Can i replace rear air suspension with shocks on 2000 town car


I have learned from experience. I replaced the air bag suspension ($75) on my 2000 Town Car and then learned that I had a problem with the compressor. Then decided to replace system with coil springs. Went on ebay and got a conversion kit (Air Ditcher) that included the shocks ($123) with free shipping. My mechanic replace the bags with the coils for $40. He said that with the shock replacement it would be $120 because the top of the rear shocks were hard to get to. So the whole job should have cost $163. No more worries!

2000 Expedition rear suspension randomly leaks and pumps up fine. Sometimes the compressor funs a lot. The bags have 150K on them, but don't look too bad, no metal showing.Leaks evenly. Can I replace the...


One of your rear bags has a pinhole in the rubber,therefore the pump is trying to compensate for the needed air.A easy was to diagnose a air leak in the system is to spray down the bags with glass cleaner and it will show you where the leak is.Id suggest that you replace the defective bag rather than convert it to standard suspension.

Air Suspension system Problem 1990 Lincoln Towncar


Unplugging the Connector will cause the Check Suspension light to come on as its listed as a fault as it cant run.

But with it unplugged the compressor shouldnt been able to start. If you want to kill the compressor pull its relay from the engine bay. located above the battery.

But i'd suggest correcting the fault as if those bags do pop your going to end up being grounded. as the rear will drop a fair bit!

The air suspension controls the height of the car, First check if its turned on by opening up the boot/trunk and make sure this switch is turned to on.

If that is on do you have any light on the dash that says "CHECK AIRSUSPENSION" If that is the case its detecting a problem with the system and it wont do any venting/filling.

If the air suspension is pumping etc and operating like it should be you may have a problem with the Height sensor.

If you dont have Air Suspension no more your car has been converted to coils and they would bring the rear higher than the front.

AIR SUSPENSION PROBLEMS FOR 2000 LINCOLN TOWNCAR CARTIER


I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.

94 lincoln towncar rear suspension problem


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.
