Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.
Did you re-calibrate the air ride system after replacing the air spring?
Are there any trouble codes storing?
I see, thanks. Although the system should be vented and then filled with a scan tool when working on the air suspension, and the pinpoint tests are rather lengthy before we get into all of that you may want to try this.
With the rear of the vehicle lifted up to just at the top of the suspension travel, turn the key on, (with the air ride switch on of course) and lower the jack a little at a time. That will allow the rear air springs to air up evenly and slowly so there are no problems.
See if that helps and let me know, thanks
True, it should only take a few minutes to inflate to the proper ride height. I always allow them to fill slowly though so there is less strain on the bags and I have seen some that wouldn't go up from the lowest point of travel after an air spring was installed.
Do the sensors read the correct height on a scan tool for the rear and front suspension?
I see, thanks. I thought that I was the only one that worked on my ex-wife's car, God bless you.
That is why I always try to fill the bags slowly by letting it down, (with the key on) in increments.
The only other way is to go through the calibration with a scan tool, thanks.
You should be able to lift the frame up some and leave the a frame(s) on the jack stands. Just be sure that the battery is fully charged, or that it doesn't go dead, I have done that a time or two.
Actually they say to turn the key on and shift to drive and then back to park, it would be just as good to start it up and go through the gears and back to park, thanks
