:confused: I am planning to change the shock absorbers, they seem not to function well, and I would like to know what is the difference between the shocks GM provides the zw7, z71, and the z55 and could I install any of them on the Escalade, and if there are other providers of better shocks what would you recommend for a 2007 Escalade?

thanks
best regards

I'm going to suggest you to go to arnottindustries.com (sp?)

You can either choose from remanned stock shocks or with a bilstein shock...

I would go with the bilstein since they make some high end performance stuff but I think from prior experience on any other car, the bilsteins will ride harder but more controlled (think sedan vs. sports car)

Oh yeah, if you get shocks from the dealer for the caddy, you will be looking anywhere from 600-750 a piece!

Are we able to use Bilsteins with our "road sensing" suspension?

wow man! that's too much compaired to Bilstein and do they provide the same performance, don't know, but Bilstein only provides the rear suspension shocks any suggestions to the front shocks?
