Lincoln Mark VIII Suspension - Normal Day with Fastbag
An example of a normal day with a fastbag conversion system. I raise the
car with the alarm button, drive off and return. As I arrive, I drop the
car back down to the ground. I then get out and do it all over again from
my transmitter while I grab a closer angle.

Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a
1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the
'97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n'
Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek,
beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII
was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII.
The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient
225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L
V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII
also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper
upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock
absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a
fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs
and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger
rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the
VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About
the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially
the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a
completely new car from the ground up.
1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Seafoam Treatment
I seafoamed my 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII today. I haven't done it in a while
and it shows. There was a lot of smoke this time. The white '97 Mark VIII
LSC next to it is much cleaner. The last time I seafoamed it, there was
very little smoke. According to the descriptions on the can, Seafoam is
supposed to break up carbon deposits and clean the induction system,
valves, tops of pistons, etc. It is also supposed to get rid of the rotten
egg smell associated with clogged catalytic converters. Fortunately, my
cats are still in pretty good shape. I don't know if Seafoam really works,
but I know my engine runs smoother after a treatment. And it sure is fun to
Note: Eventually, I'm going to make a more detailed step-by-step video with
someone else holding the camera. This was obviously done very quickly. Next
time, I plan to use 3 bottles. One for the crankcase, one for the intake,
and one for the gas tank. Now, you've got to remember to change your oil
IMMEDIATELY after seafoaming your crankcase. Or else the stuff will destroy
your seals and gaskets. Running it through the oil is like high performance
Motor Flush. It cleans the crap outta your engine block.

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 Town Car (99') Air Ride Suspension
This is a properly working air-ride suspension on a 1999 Lincoln Town Car
after unloading groceries from Sam's Club ;-) I didn't close the driver's
door on purpose so that I could show how it works. Some people are afraid
of the Lincoln Town Car rear air suspension, but in all reality, they are
relatively simple to repair and really not all that expensive. The rear
airbags are only held in place by a small metal clip at the top, pull the
metal clip-push up at the bottom to release the metal ring from the
axle-gently pull and rotate the top until you can see the air line and
solenoid-gently twist the solenoid until it stops, then pull it out of the
leaking airbag and just reverse the procedure to re-install a new bag.
SIMPLE ! ! ! Nothing rides or drives like a Lincoln Town Car, I've had my
share of Cadillacs, believe me- you do not want to replace the air leveling
shocks on a Cadillac, been there and done that .
