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:

I want to Thank You All for the way you do business. From the moment I called the first time, everybody was very polite and helpful, especially Jason. He answered all my questions no matter how many times I called. He was there for me until you shipped my parts. I had a little problem once I got my kit, I could not find any body that would install them for me because the kit was not from them and the ones I did find said it would take any where from 4-5 hours. A manager from an auto part store gave us the name of California Smog and Repairs (Suspensions) at 10711 Beach Bl., Stanton, CA 90680 (714-995-7591). Gave them a call and they said they could install them in 2 hours. The going rate for labor here in Orange County is $85.00 per hour. I gave them the coupon on the last page of the instruction book that came with my kit. If any body order your kits from California you now have a contact here that will help us poor people. I found you because Air Lift wouldn’t sell to me because I’m not a company and then when I went through Camping World, they didn’t have the parts for 2 wheel drive. I wrote to my friends on FACEBOOK about how much money ($1200.00) I saved with you guys coming to my rescue. Thank You…JASON.
Best money I spent in a long time…No more air bag problems….Thanks Strutmasters….
“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:
“Other then removing the Old factory parts..the New Strutmasters Parts Fit and Ride ..Perfect…Will Spread the News too all owners Of Mark VII I know….www.cardomain.com
“Airbag to rear coil conversion on ’97 Lincoln MK VIII eliminated the recent sporadic rear end drop due to leaking bags. Glad I did it, ride and handling are great, only thing now is it sits a little higher, but should settle in time. Was torn between keeping the air and risking future issues on a 16 yr. old system (that served well by the way) or making the conversion. Decided to eliminate that possibility…no worries now. If the front ever starts causing concern, will convert it too!
Strutmasters stayed true to every claim, and their representative (Brad) was very helpful and totally customer oriented, even to the point of finding trustworthy, experienced local shops for the installation. First one I called was great and did an excellent job for a reasonable cost, up to and including disabling the “”Check Air Suspension”” warning. Good experience all around!”
“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!
Just wanted to say thank you Strut Masters. The dealer wanted to charge my Mother $1200.00 for air bags and a compressor for her 1991 Lincoln Town Car. You had a complete package and it fit perfectly. In 3 hours she was back on the road. Thanks again! You might want to mention on your web site that the compressor is under the window washer fluid reservoir. Took me 30 minutes to find it. I’ll be back for sure.
The installation of the new struts took a little longer than was listed but they work great! Thank you.
Just wanted to let you guys(and gals) know that I was EXTREMELY SATISFIED with the money that I spent with your company. You guys are truly professional, and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND your company to ALL OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS! Thank You!
“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.
