i tell if the control module behind the glove box is bad.

    coil spring conversions are a lot cheaper. the coils will only cost you about $100 if you shop around, and do the work yourself. i also suggest replacing shocks while you are in there.

Replacing the air bags is only cheaper if that is the only problem with the vehicle (which it hardly ever is). The air bags or other parts will act like a house of cards and over work your compressor and other components within the air ride system. Converting over to coil springs is definately the way to go.. eventhough I hardly ever recommend finding safety and suspension parts at a junk yard. Springs are easy to cut corners and costs on and a cheap spring can cause catastophic results. http://www.strutmasters.com offers affordable conversion kits and provides a lifetime warranty on all the kits they sell. The springs are only made of powder coated, American made steel coils that are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle (unlike those airbags and compressor) http://www.strutmasters.com/lincoln-town-car-suspension-s/37.htm there is a direct link if it helps anybody having these problems. There are less expensive versions out there, but you get what you pay for.

The air bags went bad. well there are 2 ways. unfortunatly they are both gonna cost. you can have someone put a conversion kit on the rear that changes it to springs instead of air , looking at about 400-600 dollars. or you could replace the air bags, this will cost a little cheaper

Trying to find a wiring diagram for air compressor. Rear air ride is out compressor not running at all checked fuses just replaced relay .


I know that you are trying to fix that air ride, but i put these replacement springs on my 93 towncar. Fixed the compressor problem (eliminated it) and cost a whole lot less. The install is kinda hard if you've never dropped a rear end before. Need a good tool set, a couple jacks, and jack stands to get it done. Check it out. Even having a mechanic install them would be cheaper than replacing a compressor.

Sounds like shocks/struts. Usually if they start sagging it's because of a problem in the suspension, like shocks or struts.

Air suspension


Sounds like you have a hole or cracks in your airbag. This causes the compressor to work double time eventually killing the compressor as well. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at the town car conversion kits. They convert you from air to powder coated, American made steel coil springs that are guaranteed to last the life of the car. I posted the link below so you can take a look.
