Lincoln Continental 1997-2002, OE Replacement Air Suspension by Arnott®. Arnott offers completely new and rebuilt air suspension struts, shocks, and springs designed to match the fine tolerances of original equipment. New Arnott parts are built using components from many of the same name brand companies such as Goodyear, Continental, Wabco, and others that vehicle manufacturers used originally. Arnott also takes the stigma out of the word “reconditioned” by starting with core parts purchased directly from vehicle manufacturers, then replacing all wear components with new ones built to original specifications - giving you an OEM level of fit, performance, and reliability at a fraction of dealer prices.
- Air springs, struts, and shocks are sold individually (not as a set) for front and rear applications
- Arnott sources many components from the same name brand companies that vehicle manufacturers used to build original OEM parts with
- Restore full effectiveness and comfort of your air suspension ride
- Eliminate the sag in ride height that results from worn, leaking air suspension components
- Sized and shaped with precise original equipment dimensions for easy bolt-on installation that does not require modification
- Offers original equipment performance at a far lower price compared to manufacturer OEM equipment prices
- Arnott offers a limited lifetime warranty for North American customers on air springs, struts, and shocks (orders outside of North America come with a 2-year warranty). Warranties on other components may vary
If the ride height on your air suspension-equipped vehicle sags in the corners overnight or during driving, faulty or worn air springs, struts, or shocks are most likely the issue. Air spring assemblies contain a flexible air bladder made of a multi-layer elastomer material that is reinforced by nylon cords. The inner layer is designed to be airtight, but over time as the bladder stretches to absorb forces within the air spring, cracks form as rubber naturally ages and dries out. Should you find yourself in the predicament of having to replace front air shocks or struts, Arnott offers completely new units that are rigorously designed and built to the fine OEM tolerances that your vehicle’s own manufacturer used. Plus, new Arnott parts are built using components from many of the same name brand companies such as Goodyear, Continental, Wabco, and others that your vehicle manufacturer used originally. Everything is sized and shaped precisely to original equipment dimensions, so these replacements are easy to bolt on without modification.
For even greater values, Arnott offers remanufactured air shocks, struts, and shocks that are made from cores purchased directly from vehicle manufacturers. After inspection of metal framework, all wear parts and parts that may have failed are then replaced. As with all-new springs, remanufactured ones are assembled with new parts sourced from brand name suppliers that your vehicle manufacturer may have used originally.
While it’s easy to assume the higher cost of “factory” parts you’ll pay a dealer reflects a much higher level of quality, that is not always the case. What it most often does reflect is the fact that dealerships mark up their parts 100 percent to cover their own high overhead costs of modernized buildings as well as the costs to heat, cool, and staff those modern all-glass structures. Because Arnott uses only high-quality components and seeks to improve internal parts which are known weak spots of factory designs, you’ll actually get equal (if not superior) quality air suspension items for a fraction of the cost. Arnott backs their air springs, shocks, and struts with a limited lifetime warranty for North American customers, and a 2-year warranty on orders outside of North America.
Founded in Florida in 1989, Arnott Incorporated began with self-taught knowledge of air springs by a father and son team who performed repairs on air suspension systems on vehicles so equipped across their home state of Florida. Word of the Arnott’s mechanical expertise on air springs spread to a growing customer base eager to hire them, inspiring them to design and produce their own equipment, beginning in 1994. Since then, Arnott has continued to specialize in high quality components for air suspension components only, and faithfully builds all parts they sell to equal or greater levels of quality and durability than manufacturers do – matching or improving on the materials, design, and thickness of seals to name just a few things. Cost savings and great values come not from cheaper construction, lack of product testing, or cut-rate labor from questionable locations, but from the absence of markup that new car dealers and manufacturers subject customers to. Arnott proudly manufacturers and re-manufactures air springs and other suspension kits in the United States..
