Asked in Ford Crown Victoria
Should you shut off the air ride system on 93 crown vic in the winter?
No. If you shut it off, the back end will ride on the ground. The air ride is the suspension, the air bags replace coil springs. And, if you ever have major problems with it, look up strutmasters.com, and just replace the bags with real coil springs. ...

Can the air ride system in a Lincoln Mark VIII be repaired?
You can replace the bags. The down side to that is your suspension is old and the components are old and warn. What happens when you put new bags on the car they are fresh and the compression has to work extra hard to break in the air bags and pump up the stiffer bags. That's when everything goes out. I had a 1997 Town car and my rear bags went out. I bought a kit online. It took me 20...

If you don't know what you're doing, best to have someone who does do this for you. With the trailer disconnected, you'll see a lever valve which connects to your rear air suspension. Lifting up on this increases the amount of pressure in the air bags - pushing down on it decreases the air pressure. ...
Asked in Lincoln Town Car, Ford Crown Victoria
Why is there no air going to the air bags in suspension?
There could be several reasons. First check the air pump. Start with the fuses, then the switch in the trunk. Then check the pump with direct current. If the pump works with a bypass, then check the leveling sensor at the rear suspension. If you find that it will be an expensive job to have the air suspension, then go the alternate route. Check out " Strutmasters " in the net. The air bags can be replaced with coil springs at a...

Yes it does, it will automatically add air to the rear bags if people get in the back and if people get out of the back it will release air, it corrects itself to proper ride height, even when your going down the road its adds or releases.

Asked in Lincoln
Your 97 Lincoln air suspension riding high in rear and wont come down?
Replace both valve solenoids on the rear air bags, and replace the rear ride height sensor... There is only one for the rear and it connects from the car body to the suspension arm on the drivers side...I am sure that the sensor is bad but there is a chance that your solenoid valves on both airbags could be stuck. ...
Asked in American Cars
What kinds of air suspension problems can occur?
You have the air lines, which can get leaks and holes. Also, the dryers and compressors can give out if the system has leaks. Also, the air bags, solenoids, relays, all of these components make up the air suspension in a vehicle. Although people love the smooth ride an air system provides, once these fail it's no longer a smooth ride but a big headache. Suspension solution..... conversion kit. These take the air components out but don't compromise the air ride feel. ...

What is a typical problem with the air ride on a 99 town car?
I own a 2001 Lincoln town car and i had a problem where the "air suspension" light was on in the instrument cluster and the rear end started to sag. turns out the air bags were leaking and the air compressor is designed to turn off in this situation to prevent the compressor from burning up. I ended up replacing the rear air bags with a coil spring kit which i found new for around $300 versus the more expensive new...
Asked in Lincoln Navigator, Lincoln Town Car
What parts do you need to convert air ride suspension to coil spring and shock suspension?
I have a 1994 towncar and I took the bags off mine and put springs on them. Ford sell a conversion kit. Its really not a kit its just two springs that fit where the bags are. It ran about 250 for the kit. And my mechanic had them on in no time. Some places charge alot but its simple. Buy the kit from Ford and do it yourself. Also you can find the after market bags on eBay for around...
