Probably the difference of regular shocks and air shocks. Look at the rear shocks, if you see a plastic line running to it, It is air. But you don't have to replace them with air, you can put regular ones on it.
Yes, you can just put regular shocks on the back,just make sure you get shocks that have the same length as your original ones and that are from a explorer without air suspension.That way you wont have the back end of the car riding too low or bottoming out.
Not an expert here, but my buddy had the same problem till i looked underneath and saw the leaf spring end bracket rusted off, and holding onto the frame by a tiny screw. this is common on fords. pls check.
YOU HAVE TO TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM IF YOU HAVE AUTOMATIC LEVELING AIR SPRINGS. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAFELY RAISE SUPPORT VECHICLE ON JACK STANDS REMOVE THE OLD SHOCKS. PRIME NEW SHOCKS PUMP THEM UP COMPRESS PUT ON VECHICLE.DONT FORGOT TO TURN OFF AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM FIRST IF YOU DONT THE AIR COIL SPRINGS WILL OVER EXTEND PUMP MORE AIR IN SPRINGS CAUSE DAMAGE TO AIR SPRINGS.
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 Grandma marquis did the same thing, I thought that was normal, it slowly goes down when you shut it off and slowly goes up when you start it, It didn't hit the ground or anything, but then it finally did die altogether, years later, and then it hit the ground, so I got regular shocks back there and it rode fine, stayed level, it is now resting in the junkyard in a shallow unmarked grave. It was a nice car.
yes unless u want to change your air suspension to normal. i mean regular shock absorbers. usually the air lines break. or the air bags on the shocks leak air. if one is leaking the other one will never operate normally.
have you reset the computer by disconect neg battery cable for about 2min reconnect start engine drive it for about three blocks if that does not work when they put you tires on they might of broke the air level senser
