    Yes, another air suspension question. Sorry.

    Anyways, its a 95 Conti. The compressor keeps turning on and off even when the car is off. Like, in the middle of the night it will just turn on. Freaked me out the first time i heard it one night when i was in the garage. I know this means that at least one bag is leaking and the compressor is coming on at all times to try to keep the bags pumped up. It started happening so much that i just finally turned the air suspension off in the trunk so the compressor wouldn't burn up. The car does not have the "lowrider" effect..........yet. The car sits normal even with the compressor off for days and days. However, when i do turn the compressor back on the front sits normal but the back gets like crazy high. Oh yeah, last thing.........the car rides like crap with the air turned on and off. Very different from when first purchased. :mad:

    Ok, so thats the background. What does everybody think? Is just leaky bags? If so, is there anyway i could diagnose which ones? I've been thinking of the coil conversion because if i replace one bag then 6 months later another one will go and etc.

    I looked on Strutmasters website. I noticed the Mark VIII had a lowering kit version. I would want that for the Conti but i dont think Strutmasters makes that.

    Strutmasters, what do u think of all this? If i bought the coil conversion, is install free?

    It sounds to me like you have problems with bad struts. You probably have a leak in the bags as well. We have a conversion kit for the 95-96 continentals that converts them to a passive strut and coil spring. This eliminates the VERY expensive electronic struts that you have on your vehicle and makes it comparable to the newer model continental suspension systems. The kit is $545(Not Shipped), we can lower it for if you so desire. The installation is $50 dollars per wheel. If you have any further questions please feel free to post here, or call us toll free at 866-597-2397 to set up an appointment for the install.

    Thanks,
    Strutmasters Team
