air shocks

3 posts in this topic

hey guys Ihave a question for you. Ihave a 2006 mercury grand marquis I would like to put air shocks in it but can't seem to find anything. All I can find is the air bags and the dealership wants a fortune for some custom order parts thanks. If anyone has any ideas let me know thanks

What are you trying to achieve be adding these to the Marquis? Ride quality, raise a sagging read end or replace them with a non-working factory air ride system?

I assume this is for the rear only, correct?

Strutmasters Ultimate Ride Conversion Suspension System looks to be an option. Price is pretty good also.

I do not have a factory air ride system on the gm. When I put my boat on there is alot of sag. The factory setup seems to be less than par. I don't have a very big boat. Its a 73 14 foot lund and its 48 inches wide. I was thinking that the boat motor and trailer should be around 500 lbs or so. Yes its only for the rear. I do have coil springs on the rear end. I was looking into air lift system but was looking for all options. I will have to look into the strutmasters conversion kit thanks

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
