    Another odd question, does your STS have a wood grain strip down the center of the gear selector? Mine doesn't, and every one I see with wood trim has it. I have all the other wood trim, just not on the gear selector.
    No my car did not ride anything like you describe, even with bad front struts. I do think "Tourist" is on too something though, it sounds 'from what you describe' that the rear shocks are all the way aired up and making it ride like that C3500 work van. Go check out that place that does MRC work and they would be able to tell you what is wrong within the hour most likely. Also your likely to get off relatively cheap, sounds like the shocks are doing their job and it is the air pump or switch that is defective. (just guessing though)

    Yes, my gear shift has the same wood grain in the middle of the knob as is on the dash, console and doors. You easily switch that out on yours if you ever run across one you like at a junk yard or on ebay. Good Luck.

    There are two different systems on the STS, depending on the suspension options.

    The tests you describe indicate serious issues that any dealer should be able to fix.
