The 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria is built with the following rear suspension components: 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria Air Springs (x2) - commonly referred to as air bags, a plastic and rubber bag 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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 units 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. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height. 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria 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
Check your 1992-2002 Ford Crown Victoria frequently for these common signs of failed or leaking air suspension. Usually, the first sign people notice is a sudden uneven height difference between different sides of the Crown Victoria. The rear end will usually sag first while the front end will remain inflated. The car could lean from side to side. The entire vehicle may look like it is squatting down too low to the ground. Some people describe it as looking ‚Äúslammed‚Äù down. Not a good surprise when you walk outside to see this! You‚Äôll know your suspension has gone bad when a suspension warning light or message has illuminated on the instrument panel. Also, check the air compressor. A suspension total failure will cause the air compressor to run too often (will be noisy) or stop working. You need to get this fixed ASAP because if you have a bad suspension your Crown Vic will not be able to reach and hold on to its proper ride height. A repair or replacement will need to be installed.
OEM Replacement Cost
'+ Rear Air Springs ($630/spring) + Compressor Assembly ($790) + Dryer ($230) + Rear Shocks ($100) = Over $2,300 (and that doesn't even include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Rear Air Springs ($90/spring) + Rear Shocks ($30) + Compressor Assembly w/ Dryer ($210) = Over $420 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
