Get to Know the 1992-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis
The 1992-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis is one of the most widely recognizable vehicles in the history of the automobile. While the Grand Marquis is almost identical to the Lincoln Town Car and Ford Crown Vic, it is usually viewed as an upgrade to the Ford Taurus by Taurus owners due to better visibility, a digital dash, and a much more comfortable ride with a rear air suspension system.
What Suspension Components Does the 1992-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis Have?
The 1992-2011 Mercury Grand Marquis has 2 coil springs and two gas shocks in the front, and 2 air springs and gas shocks in the rear of the vehicle. The coil springs and air springs control the vehicle’s height while the 4 shocks control the vehicle’s ride comfort and tire-to-ground contact. The rubber air springs are designed to automatically adjust to different weights being placed into or onto the rear of the vehicle, while the coil springs are designed to hold a specific height for a single, specific weight. The amount of air an air spring has is dependent upon 2 level-sensors on the axle, which, when altered by extra or less weight, sends a signal to the suspension control module. From there, the module sends a signal to the air compressor, which in turn pushes air through air lines into the top of the air springs via a solenoid until the vehicle is back at the desired ride height. This costly air suspension system can be more easily replaced by many of our Strutmasters conversion kits.
Mercury Grand Marquis 1992-2011 Air Bag to Coil Spring Conversion
The failure of this vehicle’s air suspension system is RARELY singular in nature, and it doesn’t take long for one failed component to ruin the entire system. Failed compressors are usually a sign that the air springs have a hole somewhere in them, and replacing only one component will only ensure a slightly less expedient degradation of your ride quality. Our conversion kits will replace those air springs with variable-rate steel Eibach coil springs that are guaranteed to keep the rear of your Mercury Grand Marquis riding level, and replace the shocks with ours to recreate that smooth ride.
Why is the coil spring suspension better than air suspension for my Mercury Grand Marquis?
There are many factors as to why you should specifically purchase a new Strutmasters conversion kit to replace your worn-out air suspension:
- Buy the best, buy the original. We invented the conversion kit!
- While the original air springs may have lasted a long time, the replacements won’t be the same as the originals; don’t expect the same quality!
- Our conversion kits use cold-wound steel Eibach springs and are backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty! Try asking the dealer if your failed air system is covered by a warranty!
- Your entire air system will most likely need to be replaced, leaving you with a bill for over $2,000 in parts for OE replacements!
- Get rid of having to deal with the same failing parts every few years, and fix your suspension with our simple-to-install springs and new replacement shocks starting at only $219!
- Used to hauling a wheelchair and carrier with your Grand Marquis while maintaining a level ride? You still can! Check out our load-leveling conversion kit which includes an Air Lift 1000 kit to place inside of our coils!
- Our struts and shocks have the best dampening of any kit on the market.
