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
The product is performing great according to my daughter who drives the car. Her voicemail to me after previously driving the car with the failed air suspension system sounded positively exuberant! It was due to watching the video that the installation took less than one hour from jack up to back on the ground. It was more of a help than a thousand words of written instruction would have been.
“I replaced my rear Air springs with Strutmaster regular springs last weekend. The entire job took about 3 hours and most of that time was getting my Expedition lifted high enough work on it. The jacks that I have, lifted the Expedition high enough to to change the tire but not high enough to pull the axle down to provide room to install the new spring (For safety, I did use jack stands once the vehicle was lifted). Once that was solved the replacement went smoothly.
All in all I’m very happy with the springs and I’m glad to be rid of my problematic rear air suspension. If and when the front suspension goes, I will definitely replace it with you standard spring/shock front suspension kit.
Everything went great. Thanks alot.
“Thank you, everything went together well, as planned. I am sorry to say I forgot to take any pictures. I really meant to do that, because my airbags were completely shot! Thanks for a good product.
Phil Brewer (Teresa’s father).”
I hired a family member to install this kit on my 1999 Lincoln TC – maintaining the air suspension was no picnic. This kit was easy to install (I’m told) and really firmed up my ride. Now I can drive into my driveway and back into the street without scraping my hitch receiver. Customer service at this company is unbelievably friendly and courteous.
Yes the kit worked great.
“Just had my air suspension replaced with the “”2003-2006 Lincoln Navigator 4-Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit (2WD & 4WD)”” I am so relieved, the ride is great, and the quality of the struts were great (according to my mechanic and from what I saw)! Delivery took about a week and the tech service, and Dustin & Vito were more that helpful!
Living in the Denver area, every time the temp would drop below 20 degrees so would the front end … when it did it while I was on the interstate at 65 mph it got my attention … started to get the “”bring it back in if it does it again”” story from the dealership … what a pain — Thanks Dustin, I am very happy with my new “”ride”” :0)
“We would not recommend any the kit on the market. i just finished installing this kit on a customers truck. follow the link to see our before and after pictures:
“Everything went great with my air suspension conversion. My Navigator
rides better already and looks great. Price was good/ quick delivery/
easy install/ all parts needed were included/ truck rides great. I
would recommend u guys to anyone
“So far so good with my new struts. I had a dealer install them, and that went well at about 5 total hours. This seems to be a great solution to the spendy air bag shocks. Assuming the new struts hold up as advertised, I am now a believer in your product, and would never go back to the air system.
