I just bought a 2007 Escalade EXT - 77k miles - OEM 22" wheels - seems to be a fairly standard setup.
After driving a bunch this past weekend, I started noticing a hollow sounding click or rattle in the right front. Happens at very low speeds - 20mph or less. After researching on here and finding several similar posts, I inspected the front shocks and noticed the noise coming from the right front shock. If I bounce on the right running board, it replicates the sound.
I then read some more and noticed most people recommend Arnott as a replacement shock setup. Before I move forward, I want to double check.
I've seen posts referring to front shocks, and most say buy this:
Mine look like the second link - orange in color. It makes me think I don't fully understand the difference between what Arnott is offering (which seems to have a bypass sensor of sorts) and what G&R is selling.
I've read that the Arnott stuff should be installed by a shop. What about the G&R option - since it appears the spring is already in place on that one. Is that an install a handy car guy could handle?
