Question about 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII

1 Answer

The car is suppose to lower.

1998 mark 8 was lowering overnight and while driving. We took it to Ford, they replaced the compresser, it still lowered overnight. I called back and the service writer said that the car will lower overnight to make entry easier. Do all 98 mark 8's do this?

What is the Piston compression supposed to be for a 1998 Toyota Rav4?


You need to test all cylinders to get an idea what the range is. A compression test only shows if one or more is lower than the highest and that would be acceptable to a point of say 20 percent or more.

Ball joints???


You're not supposed to replace the uppers on a 98 ranger. They're not meant to be pressed out because its built in with the control arm as a single unit. Just buy new upper control arms and save yourself the trouble. Ford also claims you have to replace the control arm for the lowers as well, but that's BS. They can be replaced fairly easily with the proper tools.
