Additional Suspension 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:

Suspension Kits Reviews
“I purchased your strutmasters conversion kit from air ride to progressive springs and new gas shocks. My Expedition rides and handles better than when I bought it new.
I appreciate Strutmasters prompt processing and shipment of my order. We have installed the products and all is well at this point. I’d like to thank you and your staff for the highest level of customer service and I intend to recommend Strutmasters products to family and friends.
“I desperately needed your product. The dealer said it would be like $1300 to repair the air suspension system, which didn’t even include a few more components that might fail in the future. So when I called, your hotline was nice enough to take a minute to find the people around here to put them in (installed) at a very reasonable cost. At any rate, you folks ought to be sincerely congratulated as you saved me a great deal of money, since by replacing the springs of the air bags with springs, I’ve eliminated the need for anything else.
As for you to improve your service, I have no idea, as it seems to be fabulous as it is, at any rate, you’ve also managed to kick the UPS people in the butt, the product was shipped from you and got to the installation place in less than 48 hours.so I was extremely impressed, to concluded I think your product is great, I think your service reps was beyond great, and I don’t know how you could improve your customer service, feel free to use any or all of this as a testimonial.”
I ordered the complete conversion kit for 97, mark 8 lincoln continental. Not only did you guys send the parts right away, but I was very impressed with the quality of parts, the easy ability to switch it over, the hotline were the guys I spoke to were really knowledgeable, and gave me good advice. It could not have gone any better and I think you guys are an excellent sales team and company. I appreciate everything you have done for me and in the future if I need something for the car you carry I’m definitely getting a hold of you again, thanks.
“I recently purchased your rear conversion kit for my 1999 Lincoln Navigator and will have to say that the kit is “”Perfect””. Pam who was the representative that helped me was great. She was very informative and reassured that Strutmasters product was a top grade, which I will have to agree. I thank you all and recomend to anyone who has a vehicle like mine to use Strutmasters. One last thing I’m sure people are asking. How is the ride after the installation? My answer is simply – SSSMMMOOOOOTTTTTHHHH!
Thanks Pam and Strutmasters!”
Had some problems with the air suspension, took it to a local dealership and as in most cases, got the run around. They told me I needed a front air bag sensor and that was just the start. Pricing there was just about $500 just to replace the sensor. I had enough familiarity with the suspension that I knew it would continue to have some problems. I heard about these conversion kits, I went online, found strutmasters, found a very easy to navigate website (appreciated that) and called your customer service hotline. A person answered right away and talked for a few minutes, and again convinced me , not that I needed convincing, but did convince me that the conversion was relatively easy to do it, even though I didn’t do it, I hired somebody to put it on. Unfortunately, I tried to go local to get the conversion kit, I went to NAPA, they dropped the ball and ended up getting the wrong parts, I returned them, went back to strutmasters, I had the right parts within 2 days. Overall, I am very very pleased with the way strutmasters is haneled, the information I needed as well as giving me the product, I highly recommend the company, thank you.
The shipment arrived on Friday, 12/11 and we installed it on Saturday, 12/12. It worked just like advertised. The customer is extremely happy.

“I have a 2004 Lincoln Navigator in which the front ais suspension failed/malfunction so my gator was nose down for over a month. After my local mechanic referred me to Strutmaster and said they offer the best price, i figure i would go ahead and buy online. I shopped around and by far StrutMaster was the best price around town. Furthermore, my mechanic only charged me about $400 to replace my failed Air Suspension and install these new conversion kit.
All I can say is WOW, these new suspension are smooth and EVEN BETTER than the original air suspension. I quickly took it on the freeway and felt no bumps.
Highly reccommended for price and good quality. BTW: I ordered the Eibach product. Very nice work StrutMaster”
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
My Lincoln rides worse than my truck, I am so mad that I spent $700 for junk, the parts cannot be engineered for a Lincoln, just buy taurus parts and save money
