1988-1994 Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion Kit (FB14F)

If you're experiencing air suspension problems on a Lincoln Continental, now is the time to decide on whether to pay out the nose to keep the air ride going, or install a Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion Kit and be done with those problems forever! Most people say they want to "keep the car original", but there's something you should know before you sink one more dime into the factory air system. From the factory, this vehicle came with a 4 wheel air suspension system that would automatically load-level anytime the ignition was on and even up to an hour after the ignition was turned off. It also featured a little known adjustable dampening system that would automatically stiffen or loosen depending on speed, road undulation, and/or driver attitude. Just like any model that's been discontinued, parts get harder and harder to come by. By installing our Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion Kit, you'll never worry again if/when the suspension is going to let you down! Our kit comes with all the parts and hardware you'll need to quickly and safely convert this vehicle to coil springs. Converting this vehicle to coil springs DOES NOT require any cutting, drilling or welding.

COMMON PROBLEMS ON THE CONTINENTAL AND RECOMMENDED SOLUTIONS:

THE FRONT END IS DOWN OVERNIGHT
Don't worry, this is a problem an air suspension equipped car owner WILL encounter sooner or later if they own the vehicle long enough. As with most air suspension problems, they can be easily diagnosed and repaired without having to go to the dealer, if the owner is familiar with how the system works.
One of the most important things to remember about a air suspension equipped Ford/Lincoln, is that the system has a separate module or "brain". The module is what makes all the air suspension decisions.
This system is designed not to let any air in or out of the front or rear struts unless the solenoid on that strut has been opened by the module. These solenoids act as a gate for air to go in or out of the strut and no air should go through into the strut unless the solenoid has been opened by the module.
On Ford/Lincoln vehicles, the module will "go to sleep" an hour after the ignition is turned off, which means in essence, is disabling each and every solenoid in the system. After this hour has passed, the module won't try to make ANY adjustments until the ignition is turned on again.
With that being said, if the car lowers after this hour has passed, most likely you have leaking front air struts. We recommend performing a leak test. Don't worry, there is an easy way to do this test without even getting your hands dirty.
Keep in mind that because of the rolling lobe design of the air struts/springs, they will usually leak the worst while being driven. Because the system is automatic, it has probably been leaking for 6 months or more without you even knowing. This has already put a pretty good strain on an already old system. The sooner you fix the leak(s), the more money you will save.

SOLUTION:
Not Recommended: Replace Both Front Lincoln Continental Airbag.

Recommended: Install Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion and be done with the problem forever.

All 4 corners are down when I picked it up

The first thing is that the suspension switch was not turned off while the car was raised.
NOTE:
The module has the ability to make any adjustments it feels necessary for an hour after the ignition is turned off. This means raising OR venting.
When a Ford/Lincoln air suspension equipped vehicle is raised without turning the suspension switch off, the module doesn't know its on a rack, it thinks the car is really high. The module will instruct the compressor to vent the air out until the car is at normal height. Because the car is on a rack and the wheels are hanging, the sensors will never get the normal reading because no matter how much air is vented, the suspension won't lower. The module doesn't know any difference, so it vents until the 45 second time-out. After 45 seconds, it will turn the vents off and shut down the system.
If the vent solenoid and dryer have no restrictions, all the air in the struts/springs will have been vented out and the car will lower to the bump stops when the rack is lowered.
IF the system is in decent shape, the car "should" raise up to normal height. On an old system, it may require more than one ignition cycle, due to a 90 second compressor run time limit.
If you DO hear the compressor running but after several cycles but the car still won't raise up, you may have a leaking air strut/spring.
If you DO NOT hear the compressor running, check for power at the compressor. If you don't have power here, you may have a bad compressor relay.

Not Recommended: Replace ALL 4 Continental airbags. (rears no longer available)

WHAT IF YOUR CONTI DOESN'T HAVE A LEAK?…BUT THE "CHECK SUSPENSION" LIGHT STILL COMES ON
HELPFUL HINT
A problem in the Dampening system is usually a bad actuator or a seized needle-valve on top of the strut. One quick way to distinguish a problem between the actuator and the needle valve, is
1) Remove the 2 screws on top holding the actuator to the strut. Temporarily lift up and remove the actuator. Lay it aside for now.(keep it plugged in)
2) Use some needle-nose plyers to reach down in the small hole in the center of the strut and try to move the center piece. If it moves freely, it's o.k., if not, the strut needs to be replaced.
(On a budget? Try squirting some WD-40 down in the hole and work the valve back and forth many times. This may free it up for awhile)
3) If the strut needle is o.k., try driving the vehicle with the actuator in question still removed, if the light does not come on, the actuator is probably bad.
NOTE:
All actuators have a built-in circuit to tell the module what position the actuator is in. That’s how the module knows if the strut needle is in the correct position

SOLUTION:
Not Recommended: Replace ALL 4 Continental airbags. (rears no longer available) and actuators.
Recommended: Install Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion Kit and be done with the problem forever.



Front of My Continental Goes Down, While Driving Only
This is most likely a Front air strut leak, in it's first stage(only leaks while being driven). Keep in mind that the easiest thing an air strut/spring can do, is to sit. The hardest thing it can do is to be driven down the road. Driving it down the road will work the cracks on the fold of the rubber and expose any cracks. NOTE: If you stop the vehicle, turn the ignition off, then on again and it pumps back up.....IT IS the front Air Struts that are leaking.
SOLUTION:
Not Recommended: Replace Both Front Lincoln Continental Airbag.

Recommended: Install Lincoln Continental Air Suspension Conversion Kit and be done with the problem forever.



Rear Goes Down, While Driving Only
This is most likely a rear air strut leak, in it's first stage(only leaks while being driven). Keep in mind that the easiest thing an air strut/spring can do, is to sit. The hardest thing it can do is to be driven down the road. Driving it down the road will work the cracks on the fold of the rubber and expose any cracks. NOTE: If you stop the vehicle, turn the ignition off, then on again and it pumps back up.....IT IS the Rear Air Struts that are leaking.
IMPORTANT:
Before you do anything, be aware that all rear struts for these vehicles were discontinued long ago. There maybe some cheap so called "rebuilt" struts still available, but they DO NOT last long. Their lifespan is 2 years tops! With that in mind, the best thing to do, is to convert to coil springs. We have a good kit with instructions how to perform the conversion, as well as how to disable the check suspension message.
