Leave the car running. Raise the end that you want to lower to where the vehicle is just above level. This will make the height sensor tell the control module that the end of the vehicle you raised is too high. The control module will open the solenoids in the struts, and open the solenoid at the compressor. Once the air is successfully purged. About 2 minutes. You can then shut the vehicle off. Turn the air ride switch off. Lower the vehicle.
OEM air suspension? on board compressor
Depends on what you're driving. Most cars have gas shocks and some have air shocks. Air shocks are more comfortable, with an automatic leveller, as in Lincoln Continental, in my opinion.
It may very well have shocks in the rear or it may have the Air Ride system. Crawl under the car and look see.
A 1988 Lincoln Towncar has shocks in the front.
It's either the control arm bushings or the rubber mounts for the shocks.
You have to replace with springs and shocks
You might try installing a set of coilover shocks for about $75.
Auto parts stores sell a kit with springs and shocks that replaces the rear air bags with springs. Been there, done that.
one of the bags is broken or something wrong with the lines just go to shocks! i have a 93 and a replaces the front bags 2 times or each side in two years i just took some shocks off of a some other car
the air suspension sensors for each air shocks are located on the top of each air strut, two in the trunk and the other two under the hood.

There are shock absorbers in the front on a 1998 Lincoln Town Car
Yes, one at each wheel
It comes on long enough for the shocks to fill up and then shuts off. Is your car raised when it shuts off? If the shocks are in good shape without leaks, that's usually the time the compressor takes to pump up the shocks.
Not if they are struts - need a spring compressor
Good luck doing that yourself since Continentals have an electronic air bag suspension, your better off bringing it to a mechanic, if you bust one of those air bags its $400 per bag, my advise take it in. Not all lincoln continentals have air ride.
Buy strutmasters for either the front or back or both. I replaced the rear air shocks on my 1995 town car with them and they are great for the price. Go to www.strutmasters.com and check them out.
None but some people use the T-Bird springs and shocks.
You could do that. The air shocks would have to be manually inflated. You may run into a competition between the manually leveling system and the automatic levilng system.
First, you must know that the Lincoln Towncar does not have air shocks. Instead, it has air bags. What this means is that in place of steel springs your Lincoln has rubber cushions that are filled with air, known as air bags.
