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 used the conversion kit for my Ford 2003 Expedition, and it was easy and only took me and a buddy about 2.5 hours to do all four wheels. The ride is as good as the air suspension, and i dont have to worry about any more broken bags. the cost of doing all four wheels is less than doing 2 of the air bags, and I had already replced the compressor once. The height of the vehicle is approx1-2 inches higher than the air suspension, but i like the higher look. Thanks strutmaster- well worth the money.
Thanks so much for the air to coil spring suspension conversion package for my 1996 Grand Marquis. This was my father’s last new car that I want to keep as long as possible. The local Ford dealership wanted over $1600.00 for replacement air suspension parts less shocks with no guarantee that more parts would not be needed. The Ford dealership would not even quote a job labor price @ $95 / hr. I had a local garage, Ultimate Auto at 50 Millennium Drive in Quispamsis, New Brunswick (506-849-6396) do the job. ($228.00) They had the Marquis converted in less than two and one half hours. I don’t have before pictures but suffice to say she was the lowest of the low riders with both rear air bags blown. The garage had to get creative to get the car on the hoist because of the collapsed rear suspension. I have attached pictures of the after condition. Feel free to use as you wish. I certainly would endorse the conversion. . Again – thanks for giving an aging car an affordable new suspension -and one by the way that rides better.
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
I wanted to thank you for providing the great products for my car so quickly. My friend already has installed them and the car is driving so smooth I could swear that it is new. I will tell everyone about your professional company. Have a super weekend!
“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.”
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…
I installed the rear coils on my ’99 Town Car in just a little over two hours using simple tools. Of course, I used quality jack stands and chock-blocked the front tires. The car’s ride height was restored and the ride itself is factory new. I’ve fallen back in love with my Lincoln!
Ooops wish I would have read this before replacing the air shocks I would have taken a before picture. I appreciate your concern and your follow-up, it is so rare that a business concerns itself with a customer after the sale. I am very pleasantly surprised and I will enclose some pictures of the repaired vehicle in my driveway (the same driveway my car didn’t have the clearance to get out of). I tried 3 times unsuccessfully to leave my driveway for work, the vehicle was so low in the back the mud flaps had to be removed. Installation was very easy and I am very satisfied with price and performance of your product. I found your product on the internet while searching for options to repair. Kudos to your advertising department and another thumbs up to “you-tube” for having a step by step replacement video. On the road again, Doug
I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion but sometimes they your keep lies to themselves. The first review that talks about the ride is not great and these struts are not worth it is a complete lie. I just installed my struts on my 04 Lincoln Nav and I swear it is the best thing I have done to my SUV. The ride feels just like the air ride suspension and I put that on my life. I am so impressed with how my truck rides, it feels like I just bought the truck off the showroom floor. Was not hard at all, all you need are the right tools and a little muscle and you will have no problem getting it done. I would say if you can change oil you can change your struts, Strutmasters you truly are masters of strut and I salute you!!!!!
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
