    Rear Struts harsh bounce


    Today I felt a harsh dip in my back driver side tire. I believe the struts in the back are starting to go. On smooth roads its fine and shimmy side to side is fine. Just a harsh dip when I hit a bump.

    So what kinda of money and I paying for this kind of issue?

    Assuming you do not have the performance (electronic) suspension, the fix is relatively cheap, but the typical failure mode of the rear air shocks is to lose oil and get mushy, not firm up like you are seeing. At any rate. most guys use the Monroe replacements, MA822. I have used them on 2 Devilles and was happy with them. Same part number should work for your DTS.
