Additional Information

What kind of suspension does my 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII have?

The 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is built with the following suspension components:

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Struts (x2)- a type of shock absorber; 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.; the air spring assembled on top of the strut is commonly referred to as an air strut.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Shock Absorbers (x2) - 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicle’s correct ride height.

1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.

How Do I Know If My Air Suspension Is Failing?

The most common symptom of a leaking or failed air suspension is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the vehicle. The vehicle could have a sagging rear end or front end, it could lean to the left side or right side, or the entire vehicle could be squatting down lower than normal. Other symptoms could include a suspension warning message or light in the instrument cluster, or the air compressor no longer working or running way too often (which would be very noisy and noticeable). The last major tip is your vehicle is no longer able to reach or maintain the proper ride height.

Why choose the Conversion Kit over replacing the air suspension system on your 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII?

We have already seen the assortment of parts that construct the air suspension system. Our conversion kit gets rid of having to depend on all of those parts functioning correctly and in sync. This conversion kit consists (2) completely pre-assembled coil-over strut assemblies for the front, (2) Eibach coil springs and (2) shocks for the rear. The conversion not only saves you time and frustration, it saves you lots of money. Now let’s take a look at the cost difference between choosing an air vs. a non-air suspension system. Here, we are going to compare three prices: the price for repairing your air suspension system at the dealer, the price for installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your vehicle, and the price of getting rid of the faulty air ride heartache and installing a brand new coil spring suspension conversion kit:

I was very happy with the whole process and have told two people about your services. I want to buy front shocks before winter.

Name: | Location: Crystal River, FL United States

I ordered a set of the coil springs and shocks to replace the back air gab system back there. It took me about 2 hrs I had all together, and I put it all back in there. Everything went in smooth, it worked perfectly. I pull a 6000lb boat with my truck. It works perfect, everything is nice and level, nice ride, everything you guys did was excellent and I really appreciate it. Thank you

took wheels off, need big pry bar, removed clips from the top, used pry bar to push down, one side was not easy at all other side dropped right out, went underneath pryed bottm bags up, did not remove shocks or anything, put top of spring in and with pry bar and big rubber mallot popped in bottom, other side was alittle more agressive, same thing my son was holding spring i would pry and when close enough would us mallot to beat it in rest of the way, not my first time doing this, took about an hour, already was up on jackstands and wheels off

Yeah I’m satisfied with the springs I ordered, they arrived a day earlier than expected and the installation went good. I did not have to use the instructions. I have the 1999 Expedition and did the air to coil conversion on the rear and it was easy. Thanks

Name: | Location: Wadsworth, OH United States

More than just satisfied. I ordered the springs on Monday morning. The springs were on my front porch Wednesday evening at 5 pm when I woke up. We had our supper and around 730 pm myself and my neighbor went to work on replacing the springs things went well and all was cleaned up by 1030 pm .I may send some pics if i can figure out how to. but the conversion from bags to springs was very easy.

Just installed the kit on my 2004 Navigator on Friday August 18, 2012. The ride is comperable, its not an air suspension however, it rides as smooth and handles great. I have test driven the new 2012 Navs with out the air suspension and hate the ride but am happy to say I still love the ride with this conversion. I love the way the truck sits up higher now and am looking forward to the first year in a long while when I can go to the mountains in the winter and not have the suspension lay down on me. I have the kneal down system on my Nav, I was not able to get the air fault to not come on so I just turned it off in the back and press reset when I get in every time. It is a small price to pay for no longer having to worry about that suspension. I highly recommend it… I did not try taking it to the dealer to have them reprogram the kneal down. I figured I would save the money and just press reset. If any one has gone that route and had success let me know I might swing for it…

Couple of months ago had the 4wd suspension kit installed by Muffler Masters and they did an excellent job. The “new ride” is equal to or better than the original “air” on my 2004 Navigator which I had bought new. The front end has less roll in curves and cornering. Frankly, I’m very surprised at the results with this aftermarket unit. But it really is as good as advertised. The car has the same stance and height as original. I wasn’t going to fix the original. Could just see an endless hole with the likelyhood of continued replacement of parts over time. But with Strutmasters when its installed, its done! And you don’t have to worry about more problems…just worry about the cost of gas to run this “beast”. Get one. You won’t regret it. Larry Shive

i had a hard time installing these conversion kit. it was not that eazy to install but ill take it to the shop and see what happens. also it was much harder than what the video says. ill update my comment after the shop.

Name: | Location: Irving, TX United States

“The installation went fine. The shop Christian Brothers in Irving, TX was very impressed with the quality of the parts and the ease of replacement. I was told that a catalog was included in the shipment. They kept it so they could offer the same kind of replacement parts to other customers. My wife enjoys her Navigator again. You have a great product. It’s a great value.
