1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC Start Up & Rev With Exhaust View - 103K
1998 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
This has a Intech 4.6L 32 Valve DOHC V8 making 290 HP while paired to a 4 Speed Auto. It's essentially a Cobra V8 & also the same engine from my 2002 Continental only in my car it's detuned & in FWD.
This model began in 1993 until the Final year made in 1998. The Mark is known to be the first Production Vehicle to offer HID ( High Intensity Discharge ) Headlamps.
The Marks biggest issue was with the 4 wheel Air Ride suspension which was prone to early failure & it is a costly repair. Many owners resorted to Coil Spring conversion but it really killed the Marks Smooth ride.
Lincoln Mark VIII Movie.avi
This is a short movie about my two Lincoln Mark VIII's. The red one is a 1996 base model and the white one is a 1997 LSC. The '96 is mine and the '97 is my wife's. They're both awesome. There's nothing like having "His n' Hers" Lincoln Mark VIII's. These are wonderful cars. They're sleek, beautiful, fast, luxurious, and just plain awesome. The Lincoln Mark VIII was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the outgoing Lincoln Mark VII. The VIII was a vast improvement over the VII that it replaced. The ancient 225hp 5.0L pushrod V-8 was replaced with a modern all aluminum DOHC 4.6L V-8 producing 280hp. Late in '95, the LSC returned with true dual Exhaust and 290hp from the 4.6L V-8. The VIII also replaced the VII's McPherson strut front suspension with a proper upper and lower control arm design with integrated air spring/shock absorber units. The old 4-link live axle out back was also upgraded to a fully independent setup with upper lateral links, lower H-arms, air springs and shocks. The 4-wheel disc brake system was also upgraded with larger rotors and better electronics. The VIII was also a much larger car than the VII giving it more interior and trunk space than the outgoing car. About the only caryover was the transmission. The VIII's tranny was essentially the same as the one used in the VII. Other than that, the VIII was a completely new car from the ground up.
Lincoln Mark VIII Doesn't Have Struts!!!
Hello all! I finally got hold of a Ford service manual and scanned a page from that manual that clearly states that the Lincoln Mark VIII does not have McPherson Struts in the front suspension. According to Ford Motor Company, the folks who designed and engineered the car, the Mark VIII has an "Air Spring & Shock Assembly" up front. I am completely baffled at the persistence with which people use the term "strut" to incorrectly describe the Mark VIII's front air shocks. There are many different types of suspension designs. In my experience during my short-lived career as a mechanic, I worked on just about every type of suspension known to man. Everything from the simplest straight axle with transverse leaf spring to struts, to control arms, to DeDion axles, to complicated multilink setups. Each design is different. They may share components, but the overall design varies. In the case of struts vs. control arms, there are several distinct differences between the types. In a strut design, there is no upper control arm. The strut is bolted directly to the spindle and acts as a damper, steering kingpin, and upper suspension locating link. Because the strut is bolted to the spindle, it turns with the steering, requiring a bearing cap on top of the spring so it doesn't scrape against the strut tower. In a UCA/LCA design, there is an upper control arm and the shock bolts to either the upper or lower control arm. In this design, the shock acts only as a damper, nothing else. There is a major difference between strut and control arm suspension designs. The Mark VIII does not have a strut-type suspension by any stretch of the imagination. That fact is clearly visible when the Mark's suspension is compared to more plebian strut designs. There's absolutely no ambiguity or vagueness. The differences are clearly visible to anyone with eyes. It can be (and has been) easily proven that Mark VIII's don't have McPherson struts, yet people still call them struts. It makes absolutely no sense at all. The two types of suspensions are so distinctly different, I don't understand why it's even an issue. And what's interesting to me is that any time a thread on this site starts talking about the differences between struts and control arms, when I clearly demonstrate the differences and prove beyond a shadow of doubt that the Mark VIII doesn't have struts, all activity on the thread just stops. I think the pro-strut folks are in denial. Oh well. They just can't admit that they're wrong I guess.
