What is the differnce with this kit as opposed to the shocks you already have for the escalade? Why would you need to replace the springs?

I'm not sure if this holds true for the Escalade, but my Fleetwood has auto leveling for the rear, and because of this the springs are a little bit weaker. If I were to remove the auto level from it, I would also need to replace the factory springs with some that would be heavier. As said though, I cant be certain that this holds true for the SUVs. Just a thought.

It seems the springs are for the rear to level it out. Lets face facts, shocks last 25000-50000 miles usually, maybe less on these heavy trucks, so many owners with 2007 and 2008 trucks that are off warranty may want another option because the shocks before magnetic ride were just ok at best, so this is a good option

They're great. I put in a set all around but that was before this kit. I don't see the need for the springs unless, like you say, it's a leveling spring. Maybe they are a heavy duty spring because those rear shocks don't look like the other ones Arnott sells with the air bags in them...then again, looks like a standard photo...those fronts are not escalade shocks either.

I am sure they are doing it for looks, I see many, many new Escalade's every week, and MANY trucks the rear sits several inches higher, take 1 of my 3 2012's, it sat much higher in the rear of the truck than the other 2, by almost 3", so I changed the rear springs to make it look like my others, used Eibach 5305 springs

Hcvone,

Do you still have the original springs that are taller? I tow a boat from time to time so the taller springs will help me out some.

Thanks,

Andrew

The rear shocks on my 06 Escalade started to leak at 115,000 miles. Cadillac wanted $1300 for just the two rear shocks.

I searched for quite a while and determined that they are made by Monroe. I was able to get a complete set of front and rear shocks that are identical to the factory units, on Amazon.com of all places. They were brand new Monroe units with a lifetime warranty. All the plug in were identifal to the factory units, and it road super wonderful after replacing all four shocks.

Total cost was less than $900, with free shipping and no sales tax. Install took less than two hours by myself....

Once I found these, I decided that I wanted to keep my Cadillac as original as possible, without having the Arronott "code eliminator" that tells me it is NOT the same.....

Worked for me....I am sure they would have a set for the 07-12 Escalades.....good luck.

They are stock length, some trucks sit higher in the rear than others, think it more due to the rear air support and the placement of the height rods than the springs

I just started to notice with pulling a boat and I guess the gas tank on the driver side mine is leaning to the driver side and its driving me crazy.
