hey man those wont fit in your linc ...inless you want to remove your back window lol......the biggest cylinder you can SAFELY put in the back would be a 14".....16s will fit but youll be very close to the window.......14s with powerballs youll need to remove the 6x9s from the rear deck

it depends on the coil and how the cyl is mounted, coil under vs coilover. coilover obviously gets you more space. and more coil obviously does the same.

yes but your still not going to fit a 24" cylinder in the back deck of any lincoln..now if it were a 12" to 24" telescopic yes...but a 24" case no......like i said 14s" is all youd want to run and still be safe...safe as in not hitting the back window...

a full stack of 4.5 tons is about 14-16" tall, that would leave 10" sticking up, well lets say up to 13-14 for coil compression. very doable. i had 16s in the rear of my mark 5, the rear deck was cutout, but they were there. oh ya, coil under also, so it was the full cyl.

either get 6x9 boxes and mount them somewhere in the car...or just move them on the sides of the cylingers...theres holes in the deck...sounds fine..thats what ive done with mine...no big deal...
