The 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental is built with the following rear suspension components: 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental Electronic 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. Some models dampening may be controlled by the suspension control module and can be very costly to replace. 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts. 1995-2002 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. 1995-2002 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 might be failed or leaking on your 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental if you notice any of the following signs. The most obvious sign of a suspension system going bad is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Continental. Often the rear will be sagging while the front end remains inflated. This gives the illusion that the Continental is squatting down lower than it should be. Sometimes the vehicle will lean from side to side. In cases of suspension total failure, the car may look like it‚Äôs been ‚Äúslammed‚Äù down to the ground. If there is an illuminated suspension warning light or message on the instrument panel, don‚Äôt ignore it. A repair or replacement could be badly needed. Listen closely to the air compressor- is it noisy and loud (running too often)? Is it working at all (a bad suspension can cause it to wear out completely)? You‚Äôll need these things fixed before it‚Äôs too late. Overall, if the ride height does not look proper for the Lincoln Continental then you may have to get a replacement.
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Rear Air Springs ($430/air spring) + Compressor ($520) + Dryer ($180) = Over $1,500 (but that doesnt include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Rear Air Springs ($100/air spring) + Compressor Assembly w/ Dryer ($220) = Over $400 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
