1997 Lincoln Town Car Problems
Sagging suspension can be a result of air suspension struts and/or drier leaking air. These type of air leaks can lead to failure of the air suspension compressor.

No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.
