    Cheap fix for broken strut on escalade and ??? Ride sensor control

    I've got lots of good info here so time to payback a little. So my "service ride control" comes on; dealer wants 429$ for new sending unit as the 5" long strut arm on the unit has broken the plastic pivot point. Knowing I had seen something like this before my search began. EASY......Hobby Town guy says that looks like 1/5 scale......YEP..........so got this item on eBay to replace the strut arm ............

    HPI Baja 5b SS *TIE RODS & ENDS* Balls Turnbuckle Arms


    as seen on the left of this item.............

    For $20 and 30 min it's fixed, best of all I have another strut if another breaks. Hope this helps some others who have, or will have the same problem. COME on GM, WTF you should sell that arm as a replacement part.

    Wow you are the first person who has use hobby car parts(Hpi is the best I know from experience as I own two of they're models) to fix they're truck(FYI gm makes money on the whole sensor that is why you can buy the arm separately
