1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
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’m satisfied they fit perfect. Thanks your product is the best.
“I have a 2004 Lincoln Navigator in which the front ais suspension failed/malfunction so my gator was nose down for over a month. After my local mechanic referred me to Strutmaster and said they offer the best price, i figure i would go ahead and buy online. I shopped around and by far StrutMaster was the best price around town. Furthermore, my mechanic only charged me about $400 to replace my failed Air Suspension and install these new conversion kit.
All I can say is WOW, these new suspension are smooth and EVEN BETTER than the original air suspension. I quickly took it on the freeway and felt no bumps.
Highly reccommended for price and good quality. BTW: I ordered the Eibach product. Very nice work StrutMaster”
“I have not worked on a car in over 20 years. I was able to replace the rear air suspension in under 2 hours. This kit is as easy as advertised. Thanks Strutmasters.
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.
Awesome deals. Saved me $4000.00 rides better than air thanks strutmasters !!
MUCH better than the OEM air ride. THANKS!
Everything went well. Thanks again. Tim
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.
“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.
We had installed the Navigator Conversion Kit with no problem and returned the car back to our customer yesterday.
