question about shocks and coil-overs
Ok, i was looking for some good adjustable shocks for my DeVille, but i cant find any. So i was wondering if other shocks that wouldnt be listed as for a DeVille would work. I would like to get some KYB adj shocks but they dont have any listed for a 90 Deville. Also what about coil-overs, could i get a set of those on my car? I bet it all sounds dumb but hey, to each his own.

I dont think there is a coilover out there for your application. Maybe an airbag setup could be a better pick?

I highly doubt you will find any adjustable shocks. If you want adjustibility, then your best bet is airbags, though not cheap when done right.
You may check and see if monroe has a set. I know monroe does them because my grandpa has a set for an old crown victoria.

yeah i was thinking about bagging it, but i dunno anything about them other than air makes them go up and down, got any sites with info on them?

I dont have any information about that, but try doing an internet search.
Did you try monroe?? www.monroe-shocks.com (i think)

they do have a "sport shock" and its not that bad of a price, i might check those out.

Just go there and ask for a quote. They'll tell you what can fit your car and not, because not all of them will fit your car. Getting your hopes up for just one may not be good.

well i found the sport shock after going through all the pick your year make/model stuff, so they should fit. i think discount auto around here sells monroe stocks so i'll ask them too.

Good luck finding adj. shocks or coilovers. Bilstein and KYB DO make pretty nice shocks for the 90 Deville although not adj. My shop carries a full line if you want a good deal, email me, email@example.com

You can get them with adjustable inserts for your stock struts so you can have adjustable passive struts with stock spring mounts.
You can also get coilovers with adjustable height.
