Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car
Just had the back tires changed. had the front tires changed before that along with the top & bottom ball joints and I had the air suspension turned off while they worked on the ball joints..just don't know why this all of a sudden happened. the place that changed the back tires (and front) actually picks the whole car up at one time.

Check the height adjustment valves for the rear as they may have been damaged when the suspension was dropped down by lifting the body

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.

There is a way to permanately fix the solution to air ride suspension- get rid of them. Go online and there are several companies selling parts to replace everything you need- or do the smart thing and take them out and replace them with lifetime shocks. You can convert your car for a fraction of the price and never have to deal with them again.
I am sooo glad I did it on my car. It rides just as smooth too. Also, you don't have to worry about eroding boots, failing compressors/pumps, etc.
Suncore Industries is who I used and the things have been champ for 3 years running. And for only $249.00. No I don't work there!

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.

the compressor is in the left front fender behind bumper cover, there is a retrofit kit to go to hard coils, only like 130 bucks..... best bet some one prob charge 50 bucks to install and prob solved easily
