The 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental is built with the following suspension components:
1995-2002 Lincoln Continental Air Springs (x4) - 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 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.
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 (x4) - 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 (x4) - 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
You will know if your 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental has a failed or leaking air suspension system if you notice any of the following common signs. You will want to properly diagnose a bad suspension and get it fixed before total failure sets in. The most commonly seen sign is a sudden noticeable uneven height difference between different sides of the Continental. Usually, the rear end is sagging while the front end remains inflated. This makes the Continental look like it is squatting down too low to the ground. Sometimes there is a slight lean from one side to the other. If the ride height generally looks off, there is most likely a problem with the air suspension system. Check the instrument cluster for an illuminated suspension warning light or message. Also, listen to the air compressor. If it has stopped working or is running too often (loud and noisy), a suspension repair or replacement may be imminent.
OEM Replacement Cost
+ Rear Air Springs ($430/air spring)
+ Rear Electronic Shocks ($220/shock)
+ Compressor ($520)
+ Dryer ($180)
= Over $2,000 (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)
+ Rear Electronic Shocks ($260/shock)
+ Compressor Assembly w/ Dryer ($220)
= Over $1,700 (but that doesn't include replacing electronic components that are known to fail such as the height sensors).
There is a wide assortment of parts that make up the faulty air suspension system on your 1995-2002 Lincoln Continental. We pride ourselves on being called The Suspension Experts, so we knew we could come up with an affordable and high-quality direct replacement solution that could save time, frustration, and money. The result- our unique air to non-air suspension conversion kit. This kit includes two coil springs and two shocks for the rear of the Continental. The kit was designed for DIYers and it eliminates the dependency on a bunch of faulty electrical components. The cost difference between choosing an air vs non-air suspension system is huge. Most customers tell us this is what "sealed the deal" for them. On this page we outline three prices: that of repairing your air suspension system at the Lincoln dealer, that of installing aftermarket air suspension parts on your Continental individually, and that of getting rid of the faulty air ride headache for good and installing a brand new Strutmasters coil spring suspension conversion kit.
