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:

Hello Chip; Very pleased with the coil kit .. ran it over some rough country roads ..nice smooth ride …. glad to get rid of that air ride. thanks again.
The coil conversion kit on the lincoln continental simply put is horrible. The car bottoms out on the most mild of roads. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SUSPENSION TO ANY ONE. It is a waste of time and $700. They call it a fix when it is worse than a suspension on a taurus. I swear this company takes you for a ride. Making CHEAP suspensions, acting like it’s a sure thing and after your pay for it and put it in your car it’s JUNK!!! See if I ever buy from these guys again.
The parts went on my truck,the truck rides better then ever and it took about 4 hours including unhooking the lite in the dash.I m very very happy with this kit ! Thanks.The stature of the vehicle is even better.
Service was great, car came out great and mechanic was impressed on how easy every thing came for installation.
Best money I spent in a long time…No more air bag problems….Thanks Strutmasters….
I have waited a few months before writing a review on the 4-Wheel Air Suspension Conversion Kit with eibach springs the truck does sit a little higher but not much still looks great in my opinion the truck rides much better than with the air ride it handles corners 100 times better not as much body roll goes over speed bumps and dips better not as bouncy would recommend this kit
“This is a great product to purchase if you’re looking to get rid of your faulty Ford/Lincoln Air Ride System. The conversion kit came with everything to replace the front and rear suspension air bags/struts. The truck handles great and the ride is nice and smooth. A+ product,
When my Mark was becoming a ‘low rider’ I went to the Lincoln Dealership and asked what could be done. They said $478.00 and $300.00 to install ONE new air bag. I needed four. I asked about a conversion kit. They said “no such animal”. I decided to search the internet and found you right away. … Thank you for your help and advise. I will recommend you to every Lincoln owner that I cross paths with.
INSTALLED MY REAR KIT TODAY AND I’M GREATLY SUPRISED AND SATISFIED, THE RIDE IS OUTSTANDING AND IT FEELS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER. I’M LOOKING FOR BUMPS NOW TO RIDE OVER (LOL). I WILL BE ORDERING THE KIT FOR THE FRONT REAL SOON AND CAN’T WAIT TO PUT IT ON. THEY WERE VERY SIMPLE TO PUT ON ESPECIALLY WITH THE VIDEO AND INSTRUCTIONS. I WILL RECOMMEND THE CONVERSION KIT TO ANYBODY WITH AIR SUSPENSION. THANKS AGAIN.
“All went well. Springs installed ez and worked well. Purchasing was a breeze. no issues. Shipping was quick. You guys get an A++++ from me. I will certainly do business again.
