1994 lincoln continental executive rear end goes down when the car is parked few hours.


When the key is off, the air suspension shouldn't lose any air, so you could have a valve leak in the system. I'm not familiar with all the components of the system, but did you check the valve that allows the system to bleed off pressure for leaks when the system is turned off?

Air ride suspension leaking in rear of car is their a better solution than air ride...my car is a 1994 continental has 104k runs great thats the only thing wrong is the air ride suspension...


It is possible to go with conventional springs/shocks instead of the air ride system. This has become a common "fix" for faulty air bags due to the expense. The ride will still be great, you will only lose the load leveling ability that the air bags provided.

My 1989 Lincoln Continental air suspension went out is there a replacement spring or shock I can use instead of orignal air ride


Yes, theres a kit that replaces the air bags with shocks and springs and then they give you a small module that connects in the trunk to the air suspension diagnostic connector to turn off the air ride light and keep compressor from running, i,ve found that the price ends up costing the same or more to replace than repair. i have done a ton of these and the problem is the bags leak and sometimes cause the airpump to go bad, theres a web site i use that sells these parts cheap and they work great, start by replacing the bags and then the compressor if needed, the selinoids on the bags are reuseable, now if this car has the front and rear air ride then it is cheaper to convert and i think this car does if its got the v6 engine then it is front and rear air suspension, they sell a kit for 499.00 dollars and comes with struts and springs complete to convert i think just one air strut is 200.00 so it is cheaper to convert .i hope this helps, the web site is get google Airnott industries and then go to the coorect year and make for your car,

The air bags when out......is it better to buy them new or just add the suspension?


Your best, with a Continental or Lincoln Navagator, to just
replace the air suspension with conventional shocks/struts,
after your vehicle is about 8 years old and you have put
time and money into previous air system problems

Strutmaster you hear a lot of and there has to be others

Back end has dropped over the winter


It likely has a slow leak in the suspension bags. Start the engine and let it idle. The compressor should come on and the car should level. If it does it again you might have to replace the rear struts. Expensive. about 1000. Or you can convert it to springs.

Save your self the hassle and expence of troubleshooting and replacement parts, install a suspension retrofit kit which changes the rear bags to coil springs and the front to struts. A car this old you might as well start over for less than $500.00......
