    HElp pls: Need shock absorbers for 98 Cadillac Seville STS

    Hi all,

    New here as I am helping my brother (in Mexico) get the shock absorbers for his 98 Cadillac Seville STS.

    Can anybody please tell me some places to check for good used parts?

    Would I need to have the VIN in case they have different shocks for different VINs?

    Any other suggestion will be welcome as he really needs to get this car fixed before he comes to visit me hopefully by Xmas.

    If possible please reply to my email but I will try to check this forum later.

    Thanks!

    Yes, they do... However, most here feel it is best to "upgrade" to the passive struts.... usually the active (stock) struts are really expensive..... Plus, the passive ones dont seem to have any negative things to handling or ride.....

    Hello, this is a shot in the dark but I live in Nothern California and I have a couple good Cady only salvage yards near by. One guy quoted me $250 a side for shocks that would cost $500 new. This was for my 96 STS. His parts seem pretty nice and he seemed like a good guy. If you are interested I could get you the phone number(s) I am guesing that if you payed be credit card they might ship them to you. Let me know.

    Will
