The front does have air ride, and I do not believe that converting the rear should hinder the ride of your car. I would recommend replacing the front with a coil over system also. you can get the conversion through strutmasters.com or like wise.

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.

Can not get the new air ride compressor to come on


Make sure the trunk switch is turned on. Your doorjam and trunk switches are wired into the Air-ride. They must sense the openings are closed before the lift compressor will work.

There are level controls for height. If the car was put on a lift without the switch being turned off, the positioner may be stretched beyond working.

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.

Is there a heavy duty coil over shock I can use in place of the original rear shocks in my 2002 navigator?


If you mean as a substitute for the Air ride there are conversion kits. Just look in your Browser and search for terms like "Lincoln Air ride conversions", "Rear spring kits for Navigators", and so on.

There are also shocks with Booster springs which can increase load capacity.

In addition, several companies do repair the Rubber bags and you can get what you need from Salvage yards to put your ride back to original shape.

On some of the cars with Air ride, I believe it was $300 minimum for a conversion, for just the coiled shocks, I believe $120 a pair. Anything for a Lincoln Logo you will pay more and often. I have not used any of these kits, so I can not say how good they are or what the Install price is. The Web is the best place to price out these parts.

Can i put coil springs from a 1995 taurus onto a 1995 continental


No. they are different platforms and could result in a serious accident. they make conversion kits to eliminate the air ride suspension and are designed specifically for this particular 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

Air-spring suspension 1995 Mark Vlll Lincoln Continental.When car is turned off fornt air-springs stay inflated but sometimes rear air-springs slowly lose air but inflate after ignition switch is turned to...


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......

I would like to bypass the air compressor and manual inflate the air ride so that it stays up.how do i do that Dennis


you would have to unplug compressor and remove airline and tie in a valve like one off of airshocks.
it is usually the air springs that rot and start leaking. so you will probably still leak down. you can replace with coil springs and do away with air ride your continental has airride front and rear?
