Rear air suspension
I am leaning toward replacing the air bags with a coil spring conversion kit. My concern is
the ride. Will the car ride rougher with the coil springs? I am going to sell the car after it's
fixed. Should I just replace the bags or go with the coil springs?
I'm no mechanic, but you don't need one to answer this. Always replace with stock parts-unless you are going to keep it at least as long as the replacement part will last!! No one wants to buy someone's back yard fix-it Idea. And, yes the car will ride rougher without the airbags.
we replaced our airbag system with a conversion kit on our 92 exec series and it rides as great as the original. buy the correct kit from a reputable outlet like strut masters and have it installed by a local shop or do it yourself.
If the vehicle is a car then do to replace it with shocks and springs it will make the car run as if it were suddenly a tank. Not a Lincoln If it is a truck style then it wont change much in how it rides. But the air suspension in the car is why it runs like it is sitting on a cloud.
I had the air bags replaced in my 2003 Lincoln town car with a coil spring conversion kit. The ride is too hard. I am considering reverting to air bags.
I replaced my air suspension in my 2002 Town Car in 2015 and it is a different ride. I wouldn't say it is rough but it rides more like a Cadillac DeVille than a Lincoln now.
