air shocks on 1996 Lincoln Continental

my car is riding low and really bouncy! i have been told that there is a leak in the hose on the front passenger side. i dont have the money for a conversion kit to struts so, i just need to know what does "there is a leak in the hose mean" and what part should i replace to make my car lift back up and stop bouncing???

Go to for reasonable pricing or more indepth parts at You can find the same on ebay motors. One is available for front replacements for $175 both sides.

ifyou can find the leak - splice it or replace the line. i would check the front air strut for rot first tho - remove the front passenger tire and inspect the air strut for wear and dry rot.
