The shocks on the Town car are actually regular shocks front and rear and are separate from the air springs. They are fairly inexpensive. The rear has air springs rather than mechanical steel springs. Do not mess with them if they are working. Replacement air springs can be purchased from for around $100 each and they will last for another 10 years. If you can change spark plugs you can change an air spring. Arnott gives detailed instructions. Don't be afraid of the air suspension, it is much superior over the steel springs.

Does a 1999 park ave have air shocks or struts?

They have air shocks in the back that are used for ride height control. This is not the same as an "air spring" system. They have regular rear springs and the air bladders in the shock are only pumped up when there is significant load in the rear, to prevent the rear end from sagging. This is a very simple and reliable system. Monroe makes great factory replacement rear air shocks and they are cheap too.
