    If you have the time and $$$, rebuild the suspension back to stock (including the rear level system) for that nice Cadillac ride and control.

    Otherwise, start searching the aftermarket spring and strut/shock sites for passive replacements.

    I'm about to replace my suspension too. I'm going to do it in 2-3 weeks from now. I'm replacing my front struts & rear air shocks with ALL Arnott Industries parts. After doing extensive research I've come to find that all caddy owners who use Arnott get Great, satisfying results & no SERVICE RIDE CONTROL message!! I'm going to replace the springs as well, I'm getting those from the dealer but I might look around to see where they're cheaper. I think Eibach springs lower your vehicle so I'm not going for those. GOOD LUCK MAN!!

    Could be the pump that puts the air to your rear shocks is not working. Or bad springs. If your shocks dont leak its one or the other. Unless you have a ton of weight in the rear maybe.

    Re: 93 deville suspension

    On my cadillac I replaced my rear springs with Rear Variable Rate Coil Springs and replace the air struts and it no longer sags in the back. To make sure the air struts have air see if you can squeeze the air bladder on the struts. Thats what I do to make sure the air struts don't have a leak. When you do decide to get springs get Rear Variable Rate Coil Springs because they get firmer when there is added weight.

    Re: 93 deville suspension

    Can the Arnott 94 Deville Rear Air Struts be used on a 93 Deville? For some odd reason Arnott does not any replacements for the 91-93 Deville.

    Thx

    ===============================
    to answer your question - NO -
    the 93 uses rear struts - the 94 uses rear shocks -
    it has a completely different rear suspension system -

    the stuff from arnott is WAY overpriced CRAP -

    what you NEED is the MONROE 71798 - and I found you a KILLER DEAL for you -
    $50 each - with free shipping -
