you do mean shocks and not airbags right? well, you change shocks on the rear just like any other car with them but on a Lincoln the best way is to have the car resting all the way down,"with the airbag switch off". place a jack directly on the rearend and raise the vehical a little to release tension off the bolts. it's easier to put them on this way cause when you buy new shocks they are already compressed and its hard to pull or extend a compressed shock.
