  1. New shocks, keep air or no ?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    SUV has 150k on the clock. Riding rough. Looking at changing out shocks. Seems the best path forward is to install a conversion kit and do away with the air shocks. Was hoping for some insight. Have read that you need to install bypass electronics, OR you can just pull a fuse to avoid errors...
  2. Used front strut fit for 2007 SRX V6?

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hi guys/girls. I bought a 2007 SRX/v-6 . It has many issues and I have already spent $$$$ fixing a few, but I am going to get it back to where it should be. Anyway, the FRONT struts need to be changed. They have about 100K on them I believe. Because I have been fixing so many things already, I...
  3. How many miles did your shocks/springs last?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Hi. I drive a 2010 cts awd 3.6 station wagon with 50k miles. I love the car. But I've perceived the suspension seems a bit squishy lately. There is no obvious leakage. It doesn't make sounds or vibrations. The ride just seems wallowy. Has anyone else experienced this after 50k miles/10...

  5. Shock Setup 02 Escalade 2wd

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Can someone inform me if it makes sense to have autoride/electronic dampening shocks in the front, and air ride in the back of my 02 Escalade 2wd? The shocks in the rear look like auto leveling shocks, and the shocks in the front have a connector on top only. I'm trying to remedy front end...
  6. 2007 ESV Z55 to passive shock nightmare

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Please help!! Hello, after finding that both my compressor and shocks were shot I recently decided on going with passive rear shocks. In doing so, I removed the plugs from the old shocks and changed them out, intending to add resistors later. During this time the dash lit up like a Christmas...
  7. 1991 FWD Deville shakes at 65+ mph

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    The vibration starts around 65mph and continues upward. It does not feel like it’s in the steering wheel but rather the car itself. The tires are brand new and the place said that they balanced them. What else might be the cause?
  8. 94 DeVille - (4.9) - suspension questions, softer ride quality sought

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Hey folks, my car: 1994 Cadillac DeVille with the 4.9L V8 (not Northstar) with 152,000 miles on it. Runs very well and is my daily driver. I bought this about a year ago from an older family that doesn’t drive any longer and thus got the deal of a lifetime on it. Where else can you get a...
  9. How to LOWER an STS?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    I have a 2005 STS with FE1 (Self-Levelling) shocks and got myself H&R Lowering Springs for the 2nd gen CTS. I read about raising the top mount of the shocks and cutting/trimming the rubber spacer on top of the shock. What do you guys think? Thank you.
