Lincoln Mark VIII
New Rear Air Spring

Because a failed Air Suspension part can easily damage other parts in the system, the key to keeping the repair cost down on your Air Suspension system and cut down on vehicle downtime, is to repair any problems as soon as they occur! A simple leaking $1 o-ring can easily damage a $600 Air Suspension Compressor.....which can even lead to a damaged solid state Air Suspension Compressor relay for your Lincoln Mark VIII.

Keep in mind that Ford & Lincoln Air Springs generally last 5-10 years, with a few more added if the vehicle is/was garage kept at sometime during its life. Is the rear of your Lincoln Mark VIII down in the morning? If it is, your Air Springs ARE leaking and need to be replaced. Procrastination will surely cost you more in the long run, as more & more already old parts, will be damaged from the heat of being overworked. Don't take a chance when you can get a new Mark VIII Air Spring for a fraction of what the dealer wants.


Purchase is for a single new 1993-1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Rear Air Spring, complete with seals to reseal your solenoid at no additional cost.

(Price is for a single air spring - Both sides are the same)

RECOMMENDED LEAK TEST OF AN AIR SPRING

Old Leaking Air Spring
By far, the easiest way to test for a leak in the air springs, is to allow the car to vent down to "curb height" after shutting off the engine and opening and closing the door.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THE CAR HAS LOWERED TO CURB HEIGHT PRIOR TO TURNING THE SUSPENSION SWITCH OFF, OR THE TEST WON'T BE ACCURATE!

Your goal is to get the vehicle to sit at the height it sat at most of it's life.
If nothing else, wait 5 minutes after you turn the ignition off...then turn the suspension switch off. The car should have vented by then.
After this, turn the suspension switch off and measure the height of the 4 corners of the car with a tape measure and write it down. Now drive the vehicle for "UP TO" a few days. If the vehicle has a leak, the car should go down after driving.
NOTE: Depending on the severity of the leak, it may take more than one day to leak down. This is the case more times than you would think.
By all means, if the car goes down after 10 minutes of driving, turn the switch back and resume your journey. You have answered your question.
