Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car
I was investigating putting struts from a 1992 Ford Taurus on to a 1992 Lincoln Continental (to rid the car of air suspension issues). It doesn't seem as complicated as some people have implied in previous posts. Only one poster mentions casually that he put struts from a Sable on his Continental. According to the 1992 Ford Service Manual, to remove the struts from the Continental, you basically loosen the 3 bolts on top of each strut, remove the brake caliper and disc, disconnect the tie rods and a couple of other bolts, use a fork seperator on one component. The installation of the Taurus struts is seamless, as they fit with no modification. AM I WRONG ABOUT THIS?!?! If you don't consider air-suspension problem and Ford 3.8 L head gasket issues on a 1992 Continental, (i.e., if you correct those two issues) you have a car with decent reliability (comparable to most other American cars). I have a lincoln towncar and I need to put coil springs under them because the air bags are out. do I need to put shocks under them as well as springs? and how simple is this operation for me to do? I have worked on cars before. EGG
There is a company that makes a converson kit for this problem on Lincoln's with rear air suspension issues. It is s direct fit and is easy to install. http://www.strutmasters.com/
