    Replacing shocks

    Someone said they had their shocks replaced under GMPP, why?

    I remember 1madstsv saying the ride gets bouncy and I'm noticing now where as b4 no sir!

    Certain transitions in the road will show the bouncyness

    Are you under gmpp? Why not just go in and say you think you hear a slight clink/bouncy ride from your shocks. I never understand why people don't bring their car in when they are under warranty. I'd rather have it fixed then be angry that my car is broken.

    Re: Replacing shocks

    The thread http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...3-springs.html got my interest too as I was told by my service rep that struts and springs are not covered under GMPP. Which is why I asked OP in that thread about GMPP and spring replacement but never got a response.

    @cstarky15 I will wear a warranty out, but with having the 3D springs on the vehicle it is a legit ament issue if the dealer points to the springs as the culprit at least on the surface anyway so since someone has went dwn this path SUCCESSFULLY I'm looking to see what happened in their situation
