  1. Stabilizer Links possibly causing wobbly handling?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    When I drive the car (98' Deville), it feels as if a wheel or something is wobbling at low speeds, and the car vibrates a little at high speeds. I believe the wobbling feeling is worse when turning. The last time I drove the car, these symptoms were not present. The only thing I have done since...
  2. Handling

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Though I`ve only owned my SRX three weeks, one of the things that has been a nice surprise is the way it handles. Particularly in sports mode when I really like to push the envelope on corners. Years ago when I was a young buck, I owned a 74 Z28 Camaro that could hold it`s own with my buddy`s...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I am looking for new rotors and pads for my 2006 with the performance and handling package (FE5/JE5). Some sites like top brakes let you select that package but on eBay the sellers just have standard and sports package. I spoke to one eBay seller and he wanted to know the size of the disc etc...

  6. 97 - 99 Deville Passive Shocks / Springs - Best Handling?

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    I just bought a low mileage '98 Deville and am considering replacing the shocks on this car. It is equipped with the passive, rear air adjustable, suspension.

  7. 03 Deville highbeams and handling

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I just bought a Deville 03 DTS. When I turn on the highbeams all the headlights go out. The bulbs don't look burned out, and they don't look easy to get to. Does anyone have any ideas about wiring problems with these cars? The column switch etc? How do you get to the headlight bulbs? Also I...
  8. Snow Handling

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    I was curious if anyone who owned an STS-v drove it in the snow or uses it as a daily driver. I was considering trading my current car (chevrolet monte carlo) for an STS-V or an STS V8 or V8 all wheel drive. I realize the car is rear wheel drive and that it has a lot of power. I was just curious...

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    My V has 48k on her and was starting to feel like it was getting darty (quick jerks side to side) over uneven pavement or minor bumps. So much so that passengers were complaining (wife). WELL I got into a fight with a curb and knocked the font left out of align. I took it right away to...

  11. How to increase handling through the chassis

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Hello, We have been doing a lot of different development of the 08/09 CTS application. One of the items of interest was the chassis and its relative torsional rigidity. We wanted to see what we could do to strengthen the chassis in key locations without compromising the ride quality. After...

  13. Monroe Shocks and Struts installed, review of handling.

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    Well, I ended up buying the passive Monroe Sensatrack front struts, and the Monroe rear air shocks. Replace all the mounts and isoltators for the suspension front and rear as well. It's only been a few days, but the ride is pretty comfortable. It's a little bouncy in the rear going over...
  14. '05 Performance Handling Package: Just brakes & tires or more?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I've been researching all over and I keep finding conflicting info on what the $795 Performance Handling Package included. I know it was only available on the rwd cars and included grippier brake pads and summer-only tires, but I've also read it included different shocks & springs. Can anyone...
  15. Bad Weather Handling

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Big storm in Detroit last night for the ride home with several inches of fresh snow and they must have decided not to plow I-75 North bound until it stopped because the rode conditions where the worst I've seen in years. 90% of the time there was no visable pavement anywhere and a ton of traffic...
  16. Low buck tips to improve handling on the 77-96 D Body cars?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Emphasis on low buck boys and girls: 1. Install 70-81 F Body 1.25" front antisway bar. This has a shorter lever than the stock 1 1/8" or 30mm (1.18") bar we have, so the bar is much more in control than we have now stock. 9C1, FE2, Impala SS FE4, bars are all the same 30mm, they are NOT the...

  19. Best Handling Cadillac at bargain prices?

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    You see I am in a bit of a spot. I have been a Mazda RX7 guy for 10 years now, but have grown up with the Cadillac marque and I am deeply considering giving up on the RX7 for a Caddie. I would grab the CTS but it is just out of budget, maybe in another 5-7 years. I have came up with what seems...
