Question about 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII
1996 Mark VIII: Check Air Ride System Keeps Coming On .
Has anyone converted over to Coils instead of replacing the air ride system? If So, Have You Had Any Problems After That
Hi, yes, I have replaced the air-suspension on a personal towncar sedan I owned with coils and I can say the ride was rough, you can use softer tires and a lower psi in tire to make the ride a little bit smoother, noisy because the rear axle was not designed for a coil to rest on it, so the coils "rub" on the axle when traveling over bumps, and the shocks should be replaced with new heavy-duty but soft type. If it's just the driver and a few passengers, this conversion will work, if you don't mind a rougher ride. BUT if your towing anything or have the trunk and passenger area loaded, the rear will sink, but most likely the tires will not touch the wheel well unless your towing a boat or camper or hit a big hole on the road.
