Probably the difference of regular shocks and air shocks. Look at the rear shocks, if you see a plastic line running to it, It is air. But you don't have to replace them with air, you can put regular ones on it.

How to repair licoln town car rear suspension

early 90's Lincoln town cars have rear air bag suspension and are very prone to failure. cost of one air bag is well close to 250 dollars.

this is a inexpensive fix for that issue. it is possible to install coil spring in replace of the air bags. you will lose the air ride but the cost will be under 100 dollars for both compared to 500 dollars for air ride replacement bags.

the coils that fit are the same year grand marque ford/mercury cars. so when ordering you order for same year as you car grand marque rear springs,

after market or even dealer cost under 100 dollars. they come will the spring seat as the set.

the repair is raise vehicle and support with jack stands. disconnect the lower shock mount so that it allows the rear axle to travel down. this will need to be done for the instillation of the new replacement springs.

next you will need to disconnect the air lines that go to each air back and pull the clips holding the top of the air bag into the chassis of the car. the bottoms float free so this is all that holds them in the car.

remove the air bags out of vehicle and tie air line up and away out of the travel of the car.

install the new spring seats on the rear axle and upper chassis mount.

install the spring top first. you may need to have an assistant pull down on that side of the rear axle to get enough clearness to get the bottom in the seat. you may also try jacking up the opposite side so the side you are working on travels down easier.

after both sides are in there upper and lower seated position.

jack up on the rear axle to install the lower shock mounts back in there original position. after done lower vehicle and recheck all seats to insure they are properly seated. if so you have completed the repair.

this will take no more that two hours start to finish. if you are familiar with a car it may take even less time.

You can change to regular shocks, without the air lines. Be sure to get adequate informationon weight of the vehicle. ( tire pressure & chart for front & rear on Driver door stille is a good place to look) It will give weight dimensions for front of the vehicle,loaded & unloaded (usually).

Does my 96sls have levelling shocks and if so can i convert them to regular shocks

Ask a caddy dealer parts guy to tell you what type of suspension you have. sells conversion kits but you have a 500 dollar car there and how much are you going to spend on it. it will still be worth 500 dollars after you replace the entire suspension.

How do I replace the shocks on my 1999 jeep

I suggest that you call a few auto repair shops and also a suspension pro shop and compare the labour charge in replacing your shocks. If it`s only the shocks you want to replace, keep in mind that a hoist-lift, impact-gun, and a heating/cutting torch will be required to preform this task. To replace shocks is not to expensive, it`s fairly priced and will save you the fustration of doing this yourself. Shop and compare, you will thank me later..

Rear air suspension

Since your question is general in nature it is difficult to provide a hands on answer. I can tell you that in my experience (3 vehicles with air suspension systems) all air suspension systems eventually have problems. Often it is the air pump that goes out due to condensation which causes the bearings to fail; or it is the automatic leveling componant. Rarely do the air shocks fail- but it can happen. I recently found and entire air shock system on eBay for my truck which was 1/2 the price of what a dealer would charge ($600 V $1300).

If you can't fix the system yourself you are at the mercy of the repair shops. If you can, shop around for the parts if you know what is needed. I found that it was still less expensive to purchase the entire kit on line than just having the system repaired at a shop. And of course, you would have a new system. Think about it.!

Can i ask how to upgrade the rear suspension to

Having a bit of trouble understanding your post but if you need to stiffen up the rear suspension I'd recommend using either coil-over shocks or air shocks back there. (make sure you have enough room for them though.
Springs loose some of their weight carrying ability as they get older. Possible you need to replace them as well. A good upgrade for springs are "cargo coils" which are a variable rate spring.
