Rear suspension shot, Help!
I have a 1993 ElDorado and my mechanic tells me that my suspension is shot, rear that is, and the rubber is cracked and leaking, the new parts from the dealer will cost me about $1000.00, any clue if i can get this fixed for cheaper?

Time to hit the parts stores. Rear air shocks for your car aren't cheap.

I did run into a site that has air ride suspension for cadillac - try www.strutmasters.com about $550 for all 4 wheels.
I do have a question, can you just replace the rear or the front? i think you have to replace it all at once if you are going from the air ride system to passive.
Any help? Corrections?

I had my work done at the dealer on my 93, and they just replaced the front struts with the passive ones, the back air ride still works like before. On the 93 it's called SSS (speed sensitive suspension/speed sensitive steering)... not sure if thats an option, or standard feature, but before the front struts went the car ran ultra smooth, but now you can feel the road a bit more.
