The 1988-1994 Lincoln Continental is built with the following rear suspension components:
1988-1994 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.
1988-1994 Lincoln Continental 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.
1988-1994 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.
1988-1994 Lincoln Continental 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.
1988-1994 Lincoln Continental 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.
1988-1994 Lincoln Continental 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.
1988-1994 Lincoln Continental Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
1988-1994 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.
1988-1994 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
Do you suspect your 1988-1994 Lincoln Continental Rear Air Suspension is failed or leaking? Does your car look like it ‚Äúslammed‚Äù down to the ground? Maybe it‚Äôs not that extreme, but there are some obvious signs of a suspension going bad that you should look out for. The most common is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the Lincoln Continental. Sometimes this looks like a lean from left to right, or vice versa. Usually, the rear will fail and sag while the front remains inflated. This gives the impression that the Continental is squatting down low to the ground. On the interior, a suspension warning light or message may be illuminated- bad sign. Also, listen to the air compressor. If it has stopped working or has been running too long (more than 15-20 seconds), a bad suspension may have caused it to wear out. If your vehicle is not meeting and maintaining its appropriate ride height, you will need to get it fixed.
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Front Electronic/Air Strut Assemblies ($400/strut)
+ Compressor ($460)
+ Dryer ($190)
= Over $1,400 (but that doesnt include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Front Electronic/Air Strut Assemblies ($200/strut)
+ Compressor Assembly w/ Dryer ($220)
= Over $600 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
There is a wide array of assorted parts that make up the bad air suspension system on your Lincoln Continental. We are the Suspension Experts, so we made it our job to come up with a high-quality alternative to constant repair at the dealership. We created a conversion kit that eliminates the dependence on all those parts working properly and in sync. The kit is a direct replacement- no modifications needed. This kit includes two completely pre-assembled coil-over strut assemblies for the rear end using high-quality coil springs. The kit was created to save time, frustration, and a ton of money. The cost difference between choosing an air vs non-air suspension system is huge- our customers tell us this is what sealed the deal. On this page we look closer at three different prices: that of repairing your air suspension system at the dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Continental individually, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache forever and installing a brand new Strutmasters coil spring suspension conversion kit today. Youll be glad you went with that last choice!
