  1. ATS Performance Forum
    I got my car around 6 months ago at 43k at 48k now. Been riding on stock suspension and wheels and tires. Been looking at the bc br racing coilover kit recently and it looks really nice when lowered. My only issue is people say they get knocking with the kit in the car and noises. Some people...

  3. SRX 2nd Generation Forum - 2010-2016
    I have a 2011 SRX Performance AWD. Just performed a strut replacement but the passenger side strut is hitting the roof. I tore down and reassembled while comparing to the driver side but still the passenger side nut and rubber is hitting the roof. Any suggestions? The mounts are new and the strut...
  4. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    i posted before on my new used 01 eldorado. today, 2 weeks later, i had a chance to back up on ramps to diagnose the passenger side rapid clunk over bumps. looks to me like every bushing needs replacing or buying the whole arm(s) 1: is there a cheap way to save the "bars" & replace the...
  5. ATS General Discussion Forum
    Does anyone know what the front diameter of the front sway bar/anti roll bar is on the awd models? I've looked online everywhere and I can find the rwd models, which is 23mm fronts and 14mm rear, but I cant find anything about the AWD cars. Ive heard theyre bigger then rwd and good enough which...

    Will BC’s for an AWD fit on my RWD? What’s the difference in the setups? I’ve heard only the spring rates are different. They look to be the same ?¿
  7. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999-2006
    My SSS light is on and was told by the previous owner that the dealer said it was the auto level suspension. Now with snow on the ground, I have no traction control and I don’t think my AWD is working either. My main goal is to get traction control and AWD working. Is there a fix for this...
  8. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    Hello, dear owners of Seville, I have a question for you! Can you describe how soft a Cadillac's Seville suspension can be? I am planning to buy a 1993 Cadillac Seville SLS on 4.9 litre Nordstar and want to know as much information as possible about it. I was forced to come to this forum because...
  9. ATS General Discussion Forum
    Hey, I have an ATS 2014 only 45k km. There's this weird metal/rubber type clunk sound from the suspension when going over speed bumps or really uneven roads but only after an idle start. So, it only comes if i haven't driven it for a few hours and of course if i drive it 20min to take it to the...
  10. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    My 05’ STS squeaked whenever turning the wheel at low speeds. I would spray silicone & red tacky grease on just about everything that moved behind the wheels & the squeaking would stop for a little while. This went on for a couple of months driving 100 or so miles per day on Interstates. Then...
  11. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999-2006

Any,, I put some 20inch factory wheels on it 8 or so months ago I usually cruise around 80 on bypass etc. Rear end gets a little wobbly...
  12. 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...
  13. 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?
  14. SRX 1st 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...

  16. RWD DeVille/Fleetwood, Brougham 19xx-1996
    Hi all. I have a 1978 Cadillac Coupe DeVille that i’d like to install the original elc system in. I was wondering what part numbers I’d need to do a full install. I’ve found an original nos compressor for that year and ac delco makes a shock kit 504-511 can I put the nos compressor together with...
  17. 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!
  18. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    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?
  19. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    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...
  20. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    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.
