How to "soften" the ride in my Lincoln Continental

10

Asked by Tig2Dan Jun 07, 2016 at 05:50 PM about the 1997 Lincoln Continental FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently replaced the rear "air ride" suspension on my 1997 Lincoln
Continental with standard type shocks & springs. I didn't expect as soft a ride
but it now rides pretty rough in comparison. Is there any way to "soften" the
ride, short of going back to the air suspension, which, to me, is prohibitively
expensive ? Thanks.

You only stated standard type shocks and springs but you didn't state what kind of standard shocks, there are many kinds of standard shocks, single action, dual action, auto adjust, then there are the springs, did you go stock load range, heavy duty or tow package.

Thanks for your answer.I don't know which types were used, and the guy who installed them is not available. Besides , I had a very unpleasant experience with him and I wouldn't ask him anyway. I would assume he used the least expensive ones available (?). Sorry, that's all I can tell you.

Then I suggest you find another shop, one with good reviews in your area if you don't have another, they can look at it and most likely figure out what he used and possibly when they find out what was used they may have another option to give you a better ride. HTH
