The are ride height adjusters the look like arms. they are mounted on the bottom of the struts and lower control arms that control the height The can be adjust but for the most part if the were working fine before then they need to be replaced. Make sure that there are no leaks in the system.

Already converted from rear air bags suspension to non air.. but now my steering isn't right. what can that be?


Probably something to do with ride height settings in computer trying to compensate for some reason, do you still have front air bag suspension? You could try removing fuse for suspension.

I have a 96 Lincoln continental and there is one major issue with the car. The air suspension stopped working but not only that the driver door ajar is on also and,I have read on other forums that if the...


The door problem could be a faulty switch/sensor inside the door latch. If the suspension warning light is on there is a problem with that system too.
The system should maintain standard height even with the door open in most cases. It may not increase height if you load the car and the door is not closed.

Can not get the new air ride compressor to come on


Make sure the trunk switch is turned on. Your doorjam and trunk switches are wired into the Air-ride. They must sense the openings are closed before the lift compressor will work.

There are level controls for height. If the car was put on a lift without the switch being turned off, the positioner may be stretched beyond working.

I just purchased a 1997 lincoln continental and the rear suspension deflates at night but when it is started in the morning,it reflates. Is this normal?


it should deflates only at trim height and shld stay at that level considering that there is no leak on the rear air suspension. Most probably leaking rear air suspension is the problem. The system works up to 45 minutes only after ignition off and will maintain the trim height

My 1995 continental has severe ride problems bounces on every bump in the road front end sits low and rear seems normal


Sounds like the front "air ride suspension" is out.
That works off rubber bags built into the springs. If one or both has developed a leak/hile, it lets the front end (or rear or both) drop to ride on the bottom of the suspension.
Get the wallet out. It's expensive.
Sorry :-(

I have a 1999 lincoln continental and when i turn the car on the rear air suspension goes down and does not lift up, and my muffler is nearly dragging how can i fix this problem


You should call around to Autozone and Oreillys and ask if they have a scanner for the air ride. Then if no luck its either a dealer or a frame and body shop.

The system can be fixed with Salvage parts. Some parts sell as reconditioned like the bags. But having someone hook up the right scanner will save you time and money. There are some adjustments that need to be made for the small parts so everything works together properly.

I have a 95 Lincoln Continental, the back end was way too high so I released the air in the bags. Now the only problem is that the pump can't lift up the car. Is there any ways to get air into the system...


located on the air suspension pump, there is a air fitting on top which you can inflate with an air hose, start the car and when the pump comes on, add air......it should stop pumping when the ride height sensor gets to the adjusted height....hope this helps....GL
