Question regarding rear suspension air bags on my 1998 Town Car.
I have a leak in one (or maybe both) air bags, however, I suspect only one. I had both replaced about 2 years ago. Does anyone know if the air system is a single, continuous loop that runs through both bags, or are the air systems independent of each other? So if one bag leaks, would I only lose a single side, or would the good one still leak air through the bad?
The reason I ask is that about a year ago, when I had the system jacked up to replace one of the rear wheel bearings, I heard a “pop” sound on that side when I lowered the car. (I had shut off the suspension switch before jacking, but I’m suspecting this was the one bag opening up.) Anyway, now it has to re-pump the suspension each time I start the car.
I have 2 known good bags from a 1997 Town Car that I use for parts and have the option to replace one or both, or just go ahead and retro-fit regular springs to the 1998. If the air system one continuous loop, then I can probably suspect I’ve only lost one bag and may just replace that one.
