Lincoln Mark VIII Doesn't Have Struts!!!
Hello all! I finally got hold of a Ford service manual and scanned a page
from that manual that clearly states that the Lincoln Mark VIII does not
have McPherson Struts in the front suspension. According to Ford Motor
Company, the folks who designed and engineered the car, the Mark VIII has
an "Air Spring & Shock Assembly" up front. I am completely baffled at the
persistence with which people use the term "strut" to incorrectly describe
the Mark VIII's front air shocks. There are many different types of
suspension designs. In my experience during my short-lived career as a
mechanic, I worked on just about every type of suspension known to man.
Everything from the simplest straight axle with transverse leaf spring to
struts, to control arms, to DeDion axles, to complicated multilink setups.
Each design is different. They may share components, but the overall design
varies. In the case of struts vs. control arms, there are several distinct
differences between the types. In a strut design, there is no upper control
arm. The strut is bolted directly to the spindle and acts as a damper,
steering kingpin, and upper suspension locating link. Because the strut is
bolted to the spindle, it turns with the steering, requiring a bearing cap
on top of the spring so it doesn't scrape against the strut tower. In a
UCA/LCA design, there is an upper control arm and the shock bolts to either
the upper or lower control arm. In this design, the shock acts only as a
damper, nothing else. There is a major difference between strut and control
arm suspension designs. The Mark VIII does not have a strut-type suspension
by any stretch of the imagination. That fact is clearly visible when the
Mark's suspension is compared to more plebian strut designs. There's
absolutely no ambiguity or vagueness. The differences are clearly visible
to anyone with eyes. It can be (and has been) easily proven that Mark
VIII's don't have McPherson struts, yet people still call them struts. It
makes absolutely no sense at all. The two types of suspensions are so
distinctly different, I don't understand why it's even an issue. And what's
interesting to me is that any time a thread on this site starts talking
about the differences between struts and control arms, when I clearly
demonstrate the differences and prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the
Mark VIII doesn't have struts, all activity on the thread just stops. I
think the pro-strut folks are in denial. Oh well. They just can't admit
that they're wrong I guess.
Lincoln Mark VIII Fast Bag Setup
"SET-UP: 6 valves - 4 SMCs for fill and two small Snap Tite (3/32" orifice)
valves for dump.
The front and rear were set up to raise for one second each. The rear goes
way too high if not slowed down. The front goes too high as well. The car
was also timed to dump for six seconds. The second portion of this video
shows the whole car raising off a one-second pulse. The rear still was a
bit fast and goes a little high. I installed a ball vavlve on each bag to
slow it down. Dump was set for three seconds."
Found this somewhere, this isn't my car!

finally able to slowly start getting back into the groove of things. I
will also begin working on a new update video fairly soon to let you all

1994 Lincoln Mark VIII - Aftermarket Airstruts Fastbag - RezMax Rekordz Ryde
I know about the AUDIO DELAY...sorry. I didn't check the audio sync first
before exporting and uploading from Adobe Premiere. I have no idea why it
happened but too busy to fix it.
These air struts were bought used from Craigslist for $200. I paid $200 for
welding both struts. Cut the stock air manifold from the stock struts to
act as a strut adapter plate. The struts are from Airbagit.com and were for
a 2001 acura. I had to modify them a lot to make them work on my 1994
Lincoln Mark VIII. Originally I modified the stock Air Struts to handle
1/2" Air hoses. The were very slow and were dry rotted. It was time for a
replacement so I decided to upgrade to bags meant for fast inflation.

The History of Lincoln
Henry Leland, a former manager of the Cadillac division of General Motors,
and his son, Wilfred Leland, formed the Lincoln Motor Company in August,
1917. Leland named the new company after Abraham Lincoln, his hero and for
whom he cast a vote in 1864. Lincoln's first source of revenue came from
assembling Liberty aircraft engines, using cylinders supplied by Ford Motor
Company, to fulfill World War I government contracts.
After the war, the Lincoln factories were retooled to manufacture luxury
automobiles. Ford Motor Company purchased the Lincoln Motor Company in
1922, but Lincoln continued to operate as a somewhat separate company from
Ford through early 1940. On April 30, 1940 the Lincoln Motor Company became
the Lincoln Division of Ford Motor Company
At the direction of Henry's son Edsel, in 1923 several body styles were
introduced, that included two- and three-window, four-door sedans and a
phaeton that accommodated four passengers. They also offered a
two-passenger roadster and a seven-passenger touring sedan and limousine,
which was sold for $5,200. A sedan, limo, cabriolet and town car were also
offered by coachbuilders Fleetwood, Derham and Dietrich, and a second
cabriolet was offered by coachbuilder Brunn.
As the brand grew it developed several memorable vehicles, the Zephyr, the
Continental Mark II, the Lincoln Continental and recently the ubiquitous
