The 1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII is built with the following rear suspension components:
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.
1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII 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
There are some universally recognizable signs of a failed or leaking air suspension system. Look for any of these signs in your 1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII to help diagnose an air suspension that is going bad before it reaches total failure. The most noticeable sign is an uneven height difference between different sides of the Mark VII. Usually one end will sag while the other end remains inflated (front, rear, left, or right). This is described as ‚Äúsquatting.‚Äù Perhaps you notice a slight lean from one side to the other. If you notice any issue with your Mark VII reaching and maintaining the proper ride height then a bad suspension is likely the reason. An illuminated suspension warning message or light on the instrument cluster will confirm this suspicion. Furthermore, check other components for signs of wear out. Listen to the air compressor- if it has stopped working or is running too often (will be very loud and noticeably noisy) then an air suspension repair or replacement is probably necessary.

As The Suspension Experts, we know everything there is to know about the assorted parts that make up the air suspension system on the 1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII. Many of these parts are not even manufactured any longer. We created a conversion kit that will eliminate the need for this variety of outdated parts to function together properly. This kit includes two custom-tapered rear coil springs . This is the only kit on the market for the Lincoln Mark VII that uses performance-driven coil springs. We designed our kits to be more affordable and reliable than the original parts. We back up our products with the Strutmasters 1-year warranty. No modifications are required before the conversion is installed- its a direct replacement. The kit is installed in about one hour per wheel, and the suspension warning message turns off after about thirty minutes. DIYers love the kit because the installation instructions are so easy to follow, complete with pictures and helpful support information. Our experts uploaded videos of themselves performing actual installations on our YouTube channel- check them out to learn how to do it! Lastly, our in-house technicians are available to answer any question you may have regarding the bad air suspension on your 1984-1992 Lincoln Mark VII.
