Town Car Front Leveling Problem
Unlike a Mark VII or Mark VIII, the Town Car only has air suspension on the rear. So if you have a front leveling problem, it's most likely going to be a conventional coil spring problem. Before jumping into a spring swap or replacement, you should measure all 4 corners and compare heights on each side. Ford says that anything more than a 1/2-inch difference from side to side is out of specs. So, if the rear is within the 1/2-inch tolerance, but the front is off 1/2 inch or more, the front should be addressed first. If the rear is out more than the front, it should be addressed first.
When Town cars get allot of time on the clock, they sometimes will tend to sag on one side or another because the coil springs get weak. I found that on Most '91-'97 Town Cars(it may be more years), they were built with a different kind of body mount in the front.
1) You must raise vehicle in the air and put jack stand under the body(right next to mount), hold the top nut(18mm) on the core support and loosen the 15mm bolt on the bottom.
2) Twist the 2 halves so that they "step-up" and "extend".
(both halves of the mount have teeth on them, so if they're twisted in opposite directions, and then tightened by way of the long bolt going through the center, it can be used as an "adjustable" body mount.)
You can extend these types of body mounts approximately ½".
3) Tighten the bolt while being careful not to let the body mount slip.
One good thing about this mod, is that because you adjusted the body height, instead of the actual ride height, you don't have to get the front end aligned.
