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
“This was one of the best choices I ever made to change the air suspension on my navigator,no more problems,save money,great product,very helpful rep.
thanks again for a great product Gord”
I got this kit installed and my Navi sits at perfect height now. After many problems with the Factory air bag setup, I just got fed up with the prices and the many problems. This kit rides a little rougher than the factory air ride but I will have NO MORE PROBLEMS WITH THE SUSPENSION ANYMORE!
“I bought the air-to-standard conversion for my Lincoln Mark VIII last month. I’m very satisfied with the way Strutmasters does business. The website is easy to find and use, and its easy to order. The 800-number is prominently displayed and your customer service is top rate. Its obvious your customer service is something you’ve put a lot of effort into, and you should be very proud of the results. Don’t ever get rid of it and go to entirely web-based ordering like so many other companies.
The installation went well, no major issues. When all was said and done, I should have ordered the rear shocks with my initial order as your customer service rep Dustin suggested.
Over all, I was very satisfied with Strutmasters, and my Lincoln is standing proud again.
Hello, I was really satisfied with my purchase. I ordered the part in the morning and it was shipped that day (as promised). I got emails giving me a status of the item. I would’ve given you an excellent review, but I just found out that I have to buy some sort of module to get rid of the message on my dashboard. I was told that since I am a current customer, I would get the item for $200 versus $400. The message states that the “suspension system is off.” I have to push the reset button to get rid of it. I thought that the person that installed it would be able to call the toll-free and be instructed on how to turn the light off. Other than that, I am very satisfied and would recommend strutmasters to anybody.
I had baught a conversion kit from air shocks to regular shocks for a 1993 mercury lincon mark 8 and the dealer said the shocks needed no cutting no nothing but the tools it was the best deal money can buy the car has a new lease it looks awesome I recommend them highly
I purchased and installed the front strut and rear coil conversions for my Lincoln Continental and have been very happy with the performance.
With advice from Strutmasters I replaced my rear bags with their springs, what a mistake. Bounces like crazy even with new Monroe sensatrac shocks. After the first call to strutmasters for advice they won’t return my messages. They want 20% to restock and told me to put weight in my truck to help the bounce, what a joke! But I guess the joke’s on me and anyone else that does buisness with this company. It’s been several months since I put their springs on my car and they told me that it should be fine after 2 months, of driving, it’s the same without change. I’m dissappointed with this company and the way they’ve handled my concern.
Thanks to you for your product and staff. I just completed installing the 4 coil-over strut conversions on my 2003 Navigator. Purchase was a breeze with you friendly folks on the other end. Installation was as easy as advertised and the ride is very comfortable. No more worrying about leaky airbags, long-running compressor, etc. Thanks again for developing such a good product and making it easy for a shade-tree guy like me to install.
I had the conversion kit installed on my Lincoln Town Car and it once again rides like a Lincoln should! I spend many hours in my car, so the kit has saved me a lot of stress. Thank you for your help and for your great product.
“Here are a couple of pics from the before and after using the Strutmasters coil spring conversion. Great product and easy to follow instructions, my step-mother was glad to get her car back on the road again!
