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 .

Featuring a standard V8 engine, body-on-frame design, rear-wheel drive and large exterior and interior dimensions, the Town Car was based on the Ford Panther platform. This gave it powertrain and suspension commonality with the Mercury Grand Marquis and the Ford LTD Crown Victoria (later the Crown Victoria). This design made them durable even in the rough conditions taxi and livery cars are subjected to, and easy and cheap to repair when they did suffer damage. Town Cars are typically operated in commercial service for at least 400,000 miles.
Its large dimensions made it the largest car in production in North America. From 1997 to 2011, the Town Car was the longest car (but not the heaviest) built in the Western Hemisphere, measuring nearly 18 feet (5.49 m) in length for a standard Town Car and 18.5 feet (5.64 m) for an L Edition.[4
Lincoln is also believed to be preparing a true Town Car successor on a rear-wheel drive platform to rival the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-series
The Town Car underwent a minor exterior facelift for the 1995 model year. Changes to the exterior included smaller, clear headlights as well as additional running lights in the rear. Larger door mirrors were body-colored (formerly chrome), and were moved slightly forward on the door itself. Updated bumpers front and rear, new body side moldings, and the deletion of the small fixed window in the rear doors completed the exterior changes. The antenna was removed from the outside of the car and integrated into the rear window.
1995 also saw the introduction of a new steering wheel, which was used in all Panther-based sedans from 1998 to 2004. In addition to the cruise control buttons,.
Also introduced in 1995 was a new digital dash layout (replacing the unit used since 1993) that featured a more italicized look to the readouts, while the exterior temperature readout moved from the dash cluster to the climate control panel. A "miles to go" trip computer feature was added. Dual power recliners with lumbar support—as well as a three-position driver's seat and mirror memory function became standard (formerly optional) on Signature Series which could be assigned to the keyless entry remotes as well as the up to four personal keyless entry codes. Heated seats were a new option, and door panel switches now featured (slight) illumination from a lamp located below the interior door handle. Power door lock switches were back-lit, and were mounted high up on the driver and passenger door panels. The fuel door release (previously mounted in the center dash panel) and trunk release button moved from inside the glove compartment to the lower driver's side door panel. Similar to the previous year, Signature and Cartier models featured dual clamshell storage armrests up front with cassette storage, coin holder, and an optional Cell phone. The 1997 Cartier models held dual cup holders in the rear center armrest, and offered lighted vanity mirrors in the headliner for the two outboard rear seating positions.
With the demise of the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham after 1996, the Town Car became the last of its kind: the last American full-size, rear-wheel drive luxury car. The demise of the Fleetwood also made the Town Car the largest mass-produced car available in North America.

1999 Lincoln Navigator Rear Suspension Problem
Right Rear Suspension Air Bag is leaking air www.blvdautorepair.com
Questions given to us about this youtube video:
1) Can we just install regular rear suspension springs instead?
The problem with putting springs versus bags, is that if you load the back of the SUV with very heavy stuff, the springs will not compensate for the additional heavy load whereas the OEM air bags do. The SUV air suspension bag was designed for added weight load especially with towing in mind, and you are in a sense reengineering something that was never intended to happen because the load characteristics of springs versus bags is simply not the same when the SUV is put under very weight conditions. If it were the same the SUV would have come with regular rear suspension springs to begin with.
What will happen with rear suspension springs, is that, the back end of the car will drop (almost to the floor) when you tow something heavy, or when you put people in the SUV and load it to full capacity. The SUV will look like a lowrider because the rear suspension springs installed are not designed for load on this vehicle.
The ride of the vehicle will be comprimised and it wont be safe to drive at full capacity load or towing conditions.

They seem a bit loud however in person they are actually extremely quiet and can barely be heard above the normal idle of the car.

1990 lincoln town car coil spring conversion
I got the springs from a crown vic and they fit perfectly. for those who want to do something like this heres the direction.
1. turn off the air suspension. switch is in the trunk.
2. jack up the car and set it on jack stands and remove the wheels.
3. disconnect electrical connection on the silenoid of the air spring.
4. disconnect the air line on the silenoid.
5. turn the silenoid counterclockwise (or clockwise I forgot)and pull outwards
(you should hear the air in the spring escape) turn it again counterclockwise
(or clockwise) and pull it completely out.
6. use a small pry tool (or in my case a big flat-head screw driver to pull the metal clip on the top of spring. then place the tool under the bottom part of the spring and pry on it til it becomes free from the clip of the axle seat.
7. use a jack to support the axle. remove nut of the bottom of the shock
absorber and sway bar. let it hang freely. lower the axle for access for the spring.
8. install the spring w/ rubber inserts
(or not didn't do it in vid) on axle seat. jack up axle to reinstall shock and sway bar.
9. reinstall shock absorber nut and torque to 70 ft. lb. reinstall sway bar nut.
10. put on wheels and tires. torque lugs to spec. set the car on the ground and you're done
direction for install are for left and right side of the car. if you're not sure about doing this yourself, I recommend you take to a professional who knows about suspension conversion. the conversion can be for 90 to current town cars, GMQs or Crown vics. strutmasters have kits better suited for the year and make of those cars
