2000 Lincoln Town Car Air Suspension

So I don't have much knowledge about cars but I have a Lincoln 2000 town car. I had bought it from my dealership a year ago with 119000 miles. Now the car has 138000 miles on it. For a few weeks the car air suspension would work for a few seconds every couple of minutes and then shut off and start again. Before it only used to buzz every few minutes and stop. Lately it buzzed when the car was not even on or started. Yesterday morning I drove to work and heard the air suspension go off trying to lift the back of the car like it normally would, but the noise was more than a buz, more rough. After I got off work and started the car i noticed it was stilll all the way down and not lifting up from the back. I didn't hear the compressor go off. I turned the air suspension switch off and on but still nothing. I have not heard it at all and it is still sitting on the ground. I just want to get an idea of what's going on so no one would rip me off. Someone told me it might be the air compressor we need to replace and another person told me the whole air system might need to be replaced to standard. I need to do it the cheapest and correct way possible!

    You might want to check out ARNOTT Air Suspension Products. They sell replacement air springs as well as a conversion kit for your Lincoln to eliminate the rear air suspension completely. They might also be able to give you some diagnostic hints.

    The rear suspension air bags need to be replaced. You can get a set (2 air bags) for about $300.00. You may be able to get a new set on on E-Bay for less then that. A local shop should be able to install them for about $300.00 or less. If you have a mechanic friend who has never changed them out, they can go to U Tube to see how it is done. No special tools are required. The air pump for the suspension system will burn-out because of the leaking air bags.
