Rear coil springs are in need of replacement. They are the only components that give the vehicle its stance / leveling. Normal factory shocks simply dampen the ride and absorb road bumps.

2004 Lesabre. Air ride shocks recently replaced. Recently hit in the right rear. Only $1K in damage (bumper cover, tail light). Got them to toss in a 4 wheel alignment. Car is at the shop now.

If it's a strut type shock, they make a cam bolt kit for it. If it's a regular shock type, they make shims that needs to be installed between backing plates and hub

I was wondering is i can take my rear air suspension out of my 98 ford expedition and replace it with just springs?

Didn't I answer this a while back? Yes you can. I took the air shocks out of my Grand Marquis when they gave out and I didn't want to give Ford the $2300 they wanted to replace them, so I got a pair of reg shocks, they fit perfect, leveled right up and rode nice. No problem. I thought they were going to sag, but they didn't. Check it out.

My rear air sespension has gone bad on my 1998 navigator and I can not afford a new air sespension since they quoted me over $1900 to fix. Can I just put regular shocks on the rear to fix the horrible sag?

Yes you can, But even better yet would be a set of air shocks on there. I had a 92 Grand Marquis that blew out the rear suspension, and I put reg shocks on there, worked great, looked normal, No problem. They wanted $2,000 to fix mine. I said later. But the air shocks, if you have a full load or a sagging problem, you can just get out the compressor and blow them up. Hope this helps.

My 92 seville is sagging in the back any ideas on

Yes doe's your car, have the air ride suspension if so you need to replace the air pump or the air ride shocks on the rear or look for a valve under the rear bumper or in the trunk to inflate the shocks.. if nowhere to be found then take your car, in to a shop.
Good Luck!

You can get a decent pair of gas charged shocks or monroe load leveler shocks (if they are available for your car) However, it's likely that the rear springs have sagged. You can easily replace them with either oem or a stronger variable rate spring.
