Why Choose Strutmasters Instead Of Those Other Guys
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 Eibach 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 âsealed the dealâ 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.
How Do I know If My Continental Air Suspension is failing?
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.

Suspension Components List
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 vehicleâs 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.

Real Customers, Real Reviews
Read reviews from people just like you looking for the perfect solution for their suspension needs.
The kit was installed by the same mechanic that I have used for many years. He indicated that the instructions were very helpful. He was able to install the kit in a manor that the “service the suspension” message doesn’t come on any longer.
The ride is better than with the OEM airbag assembly, that the car came with from the factory, and it returns the vehicle body to the factory spec height.
Also the Tech/Sales person, Darrell, that assisted me, via the “Chat” feature on the web site, was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional.
I highly recommend Strutmasters products for valve, quality, ease of installation and company’s employees assistance.
Always a pleasure working with y’all!
Found strut masters website from a Google search after the rear end of my 2002 Lincoln Continental settled when parked. Called customer service and spoke with Jason. He could not have been more friendly or knowledgeable about navigating the website, helping me find the right kit, answering questions about the kit or steering me to product tech support when required during the installation. (The kit was perfect, turns out the car had another issue with the onboard electronics that tech support helped me isolate, thank you!)
Highly recommended. Easy, straight forward installation…I will ask for Jason next time too!
Jason was awesome! When I called initially I was feeling very confused and overwhelmed. The local shops in my area had sold me a rear conversion kit that only had coils and the shocks were going to be $275 a piece…. that’s almost $600 in just parts!. Jason walked me through process, sent me email with a quote, offered to speak directly with my mechanic and then followed up that evening to make sure all was ok! So of course I just placed order. I’ll have my correct parts in next week all for $329. I am so happy and will definitely be ordering future parts from you guys!
YES I”M VERY HAPPY
“Parts worked great! Pats were perfect, shipping was fast. Thanks.
“I ORDERED BOTH FRONT AND REAR SPRING KITS TO REPLACE THE AIR BAGS. THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE KITS WERE EASY TO FOLLOW AND UNDERSTAND.
THE FRONT STRUTS WERE A LITTLE HARDER TO REPLACE, BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. THE REAR SPRINGS WERE VERY EASY TO REPLACE. AFTER REPLACING BOTH FRONT AND REAR, I THINK THE RIDE WAS BETTER THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN. (IF YOU HAVE AIR BAG PROBLEMS, I RECOMEND CHANGING THEM TO SPRINGS. IT IS A LOT EASIER ON YOUR POCKETBOOK THAN REPLACING THE AIR BAGS. TO RELPLACE THE AIR BAGS WAS $1600-1800. SPRING KITS $600-700)
IN MY CASE IT WAS WELL WORTH IT!!!!”
Thanks for the email. We are satisfied with the product. It is quality and our customer was very impressed.
I have a 98 lincoln continental and I ordered some rear springs to do away with the air bags in the back and they workd real good. I’m proud of them. There’s one guy that works there named Fred, I talk to him a bit and he seems to know what he’s talking about. I’m happy with your product I will be buying from again. Thank you.
“I just want to share my appreciation for your employee, Mandy Chubbuck. She was very helpful today, as I had a couple of questions concerning my installation. She was very persistant in assisting me in finding the answers. Thank you Mandy, and thank you Strutmasters for having employees like her.
