    First time Mark VIII Owner - Frame Rust

    OMG. From the looks of it, check the rear quarter and under the tail light to see if the sheet metal is still straight or kinked. Check rear IRS to see if it shifted. From the photos it looks like its still straight. Might need a new rear bumper and new side tail light. Rear bumper...

    I haven't had mine rebuilt, maybe down the road ways I'll get into it. Although Powertrain Products which is a brand new AX4N trans in my case would be the way to go. It also comes with upgraded torque converter and shift kit. I believe the prices are inline with what it would cost. Some...

    First time Mark VIII Owner - Frame Rust

    I feel you on the car. It is a shame for it to be a parts car. I'll keep my eyes open for a Blk/Blk LSC too for you.

    My New Old Mark

    I would make sure the oil and filter are changed, along with brake fluid and coolant. Rear diff fluid service too. Check brakes out, rotors, pads, any sticky calipers ect. Get new tires if they seem to have a shimmy or have abnormal wear, cracking. Electronics, windows go up and down...

    First time Mark VIII Owner - Frame Rust

    Unibodies are hard to fix especially with replacing rotted metal with new. On Youtube they have vids on dropping the rear IRS and front subframe and putting that into another Mark or other vehicle which would get these parts. I haven't seen a body swap vid yet for a Mark. Correct these don't...

    Replacing front air springs on a 96 Lincoln Continental?

    I am lost myself with how I can provide any answers or help. I know that '95-'96 Model years had only front air shocks and rears too. In '97 they went to rear air shocks only. However I had come across this video of Lou Santiago changing out the air shocks on a '95-'96 Conti. Maybe this...

    Very cool ride! That is in great shape. Glad everything is working out well for your car. You don't see to many Mark VI's running around to much these days. It's cool to see one. A definite classic. I don't know what you plan on using on the leather to clean and condition it, I use...

    1G6KY529XSU808011 :Found the vin of my parents old STS

    That's awesome. Keep those parts, especially since its sentimental. The caps are probably worth a pretty penny. Especially if someone is restoring or updating and older STS of that vintage. Very cool story, sorry to hear about the car's fate.

    '99 Lincoln Continental Refurbishment

    Had an interesting discussion with a fellow car enthusiast, over the weekend. I explained how I wanted to get polished/chrome wheels for the Conti, but for factory oem bolt pattern is very hard to find in a 16 x 7. He replied why don't you think about getting your OEM wheels stripped down, and...

    98 LSC Stolen

    I am very ticked off too that this happened to your Mark VIII. I've seen it in your photos you've posted. I Hope that moron stays in jail forever. I had researched a new harness for your Mark VIII for the rear view mirror, this is all I could come up with. Make sure it is compatible and...

    LS Withdrawals

    I understand the loneliness without the car in your possession. It is awesome that Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum has your car on display. Very low production number indeed. :cool: I've heard about the Gilmore meet this year, in Continental Comments, but unfortunately I can't make it...
