Got a great deal on a 98’ crown vic, been working on fixing her up and wanna put onboard air since the rear has air suspension, and since I’m going to have onboard air I was thinking a set of shockers is in order! Need to find a spot to mount them. Haven’t taken any official measurements yet but I think I can get them in behind the grill! Here a some pics of my progress so far, before and after pics.
Yea, got the bar on CL for like $300, a lot cheaper than a new name brand bar! Yes, in PA volunteers can run solid blue, but we have the OK from our chief to run blue/white and blue/Amber. The police do not say anything.
Haven’t played with it too much just because it’s currently not convenient to air up and down. I was running it aired completely down and it was very bouncy and a lot of roll in sharp turns. I recently aired it up to about 20 psi and it doesn’t bounce near as much and it does turn better. Need to read up on specs to see what PSI I can safely put into the suspension. I’m hoping to add just two valves and a on-off-on switch to air up and down, along with a guage to monitor psi in th suspension.
Oh ok so it’s not a complete air suspension, just a sort of ride stiffener in addition to the springs and shocks. If you want to get rid of bounciness, you will probably have to replace the shocks because I’m guessing they are end of life. You could even go full retard and put air springs on all 4 corners, but that’s a big investment for a worn out car.
