Night Wolf said:there are no air bags, they are air shocks....and it isn't the auto level thing that will kill ya, it's the speed sensitive supsension, they are electronic shocks, and that is why they are alot of money to rpelace, you can still get air shocks and hook them up to the compressor, but you woudln't have the comptuer command ride thingy....
ok, I am sorry, '92 it was an option, '93 and it became standerd.blkchrry92dvl said:I'm told by my mechanic that I DO NOT have computer controlled shocks (and I heard they're far more expensive to replace). However, he said I do have "air riders", and I'm sure they're not air springs as I saw coil springs there. I guess my original question was: can I retrofit cheaper replacements instead of factory ones?
And DeVillish, my battery is on the passenger side of the car. And yes I do agree that it's under the hood, as I heard buzzing noises coming from there, although now I would have to find out where it came from.
Can you tell me what brand/model shocks you used in that 89 brougham if you remember? BTW, 89 brougham uses the same body as 92 deville, right?Night Wolf said:ok, I am sorry, '92 it was an option, '93 and it became standerd.
about the shocks, I am sure you can, we did that with my mothers '89 Brougham, and still have th auto-level thing....
....also with that car, cargo springs helped out ALOT
Parts stores carry Monroe replacements for $60-110 depending on what you want. Air replacements w/auto leveling and w/o electronics are about $63 each. Not too bad.blkchrry92dvl said:My 92 deville's rear air riders are just about shot, and I heard that they're not cheap (~$200 each). Has anyone retrofitted cheaper alternative shocks instead? I'd be willing to sacrifice ride quality if the price is right.
