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:

“We installed the rear air springs on the lincoln navigator that we purchased from your company. The are working fine and the customer is very happy to get her air ride back. She did not want a less comfortable ride as a result of doing a conversion away from her air suspension.
Thank you for your products.

I purchased a set of Struts after having the air ride go out on my Lincoln Navigator. This is my 3rd one so I know the money pit it can become taking it to the dealer. The kit was easy to install after tracking down the nessecary tools but all in all saved me over $1200 over taking it to the dealer. My truck rides better than new. I have the kneel down function and Mike in customer support was outstanding. Very knowledgable and eager to help. If you need to replace that destined to fail air ride, this is the solution. I have my friend so impressed he is replacing his and it isnt even broken.
My overall experience from conversations on the phone with the techs, to the instructions provided were great and I would not change anything.
“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!
Kit was as advertised; received the next day; which was awesome. Price charged to install was very reasonable and worth the conversion.
Very good PR to have that much customer interest. Town Car in the shop now. Dealer estimate to replace air suspension $1,465. Your parts to convert $265 delivered, est. $150 shop charge, total $415. Car is 13 years olod, 127K miles, now driven only in town. Savings $1,050. No Decision To Make Here!! Thanks again for your interest.
Thank you for having these replacement parts. I wish I had known about these a year ago, before I spent $1600 on new air bags and a compressor just on the front. I am not mechanically inclined but found these struts easy to install. Thank you again.
How does a 49 year old woman replace air suspension on 91 town car to springs? STRUTMASTER!! Everything was there including detailed instructions; also watched a video on YouTube. Not going to lie, after an hour of trying to jack the car up high enough to put it on jack stands I had to call in reinforcement, my brother. I was sitting so low my bumper was only about 4 inches off the road. A couple of hours later, most of that time spent still jacking up the rear end, and waiting for W-D 40 to loosen up 22 year old nuts” I was on the road again”. Myself and a couple of other people say it rides just as good as when the air ride was working. Loved my conversion kit and the tech I ordered from who gave me a direct number to contact him. I will refer every one that I find with air suspension problems or not to Strutmasters. instead of all the mechanics that refused to give me an estimate because it is such a” difficult job!” LOL Was a little jealous of their hydraulic jacks though.
“When I opened the boxes I have to say I was impressed by the powder coated springs. Checked everything out and started to install. Well I just have to say, damn what a good fit. Went smooth as butter and the ride is premo!!!! Excellent ride height and good feel on the road. Air ride computer checks ok after wires cut. Just had to tell you, also that I was very apprehensive on putting on aftermarket suspension. Mostly due to fit problems that I thought would occur. So to say that I am happy. Well I have told my friends that own repair shops about your product, and would do this again in a second.
P.S. Your service on the phone was good and put me at ease. Especially when a lot, and I mean a lot of businesses promise a good product and fall short. This is from someone who has been to the SEMA show 14 times.”
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!
