How do they do this? The Taurus rides like this. It's of course not as bad
a hard riding Toyota, but it's pretty bad though. What's different on the
Lincoln or Mercury on the suspensions? It's like the springs are too short
on the Taurus? I was just thinking it was something to do with the light
weight cars these days.
: The only thing that will work for the poor ride is buy a Mercury
: Marquise or Lincoln.
: The Ford is cheap. They make sure you *feel* it.
I think it's funny that you believe there is actually a difference between the
Crown Vic and Mercury Marquis (no e at the end).
Other than price and extremely slight styling differences, they are the same
vehicle that can be optioned out with the *exact* same suspensions.
I think it's funny,*you* think they're the same. Then a door should fit
one to the other, ~ they don't. A front fender should also fit...~they
A rear suspension arm should fit...~they don't...what is it you *think* is
In each case the parts are 3" different in legnth.
Guess what...The lincoln's parts don't fit either car.
It's not the same legnth to the folcrum points on the under carriage levers.
The Ford's are shorter. Making it cheeper, and ride harder.
Depends on the year - all 1979-2005 will interchange betweem C/V & G/M,
except 1992-1997 rear doors...
A front fender should also fit...~they
1979 to 1991 will...
1979 to 1997 are all the same, even... except some police apps...
no, they're not...
Quite possible - all different sheet metal, extended chassis, but still
numerous interchangeable parts...
Ford & Mercury are identical underneath - year-for-year.
The Lincoln may have a different arm, as it is an extended platform
Panther, but with regard to the C/V & G/M, every 1979 to 1997 uses
virtually the same parts in the rear - except for some police
On the doors & fenders... these twins had different rooflines & sheet
metal from 92-94 & 95-97(windshields & front doors same, rear doors
different), same doors & fenders 1979 to 1991. Same doors 1998 to
current... fenders are actually different from 1992 to current...
There are exceptions - the Heavy Duty Commercial LWB (P70) C/V - Longer
doors... but rare to find by non-commercial users...
Hoods - same from 1998 to current...
They're the same car. It would be a stretch to say they have different
spring rates, even... although this is much more likely than your
"folcrum points on the under carriage levers" theory.
don't know where you got your info from, but the crown vic and the grand
marquis are the same thing I just got done stripping a totaled vic for parts
for a theft recovery stripped marquis, and so far have used the doors,
trunk, hood, and seats, all of these are a perfect fit.
yup, must be, because i am keeping the motor, trans , rear, front end, and
wireing harness also. it is strange how some people think they are so smart,
and others are so stupid. the crown vice and grand marquis use the same
parts, and to prove it, just look at the part numbers on the 2 "completely
different cars" they are the same, and you can get parts for both cars at
either a ford, or mercury dealer.
I am convinced tires can make a big difference in ride. Overinflation OR
underinflation cause differences in the ride of my '95 CV. My car has air
springs but the difference is there when the tires are wrong.
Has it always been this way? Have you put new tires on? The CV should ride
as well as a Marquis... of course, if it is a police package, all bets are
