The 61-69 Lincoln Continental is an icon of America's automotive history. Each year has a unique look, but they're all just about the same under the skin, with a robust unibody construction, coil springs in the front, and leaf springs out back. While they ride nice and smooth in factory trim, they just sit too tall for our tastes!
We've teamed up with Choppin' Block to give you a 100% bolt-on solution to getting that 'slab on the ground. Up front, a set of tubular upper and lower control arms give you revised geometry to ride properly at lowered heights, and at the same time they'll give you new Moog ball joints and Daystar urethane bushings to replace your worn-out stock stuff.
Out back, the leaf springs get ditched in favor of a triangulated 4 link. The brackets for this link bolt directly into the factory pickup points on the subframe and axle, giving you a solid system that will ride and handle better than stock. New KYB shocks are included at all four corners, and of course all of the necessary mounting hardware comes with this package to save you trips to the store.
Our Stage 1 air management package is designed to be simple, reliable, and economical. Utilizing manual paddle valves to control the pressure at each corner, with a pair of dual needle pressure gauges to dial in your ride height, it doesn't get much simpler than this! Here's everything that's included:
- Choppin' Block BOLT-ON front and rear kits
- Slam Specialties SS-7 Airbags
- 4-path control panel with 2 dual needle pressure gauges
- 100' of 1/4" DOT-approved air line
- Complete brass fitting set
- TWO 5 gallon aluminum air tanks
- DUAL Viair 480C air compressors
- 200psi pressure switch
- Complete wiring kit
- Mounting hardware and installation guides
With this setup on your Continental, you can expect to lift or drop in about 6-8 seconds- while it's not designed to bounce your car around, it will let you easily set a ride height and get rolling, then drop to the ground when it's time to show off!
