1997 Lincoln Continental Q&A

1997 Lincoln Continental Question: rear air bag

my car has a rear air bag leak, do u know who can fix this problem or can i change the air bags to regular suspenssion shocks -
Answer 1
There are some companies that still service parts for your suspension, but they are not OEM (original equipment manufacturer). I do believe that conversion kits are available to make it a conventional shock/ spring arrangement. You will have to search the internet for the costs, because either repair route you choose, it is not cheap. Good luck. -
Comment 1
Strutmasters sell conversion kits very reasonable and easy to convert. -
Answer 2
I would make sure you know its the air bags. it could be a air line leak. then mostly likely putting the pressure on your compressor and you probably going to have to have a new one. Its a big mess to handle. I converted my 84 Lincoln Continental to a conversion kit with Strutmasters.com and i wouldnt change a thing. Its a lifetime warranty and saves you bunches of money. -
