The 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is built with the following front suspension components:
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Dryer- prevents moisture build-up inside of air suspension parts.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Suspension Control Module- a computer which is responsible for the operations of the air suspension system and maintaining the vehicles correct ride height.
1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII 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
You may be on this page if you notice your 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII is no longer reaching or maintaining its appropriate ride height. This is a bad sign; the air suspension system may be failed or leaking. The most common symptom of this occurring is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the Mark VIII. Typically one side will sag while the other will remain inflated. This can be front vs rear, or right vs left. Maybe there is just a slight lean from one side to the other. Whichever describes your Mark VIII, a bad suspension is likely to blame. You‚Äôll want a bad suspension fixed ASAP before other components begin to wear out. Check the air compressor to see if it is still working, or maybe running too often (in which case it would be very loud and noisy). Lastly, confirm your suspicion by looking for an illuminated suspension warning light on the instrument panel.
OEM Replacement Cost
SOME PARTS DISCONTINUED!
Aftermarket Replacement Cost
'+ Front Air Strut Assemblies ($210/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 faulty air suspension system on your 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII. Get rid of the air ride headache forever by switching to our air to non-air suspension conversion kit. This kit includes two pre-assembled coilover strut assemblies for the front of the Lincoln Mark using high-quality coil springs. This kit gets rid of the expensive dependency on parts working in sync. Some of those original parts are unreliable, and replacements may not even be available any longer! This kit saves you a lot of time and frustration; it can be installed yourself and you never have to take it to the dealership again! The cost difference is huge, too. The low price is usually what seals the deal for customers choosing between an air vs non-air suspension system. We compare three prices: that of repairing your air suspension system at the dealership, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Lincoln Mark piece by piece, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache forever by installing the Strutmasters coilover suspension conversion kit today.
