    That price doesn't include installation...



    "SUSPENSION CAN BE VERY EXPENSIVE TO REPLACE"



    "Replace" to me includes installation.

I have a 01 Lincoln Continental just about every time I put weight from bk seat to the trunk it dumps the air and wont pump up not all the time but enough to be very annoying


There is a diagnostic port that some of the better scanners can use to read the air suspension. It is the cheapest way because you only replace the bad component. The air suspension is designed to let the air out when you either open a door and/or open the trunk. It is attempting to lower the car to make the loading of the trunk and passengers easier. The height levelers are then suppose to recover the ride height and straighten the body to ride level..

1997lincolnviiiair ride system in front end is loosing air


This is a common problem for all Lincolns. Since the front rises but can't hold the air, it's a good sign that you don't have any compressor problems. You probably hear the compressor constantly clicking on to try to keep the front end inflated.
The most common cause is a leak in the air spring. It is often referred to an "air bag" which is basically a cartridge that fills and releases air based on the load. The most common repair is to replace the air spring (it's advisable to replace 2 at a time). There is another solution to replace the air spring(s) with a conventional aftermarket shock type spring setup. It's a matter of personal preference. You would still get a nice ride from a conventional shock absorber setup. Although more expensive, I've always preferred to go with the air spring replacement to keep the classic "Lincoln" ride intact.

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.

Can i put coil springs from a 1995 taurus onto a 1995 continental


No. they are different platforms and could result in a serious accident. they make conversion kits to eliminate the air ride suspension and are designed specifically for this particular car.

Air-spring suspension 1995 Mark Vlll Lincoln Continental.When car is turned off fornt air-springs stay inflated but sometimes rear air-springs slowly lose air but inflate after ignition switch is turned to...


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......

Trying to replace airshocks on 1999 lincoln towncar


Air shocks or air bag suspension? Shocks can be replaced with a "coil-over" shock like those made by monroe. To replace spring/air bag system, you would need to experiment with spring combination's to find what works...likely more expensive than changing what's wrong with original stuff.

How to change to air spring in a 1999 Lincoln continental? The air spring is leaking and I do not want to convert


Hello, you must turn the system off,in the trunk.Then you must support the car with jacks.With the vehicle raised the bolts on the bottom of the airbag must be removed.Put another jack under the side of the suspension you are removing.Then undo the shock and it should come out.Then dis connect the air line and remove the airbag.
