Having it done at a shop, about $600 rear only, that is what I paid for the exact same thing on my Town Car

We don't need no stinkin' air...air?

If we could manufacture a superior elastomer that could last under varying conditions over time none of this would be into this whenever I'm asked to restore an old car....all the rubber parts have gone to hell~nothing can be done except replace them~...or in your case a springy-substitute~


OUCH! You can do a basic kit for $189+ shipping. It would ride better if you replaced the rear shocks, which is a little more, it all depends on your budget. Btw, I would seriously check the front coil springs, as they are really bad about breaking and even puncturing a tire! Suspension-Conversion-9702-p/9702contcv.htm
