List of suspension modifications for your Cadillac
Okay. Sorry. I hope I didn't mislead you right off the bat.. But.. I'd like this to be an easy-to-find topic for people looking for anything they can do to improve the suspension on their Caddy. I'll be posting up information from here on the main web site.. So.. Who's going to be the first?
well, i dont have anything done yet, but i got plans! hehe...
KYB shocks, remove air shocks and cut off one front coil, larger sway bars, polly bushings(maybe), Power Stop drilled rotors and green stuff pads, and 17 or 18in wheels with some super glue like tires. Well i got big dreams.
Stock rear springs and shocks, lower the rear height sensor to minimum. Install lower front springs and Monroe-Matic shocks (spec'd for the Fleetwood). Then install limousine sway bars and bushings. Top it off with 17" wheels and rubber and you have a damn nice handling, smooth-riding Caddy.
If you want it to ride like a truck, do the Impala SS/9C1 suspension mods, but if you want it to ride like a Cadillac, this is the way. I don't have the spring numbers on me now but CAN get them for anyone interested.
I did the grill myself and it was a lot of work. I cutout every other horizontal slat to make bigger openings (thought it gave it a more aggressive look). Then graphed a 2000 STS center emblem into it. I got the STS grill section from a bodyshop that just had a crushed STS. Thankfully, the center section of the grill survived
From there it was a lot of fiberglass, putty, and sanding. Finish it off with some dark cherry metallic paint and clearcoat and there you have it.
I really think it MAKES the car and was worth all the work.
