Re: Does anyone else have electric struts on there seville?
Your struts for that model year have a electric soleniod on them that activates a 3-way valve. The valve positions for "soft", "normal", and "hard". It is controlled by the computer and is dependent on speed and road condition.
To my knowledge, these struts were only factory installed. There are no aftermarket replacements. You are going to have to replace them with passive struts and disable that part of the computer. Search the forum, there is tons of info on this.
And I'm disappointed that when this technology wears out you have to do without it.
