1994 continental. air ride. compressor starts and rear starts to lift, but after 3-4 mins. i get a beep and light on dash says ride control and then she squats in the rear?


When I got my 1994 Continental, it had already been converted back to a coil-spring suspension, and the air-ride system was GONE. You will find that is the case with most of the ones that are still on the road. The air-ride system turned out to be an unreliable, trouble-prone, nightmare for most owners....and it was cheaper to scrap it and go back to after-market coils, than what it was to have a Lincoln dealer fix it. Looks like you're destined to join the club....If you decide you want to have it fixed, and make the car driveable, be prepared to PAY for it.

I need instructions for removing the air ride component on a 1992 Lincoln continental so that I can install struts.


The link below is to a video showing how to remove the air springs. Although the car in the video is a 2000, the design has changed very little over the years. You may want to disconnect the air compressor and lines after you replace the air springs with conventional struts.

Air ride suspension leaking in rear of car is their a better solution than air ride...my car is a 1994 continental has 104k runs great thats the only thing wrong is the air ride suspension...


It is possible to go with conventional springs/shocks instead of the air ride system. This has become a common "fix" for faulty air bags due to the expense. The ride will still be great, you will only lose the load leveling ability that the air bags provided.

My 1989 Lincoln Continental air suspension went out is there a replacement spring or shock I can use instead of orignal air ride


Yes, theres a kit that replaces the air bags with shocks and springs and then they give you a small module that connects in the trunk to the air suspension diagnostic connector to turn off the air ride light and keep compressor from running, i,ve found that the price ends up costing the same or more to replace than repair. i have done a ton of these and the problem is the bags leak and sometimes cause the airpump to go bad, theres a web site i use that sells these parts cheap and they work great, start by replacing the bags and then the compressor if needed, the selinoids on the bags are reuseable, now if this car has the front and rear air ride then it is cheaper to convert and i think this car does if its got the v6 engine then it is front and rear air suspension, they sell a kit for 499.00 dollars and comes with struts and springs complete to convert i think just one air strut is 200.00 so it is cheaper to convert .i hope this helps, the web site is get google Airnott industries and then go to the coorect year and make for your car,

I need know what struts i can put in my 93 lincoln continental in place of the air ride


Hello; In regards to the Post, you can do a Strut Converstion and Retrofit, by using the Taurus/Sable struts. This convertion will work, but only for a limited time. The Coil Springs for the REAR, on a Taurus/Sable are much to "soft" for the large Lincoln Continental, it requires stiffer springs, or DO NOT CARRY much of a load in the rear trunk. I used a used pair of Rear struts from a 1994(r) and 1990(f) struts from a Taurus/Sable for the conversion. In all I spent, about $100. I did this conversion, to my 1992 Con in 2004, it lasted without any problems until June 2009, when one of my Rear struts collapsed, due to to much weight in my trunk. You can not carry much of a load, using the Retrofit struts, I gather. The bottom coil Seat of one of my struts has bent downwards, and is not rubbing against the inner well/bead of the tire. Not a nice thing, and very unsafe, and the car will eventually bottom-out due to the week spring arrangement. The car needs springs that are about 50% stronger. FYI. Other then that, it works OK.
The front struts retrofit, are better suited for this conversion, since both vehicles, use the same engine/tran arrangement, and the weight of the vehicle is not inquestion. Only the Rear, but I have not found, a low cost solution to this problem. The only other Alternative, is to buy the Monroe #90001 or Arnott conversion kit, their is also is Strutmasters.com

Save your self the hassle and expence of troubleshooting and replacement parts, install a suspension retrofit kit which changes the rear bags to coil springs and the front to struts. A car this old you might as well start over for less than $500.00......
