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 .
