    I have no idea on all the bushing prices. Been a while since I done most of mine. You could probably check eBay for a good seller that carries Energy Suspension bushings and get a decent deal. For obsolete bushings, a guy named Jay made them and sold them on here. I believe his username was something like Jay98LSC or something like that.

    Thanks I'll give it a shot, out of curiosity does motorcraft not make them anymore I've got 0 experience with suspension stuff and Google isn't showing anything.

    As far as I know, most all of them will be aftermarket, especially when searching for Mark VIII bushings. If I'm not mistaking, I believe some Thunderbird bushings will work and would likely be easier to get from Motorcraft. It's also been 8 years since I have seen this talked about on here, so, they might not be making them anymore.

    There are a series of LEDs under the shifter to make it light up. The Gen 1 also lights up but it only has one bulb under there.

    Thanks, i did spray soapy water looking for leaks on the bag. it was the first thing i looked for, as everyone here except one said it was the air bag. i sprayed the water a few times, but never saw any leaks. This and the fact that it didn't leak consistently, made me think its the o rings or solenoid. Now with the constant raise issue, it wasn't lowering over night in the cold the way it was earlier this year with the switch off at night.

    I am interested in selling my 1995 Mark VIII, if the price is right. I have owned it for 22 years, garage kept, all original. Riding on air, original paint, runs like a scared squirrel. Only the automatic headlights do not function, have to turn them on manually. Any advice on how to repair them? Thank y'all. 101,000 original miles!
