    I just went through the same thing on my wife's 2008 Escalade Platinum with 110k miles. I don't drive it much, but we went a small road trip, and it beat me up! Once we got home, I inspected the front shocks. Both were wet, so I ordered some OE shocks from rockauto. Once I got to installing them, I found the passenger one was the really bad one, driver's was seeping. After replacement, it rode much better. Feels a little rough from the rear, and the rear shocks look a little wet like oil leaking from them. I'm probably gonna use the arnotts for the rear since they are about $120 cheaper for the pair.

    My Escalade with 1500 miles on it is still riding likes its on 4 steel posts. No codes appearing on the DIC. Tire pressures are at 35psi. Going back to the dealer for other issues this Thursday and I will have them check out the MRC.

    Re: Riding rough

    I got so frustrated I tried a trick we used to use when our 1980's/90's vehicles had electric/electronic hiccups. I pulled the positive battery cable off for an hour or so, but usually just a few minutes works just to see if it would possibly work. WORKED!! Stereo now works - all the stereo/nav buttons work - phone now works - suspension is much better, softer ride but the vibration is still there.

    So its now 3 hours later and the radio does not work, phone out, suspension harder than a rock! Vibrations are back to where they were previously, probably because the suspension tightened up again.

    Pulled the battery cable for the second time and everything is working again radio, buttons, phone button, suspension softened up.

    No codes showing on the DIC.

    Uhm............inquiring minds want to know!
