2003 STS shocks
I've got a 150k miles on my STS and I'm pretty sure the shocks are shot. Does anyone suggest good aftermarket air shocks?

There are no after market shocks/struts for F55 (MagnaRide) cars. Get in touch with Chris at Rippy Cadillac, for discounted OEM parts.

Do you have contact info for Chris at Rippy Cadillac? Or should I just google Rippy and ask for him?

Re: 2003 STS shocks
Either look in the Vendor forums - Rippy Cadillac, Wilmington, NC or in the ads banner over there >>>
Google "Rippy Cadillac Wilmington NC".
Your rear shocks operate in two distinct ways: The internal magnetic fluid is electrically varied in viscosity to control flow through orifices - there are no moving solenoids or valves in the shock. This suspension firmness control operates in thousandths of a second. There is an external air bladder, controlled by the Level Control system, to compensate for extra weight in the trunk or rear set. It is NOT "air ride"......... Level Control uses the air compressor that runs for a second about 6 seconds aafter Key: ON.
