My 2005 GrandMarquis sits too low in the front even after changing all springs and shocks.

Does your car have air suspension or coil springs. If you change the air springs and it still is low, it may be the air compressor or limit switches. But the front springs are coil and not air, so I see no reason it should ride low if you replaced with the correct parts. Now if you replaced the front shocks and not the coil springs, then the coil springs may need to be replaced.

Hello, Here is what you might try. First, go to and look at their tire comparison features on the Website. You will see "tools" that show what size tires will fit on your rims and what extra size rims will fit under your wheelwells. There is also a speed calculator for using the larger size tires over stock and it will show speedometer error if you do not recalibrate the speedo.

Next would be using spacers on the bottom of the springs or having longer springs refitted to your car. Finally air shocks front and back will give you some lift. The Grand Marquis can have rear air suspension, but to use it like you want, you will need to reconfigure the pump and change limit switches.

If you do all of this, you may reach your 4" lift. Your ride quality once you start changing springs and limiting travel in the suspension will probably deteriorate. As your car is a body on frame design, you may be able to put spacers of 1/2" to 1" under the body to frame mounts. You would need to make up the distance for the steering shaft, A/C lines and possibly hoses throughout.

In general, an inch from the tires, two inches from the springs or air shocks, and the balance from body on frame spacing.

I changed from the low 60 Series tires to a 65 Series tire on my own Grand Marquis. You can get a 70 Series to fit. I looked at Police car tires and they used 60 Series. But going back to 1994 Models, the 70 Series tire was available from the factory.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you in deciding what you to do.

I recently replaced my tires and shocks on my 2000 Mercury, Grand Marquis. When driving down the road the car tends to not hold the road very good when hitting a bump in the road. The car only has 71000...

Did you fit the correct shocks? Did you fit them the correct way up? Did you prime them before fitting?

Your fault points to a definite shocks problem first and it's extremely unlikely to be weak springs. The next most likely candidate are one or more suspension bushings.
