This Conversion Kit Fits1984 Lincoln Continental, 1985 Lincoln Continental, 1986 Lincoln Continental, 1987 Lincoln Continental
The 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental is built with the following rear suspension components: 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental 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. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Shock Absorbers (x2)- 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. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental 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. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Air Lines- tubes that run from a compressor (air suspension) to the air struts which carry pressurized air to the air bags components in order to adjust the height of the vehicle, respectively. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Solenoids (x2)- usually either L-shaped or straight, 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. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Compressor- 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. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Dryer Assembly- used to keep moisture out of air lines and air springs in order to prevent freezing and internal cracking of these parts. Once air suspension starts leaking, moisture will build-up throughout the air system. Moisture damages the air suspension from the inside. The dryer will need to be replaced in order to eliminate the moisture and prevent any further damage. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height. 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental 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.
Suspension Failure Signs
The air suspension system on your 1984-1987 Lincoln Continental may be leaking, failed, or even experiencing total failure. It has served you well over the years but it may be time to tackle the problem head on. The most noticeable sign of a bad suspension is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Continental. Usually one end is sagging while the other remains inflated (front, rear, left or right side). The Continental may look like it‚Äôs squatting. It may slightly lean from one side to the other. In the case of total failure, it may ‚Äúslam‚Äù down into the ground at the slightest bump in the road- not good! If you think your Continental is having a hard time reaching and maintaining its appropriate ride height, a suspension repair or replacement is imminent. Confirm the symptoms by looking for a suspension warning message or light on the instrument panel. Also, check the air compressor for signs that it is running too often (very loud and noisy) or not working at all. Once the suspension on your Lincoln Continental goes bad, all other components may wear out.
