Not quite sure what you're getting at - can you elaborate a little? The Mark VIII had air suspension from the factory - any "conversion kit" for the Mark VIII is to eliminate the air suspension by converting it to use coil springs.

The MN12 is the opposite and uses coil springs from the factory. The front coil-over-shock assemblies (coilovers) are a direct bolt-in replacement on the Mark VIII; the rear springs will fit in the Mark VIII but an upper spring mount needs to be installed. I've also never run across a kit to convert an MN12 to air suspension - although there are air bags designed to sit inside the rear coils to supplement loading or help prevent squat on drag cars.
