the 88 may be one of the years that after market Taurus struts will fit in with a conversion package to replace the air bag suspension entirely. The alternative is dealer item only, and very very expensive.

I agree that this system can be expensive BUT: Bagmasters, American Air suspension, Arnott Ind. and Strutmasters all have replacement parts for much less than the dealers. Take a look here -> <- for all the info you could possibly want.

I agree. Go to, Its cheap either way (bags or springs)and you get instructions with any thing you buy. I have put springs all around on My 1989 Mark VII and trust me its easy, while your down there you might want to go ahead and replace struts and shocks.
