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 rear suspension components:
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Air Springs (x2) - 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 Shock Absorbers (x2) - these control the wheel-to-ground contact for the rear of the vehicle.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Height Sensors (x2) - 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 (x2) - 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, 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.

Suspension Kits Reviews
VERY GOOD PRODUCT AND SERVICE
“I bought the set of struts for the car and all I can say, for the first time since I’ve owned the car I really enjoy it, everything is just perfect. Finally, I have the ride I’ve expected from Lincoln.
I wish Ford itself employed you guys to build the suspension for their cars, maybe they’ll continue the mark viii series. So, I really appreciate it.”
“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!”
