  1. Rear end wobble

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    This could be a long one!! At speed (around 65-70) the rear end of the lade "wobbles", sometimes quite violently. At lower speeds its not there. ive done all the normal things, wheel balancing , alignment etc but no joy. The air ride compressor has also given up along with the stock shocks. So...
  2. High Speed Vibration 85-100

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I've got a slight vibration that begins at about 85mph and stays pronounced until about 100...thought it was my old RSAs being out of balance but I got new tires last week and it's still there. Same vibration that doesn't change speed or intensity no matter which gear I'm in or of the car is in...
  3. 1989 15" wheels

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have a 1988 eldorado, will the 15" wheels that came on the '89 model fit on my car without any problems? I'm in need of tires and want to go with vogue tires on the car, since i can't find a 14" tire with a wider whitewall.

  6. Mileage too LOW ??

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Looking at 1998 Deville with only 20,000 miles! Any ideas as to what to look for? Looks like tires have been replaced, but no other work is obvious. 12 year old car, 20,000 miles = 140 miles/month, if it didn't sit for 11 years. Let me know what you think.

  10. Clicking from right front wheel area

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have a noticeable "clicking" sound coming from the LEFT (title is wrong) front wheel area. As soon as I let out the clutch and move I get a click-click sound. It is not the clutch making the noise. I can push the clutch in and out while not moving and it doesn't happen. It also doesn't...

  12. Another ground control question

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I ordered the gc kit for my 07 V and have a couple questions - I have fe4's and got the 500/550 spring rate setup. Is this the most common for these shocks? My car isn't a DD so I wanted the best street setup I could get. - I'm running 275/40/19 F and 245/40/19 R on ccw's. Anyone have...
  13. 03 CTS 3.2L with shimmy during acceleration...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    03 CTS with shimmy during acceleration and driving at 40+ mph. Recently changed the platinum 4 spark plugs because of hesitation at high speeds and accelerating at highway speeds. Don't have that problem, but there is a shimmy. I don't believe it's a balaning issue with the wheels because the...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Frickin A. I just spent the last couple days putting a new differential in my '04 only to discover that the exact same whine/hum is still there. The diff is brand spankin' new. My car developed an odd whine/hum somewhere along a 200mi drive. The noise wasn't there when I left my house, but as I...
  15. Telescopic steering wheel makes engine die

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992

  16. Windshield Wiper Time on after Washer use

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Folks, Got my 2007 V a few months ago and have two minor issues that I have a question on. After I use the windshield squirters the wipers stay on for a real long time (I have checked to make sure the stalk is in the off position). Is there a way to adjust that time? Also, the prior owner...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...

    Like it says...... My 295/35/18 BFG drag radials are showing belts and I need to get something that wears just a little better on the rear,Since I'm only getting about 1800 miles out of the drag radials.
