long-icon-questionWhy Choose Strutmasters?

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental?

The air suspension system on the 84-87 Lincoln Continental is outdated and faulty. It consists of assorted parts that must always function in sync. Strutmasters' air to non-air suspension conversion kit gets rid of this dependency for good. Manufactured in the USA using quality parts, the kit includes two new rear shocks with bushings, four Eibach coil springs, and all necessary mounts and hardware. The kit saves our customers time and frustration as it is installed in only one hour per wheel. Top-notch customer service, provided by ASE certified technicians, is available to support customers from the beginning of the project to its completion. Not to mention, the price is considerably lower than the replacement alternatives. Review the following three prices to see just how much the Strutmasters conversion kit saves: that of direct replacement at the Lincoln dealership, that of installing aftermarket air parts individually, and that of installing a Strutmasters coil spring suspension conversion kit.

long-icon-xIs Your Suspension Failing?

How do I know if my 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Air Suspension is failing?

The Lincoln Continental has served you well for years, but if it's unable to reach and maintain its proper ride height then the air suspension system may be leaking. Early diagnosis of a bad suspension system is the key to avoiding total failure. Look for the following signs that indicate the suspension system has failed, before it's too late. The most noticeable is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Continental. Typically, either the front or rear end will sag while the opposite end remains inflated. Sometimes this gives the illusion that the Continental is “squatting” down in the rear. There may be a shifting lean from one side to the other. In the next stage of suspension failure, the air compressor will wear out. If it has stopped working already or is running too often, then the vehicle is in jeopardy. When suspension failure is advanced, a suspension warning light will illuminate on the dashboard. At this point, an expensive direct replacement or repair is required to fix the Continental.

long-icon-gearVehicle Components

What kind of suspension does my 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental have?

The 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental is built with the following suspension components:

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Air Springs (x4) - commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag that is fitted on top of the strut that uses pressurized air as a cushion instead of a metal coil spring to hold a vehicle off of the ground and off of its wheels. These are the number one cause of all air suspension leaks. All air springs all go bad at about the same rate. If one is leaking, the others will not be far behind. For a proper repair, all of them need to be replaced at the same time.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Shock Absorbers (x4) - has metal tubing filled with gas-charged hydraulic fluid that is connected to the wheel of a vehicle in order to reduce the effects of vertical travel on a rough surface which controls the bounciness, and therefore comfort, of a vehicle. Some models dampening may be controlled by the suspension control module and can be very costly to replace.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Height Sensors (x4) - a linkage located near each wheel of a vehicle with any electronic suspension that, either mechanically or electronically, constantly measures the height of the vehicle, and reports this information back to the control module so that the computer can identify if changes in height need to be adjusted accordingly. The ride height sensor is a moving part, and like all moving parts, they will eventually wear out.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor to the air which carry pressurized air to the air bags in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Solenoids (x4) - usually L-shaped, these plastic components connect the electrical connection and lines of suspension components to the suspension control module on vehicles with active suspension. The solenoid regulates the air pressure for each air spring. Solenoids start to leak as they wear out causing the vehicle to sag or to lean. This will cause the ride height sensor to send a signal to activate the compressor in an attempt to inflate the air suspension and level out the vehicle. This excessive work load will eventually lead to total failure of the compressor.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Compressor Assembly- creates/sends pressurized to active suspension components. When the air suspension starts leaking, the compressor/pump starts working harder to try to keep the system inflated. By the time air suspension leaks down completely, sitting the vehicle on its tires, the compressor will either have failed or be well on its way to full failure. Buying replacement struts and taking the time to install them only to find out the compressor still needs to be replaced can be very frustrating, time-consuming, and expensive.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

1984-1987 Lincoln Continental O-rings- Although they are the least expensive parts of the air suspension, they are responsible for maintaining the seal where all of the air lines connect. Be sure to replace the O-rings when repairing any air suspension system.
