    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.

    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.

    Adj. shocks.

    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, mbanks21@yahoo.com

    Yes you can get them.

    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.
