hey all, I have a 97 continental with the semi active suspension, it has a blown spring and I haven't been able to find the replacement to save my life here.
Any help finding this thing would be great thanks.
I have been able to find the inner shock, but not even the whole assembly

You might also want to look at replacing the front springs. I bought custom made +20% (1 extra coil) ones from Coilsprings.com
they located the original Ford drawings and made to to spec. Better quality than the aftermarket stuff from China. The +20 made a huge difference in handling. The stiffer springs are also better for the shocks which are no longer made. I copied part of the quote.

1997 Lincoln Continental

Front - coil springs - +20% rate increase

Pricing: $ 258.60 pair

NOTE: what is the Front - OEM - coil spring part number, of the spring that originally came on your vehicle.

NOTE: the part number will resemble the following: Part# F7OC-5310-CA

Thank you and I await your response
