Are suspension light comes on and sagging in back
Air leaking from bags - told it was $1000 to replace, lots of other problems other people have posted as well including: water on floorboard (rear passenger) when it rains, check engine light keeps coming on due to gas cap (even after having it replaced at the dealer), I take manifold leaking (we had the same problem with our 1996 town car), electrical issues - power windows and seats randomly work.
@ 130k miles, every morning the driver side rear was sitting low. Starting car fixed it. 3k miles later, dash light "Check Air Suspension" would be on at start, until car was level. Leaky air bag. Lincoln estimate was $900 for repair, $700 for replace with springs. Caught it early, the compressor did not need replacing. Bought air bags & dryer rebuild kit on eBay. Works great. I recommend a new dryer, the rebuild kit takes too much time. Still need new shocks.
retrofitted with regular struts

THe rear end is sagging I did the water and soap test I was able to find a really really small amount of bubbles , not sure if that is the problem , or the compressor . - note the air bags are both after market , and now one of them is only leaking with a tiny amount of bubbles . Thank you guys hope you could help

Car sagging to the ground in the back and won't raise even when started
Mechanics kept replacing a fuse in the Air Suspension system but it would just short out again after a couple of weeks. My boyfriend eventually paid to have it converted to an ordinary stationary suspension system against my wishes. He was afraid I was going to scrape a hole in the underside of the car somewhere. The car still has less than 100k miles on it.
Rear end of car is sagging to the ground and won't air up any more.
