Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys

This conversion kit gets rid of the need for all the faulty air suspension parts on the Lincoln Mark VIII to work properly and in sync. The assorted parts can give you a headache when they need repair at the dealership- some parts may not be readily available any longer! We created our air to non-air suspension conversion kit to eliminate this problem forever. This kit includes two Eibach coil springs and mounts with hardware to delete the rear air suspension system on the Mark VIII. DIYers love the kit because it is installed in about one hour per wheel, and the suspension warning light turns off after about thirty minutes. It saves you time and frustration, but also a huge chunk of change. The cost difference is so big, it usually seals the deal for customers choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. We review three prices up above, scroll up to see how much money you can save: the price of repairing the air suspension system at the Lincoln dealership, the price of installing aftermarket air suspension parts piece-by-piece, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride forever and installing a Strutmasters brand new coil spring suspension conversion kit today. Your wallet will thank you for making the “switch”!

How Do I know If My Mark VIII Air Suspension is failing?

There are common signs that the air suspension system on your 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is going bad or has already failed. You want to try to catch a suspension problem when it is still leaking, rather than waiting until total failure has been reached. The most noticeable sign is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Mark VIII. Typically one end will sag while the other remains inflated. This can be front vs rear, or left vs right. Sometimes there is simply a lean from one side to the other. If you think your Mark is having issues reaching and maintaining its proper ride height in any way, then a bad suspension is probably to blame. Look for an illuminated suspension warning message on the instrument panel to confirm. Other components may wear out, too. The air compressor, for example, may have stopped working or may run too often (will be very loud and noisy).

Suspension Components List

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.

“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!”

“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.”
