@ 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.

Air suspension keeps running, so the other day the back end completely quit and is now sagging. So, not driving car until it gets repaired. Don't want to spend a lot but probably don't have a choice. Not even sure who to go to as Planet ford/Lincoln is the closes but don't trust them.
