Is your car the SLS or STS ??? Different suspensions. Early 2002 STS or later production - different suspensions.
Gabriel and Monroe make manually inflatable shocks to replace the original equipment Electronic Level Control shocks. Look in www.rockauto.com - use the RPO sticker under the spare tire cover to determine which suspension system you have - F45/FE1 is soft ride, F45/FE3 is sport tuned, F55/FE3 is sport tuned Magnetic Ride Control
If your car has a build date after 01/15/02 then you have F55 - Magnetic Ride Control and there is no satisfactory passive alternative for that.
