How to install Rear Air Ride Conversion Coil springs for Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Grand Marquis.
Just did this on my '96 Lincoln Town Car. $88 for the coil springs, and a local mechanic charged me $80 for labor. Not bad at all. Rides great.
You can get new air bags two of them for $80.00 plus limousine air bags are now being sold for regular sedans with a support shaft down the middle for $126.00 each. I might do the 126'ers. I really would like to feel my 05 Ultimate LS Premium w/HPP package with standard coil springs though. The front has new KYB complete struts and God lord it rides like a dream.
how do you turn off the air suspension light?
7/6/16I just did this for my '93 Crown in 5 hours. I used your video and it was an excellent resource. I was a little frustrated about not having the drill to take apart the shock, but I compressed the springs and used a rope to keep it tight until it was in place.
Great job, guys! Thanks a load.
question: why would you not change the outboard shocks you just unhooked to put these in?you already did half of the job in unhooking the bottom and may need to take the tires off but since your already in here anyways, wouldn't it be logical to be done with it all at once. My 2009 police car has a similar setup and the outboard shocks are still important as often theirs nothing left to them on higher milage cars anyways.
if you are gonna buy springs for $100 And do it yourself, you might well get the air springs for $100 and do it your self
Yeah Each Airbag BRAND NEW of AMAZON.com costs 54$ Free shipping sooo….. why would anyone do this.
Help get the hesitation out of the acceleration in my 98 Marquis
Around November my crown Vic's air ride went and it was sagging. I bought the kit, and the day before I was going to put it in, I got rear ended.
Would it work for a 93 Lincoln Executive Series Town Car?
P.S. a 3/4 inch socket seems to work fine on the shock bolt
I did mine this morning pretty simple-the car has 235,000 miles on it, and the airbags still looked pretty good. I think the pump started to fail. Anyway apex springs $78.00 bucks. Way better than your ass dragging all around town. And the ride is just great-better than before
Will this work on a 2004 mercury grand marquis .
Someone needs to introduce you to a tractor trailer . . . they go several hundred thousand miles on air.
I did this on my 1999 town car but went with 4 new shocks at the same time and it now has a nice even stance on all 4 wheels and rides and handles great. now how do i turn off that pesky air suspension light on the dash.
Great video it help me out a whole lot on my 2003 lincoln town car
Whay about the air suspension light on the dash how do u turn it off
GREAT video, followed your hints and got the springs for my 2000 Mercury for under $80.00. I watched another video which showed how to remove the clip from the air spring compressor connection to twist clockwise to unplug. It would have been helpful to have a deep socket 18mm ready to remove the shock absorber nut, I didn't so I hammered an 11/16 deep socket which I had. I used a small bottle jack to force the axle down far enough to have the spring go in easily. I also removed the tires as I don't have a lift. The bottle jack also made it easy to align the shock absorber bolt. The first air gizmo came off easily, as it was flat. The second one was full so I cut it to release the pressure to remove. The left side took about an hour, but the second half, with the muffler, took only 20 minutes. I did each side separately to keep at least one rear tire on the ground. Again, thanks for the video, I bet the shop guys whip these out in 15 minutes each side.
I wonder if I need any I changed rear shocks on my 98 crown vic and it's still in the back. I have speakers in my trunk maybe way
