Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum - 2004 - 2009 Discussion, Rear shock replacement in Cadillac SRX Forums; Don't forget the reason you have the auto-leveling, the HID's.
Without the auto-level your headlights may end up to high ...
Just replaced the front MRC shocks with standard ones and disconnected the control sysytem. My rear shocks had already been disconnected by someone else so i don't know what they did to defeat the computor there. I bought a couple of spade type automotive light sockets with the two wires for connecting to a circuit. I plugged a 10 watt automotive bulb into each socket and pushed the two wires into the computor connector which had been previously connected to the MRC shocks. (You have to remove the adapter to expose the female connections) Wrap some electrical tape around the connection to keep it place and viola 'No Warning Flags'. Both light sockets c/w bulbs cost about $10 bucks. Took about five minutes to do both sides. I also read somewhere that a 3 ohm resistor works as well. Don't know for sure. Been driving for a couple of months and so far so good.
One last piece of info. The bulbs did not light up so you don't have to worry about starting a fire under ythe hood, however, they do provide enough variable resistance to do the job.
