MONROE - AIR RIDE CONVERSION KIT FOR 1988 - 1994 LINCOLN CONTINENTALS OFFERS EASY REPLACEMENT

LAS VEGAS, November 2, 1999 - As late model cars age, one of the greatest challenges for their owners is maintaining the vehicle in a cost-effective manner. But that job just got easier for Lincoln Continental owners thanks to the introduction of a new Monroe® air ride conversion kit from Tenneco Automotive.

The new system is designed to replace the air suspension used in 1988 to 1994 Lincoln Continentals. Using a design based on the strut system of the Ford Taurus, Monroe engineers developed a coil spring replacement for the air spring used in the original OEM suspension system. Combined with brackets built for the Lincoln Continental and application-specific valving, the retrofit kit is a direct replacement option.

This retrofit is designed to replace all four air struts and is fully engineered to be a complete conversion of the suspension structure. And since it's a mechanical system, the Monroe retrofit package will not interfere with the vehicle's electrical system.
