Question about 1994 Lincoln Town Car
Air suspension is up in rear of car. how do I get it down
If I'm understanding the question correctly, the problem is the rear is stuck in the "jacked up" position. If you start the car and after a short while the check suspension message comes on, most likely the problem is a rusted corroded vent solenoid in the compressor. When this solenoid sticks closed, the air can't vent to the atmosphere. Keep in mind this problem is a very common one and the root cause is excessive moisture in the system. While replacing the compressor/dryer would get it working normally again, if the moisture problem isn't addressed, the replacement compressor WILL BE short lived as well. RECAP: Short term....replace the compressor/dryer. Long Term....replace the compressor/dryer, then in 30 days replace the dryer only....then again in 6 months. Want to be done it those problems forever? Do a Lincoln Town Car Air Suspension Conversion on your car and be done with those expensive repairs forever!......for less than the cost of a replacement compressor.

Replacing front air springs should do it. air pump is over compensating for front air spring leakage, therefore over filling back air springs.

I have serviced these in the past and it will probably be a combination of things. I just a few weeks ago fixed a 1999 with the same problems. Generally from past repairs, the electric pump has been working overtime to compensate for leaking rear air shocks. The best solution is to replace them both, not a cheap repair, the pump around 275.00 and each shock arount 275.00.
Just with every thing over time things fail, the rear shocks develop leaks over time/weather cracks, they are easy to check, soapy water will identify this as the problem. If you can get under it enough to spray around the bottom of the shocks when they are inflated. These systems are computer controlled and if you have the proper scanner you can check the system out for eletrical problems easily. My past experiences with these suspensions as almost always the shocks and pump.

If you ask your local lowrider shop, they will know the name of this place, I have forgotten. But there is a company that makes all the parts you could need to fix that whole system. From airbags to hoses, to valves and pumps. But be warned. It aint cheap to fix one. And there's usually more than one little thing wrong, plus the leaks at the hose fittings, it can turn into a money pit and a nightmare. That's why those cars are going for so cheap. They sit too low, and bounce around, and there's not an affordable fix. I'm talking hundreds of dollars just to get started. But, it can be fixed. I've had 'em work right for less than a thousand bucks, but don't count on it. Make sure your system is worth saving, if it's too far gone, just forget it. TT

It sounds to me like your compressor got killed. What probably happened is that the airbag got a hole or tiny crack in it so the compressor has to work extra hard because it is like blowing up a balloon with a hole in it. Therefor the airbag killed the compressor. I would recommend going to strutmasters.com and taking a look at our conversion kits. these convert you from the airbag to a powder coated American made steel coil spring that is guaranteed to last the life of the car. I added the link below so you can check it out.
I hope I was of some help

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.
