  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. Can a XT5 have a 3 inch lift?

    Cadillac XT5 First Generation Forum (2017+)
    I’ve been trying to do some research on whether there’s lift kits to buy therefore I can install it myself or would it have to be a specialized lift kit at a local 4 wheel speciality garage? Thoughts?
  3. 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...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Does anyone know the part number for the wiring harness side connectors for the front and rear shocks? Trying to undo the z95 suspension delete and bring it back to magnetic ride. Previous owner cut all connectors off. Thank-you!
  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?

    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.

  11. ELC troubles

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have searched and found some info, but I still have a couple basic questions. This morning I got in my car and was greeted with "speed limited to 90" (I don't have the RSS on my ESC). Drove to town, made 3 stops and the message did not reappear. I got home to pull codes, and with the key on...
  12. Suspension

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    What are the differences in the 2010 model suspensions. I have a 2008 CTS w/sport suspension and the ride is definitely rough. I would like a much smoother ride and I am looking at the 10's after my lease is up. Any thoughts?
  13. I have a sound that needs identifying too..

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    On ETC, when I floor it from a stop, there is a split second groaning noise that is similar to the sound traction control makes when active, or ABS -- however there is no accompanying shudder. The car shifts fine and runs fine -- however it freaks me out and I let off of the gas. If I take off...
  14. Lowering options

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007

There are various events throughout the week such as a cruise, drive-in movie, dinners, and an all-day show 'n shine to conclude the week (which is what I went to).

  17. I'm pondering a Porsche Boxster.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    MORE LIKE 'POOR'SCHE Seriously though, I'm thinking about it. I've looked at all the warnings, all the quirks, all the hazardously expensive repairs. It seems like most of what goes wrong happens during the warranty period, so by now (8-12 years, 60-100k) all of it has been ironed out or...
