    Need help on identifying my suspension on my 04 CTS!

    Ok so I have a 04 CTS with about 70k miles and my rear shock gave out. I have the sport package on it and I am having a hard time figuring out if its an FE1, FE3 or FE4. Can someone help?? I called the Cadillac dealership and they said they didn't know anything about any code (total BS)

    Check under the lid for your spare tire .
    Should be a bunch of codes on a sticker there .
    One will be your suspension code .

    or call any GM dealer and have their parts people run your VIN to see what suspension options you have (or run it yourself on compnine or some other vin->rpo code website)

    Run the VIN here;

    http://www.compnine.com/vid.php

    It will list ALL of your vehicle's RPO codes...

    Edit: Looks like they stopped doing it for free again...sorry I tried.

    Thanks guys, found out I have an FE3 after much work. I live in the Chicago land area and the cheapest price I was able to get was $408 each, by any chance would anyone know where to find them cheaper?

    The rear shocks are the spendy ones as those are the Nivomat self adjustable ones, Rippy can give you a pretty good price I am sure...
