    to be honest i have never worked on one as iam in spain so if no coil springs it must use leaf springs or torsion bar ,it will have springs of some sort thats for sure ,just changing the shock absorber will not lift the vehicle thats for sure ,have another look because if its torsion bars then they can easly be adjusted

Right front shock gone car sitting down against 20" tires how can I tow to shop? tried a flat bed but front bumper touching bed and tires really scrubbing i trying to drive

A failed shock will not cause this (except maybe some off road air shocks). A collapsed suspension like that is due to a broken spring or separated suspension joint. Sorry, you can't drive it, towing is needed.

Lincoln mark viii, front end lowers slightly when I shut off the car. Also, when the car sits overnight the front end lowers considerably.

You have a leaky airbag in the front end - a common problem for those vehicles but not a cheap fix either. There are aftermarket solutions to replace the airbag suspension but they are involved to install, making this an expensive fix either way. Check with local wrecking yards to see if they may have your specific model there for parts - but bear in mind their airbags may leak too. You may be able to find replacement airbags online - don't replace just one, rather both front bags to eliminate the need for repeat repairs soon after the initial.I would evaluate the cost of repair versus the value of the vehicle, unless you are restoring this car or planning on giving it to your child.
Good luck!!

Hey the rear of my car is siting low,can i add air?

the airbag suspension system is busted, air is to be added by the compressor everytime you start the car or a person sits in it. the compressor, check valves, seals, and all the other parts of this system can and do go bad, one right after the other. the only real fix is to gut that system and replace with standard shocks and springs. check out the parts cost on and think about the labor, then think about the price of a replacement vehilce a few years newer. never have another air suspension system car, even if it is a BMW that someone gives you.

The check suspension light came on. I have noticed that the vehicle is sitting uneven after the airbags deflate once the vehicle is turned off. Lately the vehicle also seems to not have an airbag inflating...

Definitely sounds like there is a leak in your air suspension somewhere. I'd have a local shop check it out. There is a switch for the air suspension either underneath the glovebox right hand side of firewall. or in the back of the vehicle behind the left panel. it is labeled suspension

Check engine light , check suspension

My towncar is doing the same. It actually started about 6 months ago with the fuel light, which turned out to be no problem, just some air in the line. My air bags did go out last week, so it looks like I have a low rider right now:) I'm in the process of converting from air bags to springs. I had the back airbags replaced but then the dang compressor went out and I don't have the money to replace that. The check air suspension light will stay on right before you have to replace the airbags. Turn your car off then on and if it takes a little while for the light to come back on you have a few weeks to go before it goes out completely. Oh and it is a real easy fix. Its gonna cost about 200 bucks for each airbag, but if you convert it to spring it will cost about 150 in parts.

The rear airbag suspension needs to be replaced.

If you are refering to your rear shocks you may just need the compressor pump, located under the hood on the left side. That pump may just be bad, especially if the car sit extremely low.
