    Inventive Rear Shocks

    We need a market for raising our rear ends. I see so many Cadillacs riding around with bad rear shocks. It's getting almost as bad as all the Lincolns. Maybe there's just a lot of people riding around with bodys in there big bodies, I don't know. But to get to it my 91 Sedan DeVille was doing the same thing. I bought new air shocks for it but they didnt go to the level I wanted. They just made the ride level. I don't know if it's just me (and now my buddys) but I think a Cadillac looks awesome with the rear end up real high. I have thought of a way to build an object that would be easy to make and would raise the rear end up. It would be easy to install to. I dont know how to weld though. I'm not gonna reveal what the idea is though because I'm thinking I could make some money off this.

    Another thing to easy thing to do to raise the back end on one of these Cadillacs that doesn't have adjustable shocks on the market for itis this. I cut the factory lines that hook up to the shocks. I then bought some tubing and some hose clamps. I bought a T air valve that came with some line. I connected the facory lines with the lines that came with the T valve by sticking them in the ends of the hose that I bought and used the hose clamps to seal them. Overnight they still go low again though but when I fill it up I get compliments for the rest of the day wherever I go.

    The downfalls r that the back wheels fold bottom inwards a little because of the independant suspension and it rides like a freakin Ford truck when they're full. It wouldnt ride like that with my other idea though.

    If anyone can weld and make custom stuff I think there would be a bunch of people buying them. My email address is jboyanstey@tmail.com. Hit me up if ur interested in this project. We could sell them on ebay or make flyers and keep them in the car with us to sell them whenever we see a Cadillac in need. With these brackets u could raise the back end easily and without messing up the shock absorption at all.

    This idea is way better than my idea to bust sideview mirrors all over town and start a sideview mirror business.

    Thank God for capitalism based on free enterprise in America. Good ideas flourish and bad ones go defunct!
