My compressor went bad. It's actually pretty common after a hose fails. It overheats after running almost constantly. Luckily, the shocks were OK.
For the OP, check out the 'plumbing' to make sure it isn't something minor. A compressor should be a lot less than $800 installed from an auto re-cycling yard. Good luck if it's major. Members from north of the border report high prices. MRC shocks are spendy for all of us.
In the US, Mary Kay cars usually remain property of Cadillac and are repainted after their original service is over. You do have a rare car. They aren't cheap to maintain but they are exceptional cars.
Well it's my 3rd Caddy with air ride that the Compressor let go, so good chance that is what is wrong. But since I'm not familiar with the MRC system I want to make sure. when I drive it it feels like there is nothing there but the spring. You hit a bump and the car keeps bouncing for a ways.
Ya good chance I will have to start looking around for one. I've had good luck with GMpartsdirect. I'm waiting fo confermation but looks like they sell the MRC shocks for 336 each for rear .http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/catalog/frameset.cfm
and type in shock STS, w/variable time damping.but they call it variable time damping, would that be the same? they just E-mailed me and said it is the same part the part # is 15148390
Yes they do seam a high price but if that is the same part I can live with that price.
Yes I heard that Cadillac repaints them, I don't know how this one made it past? When I types in the vin at GM it was the only pink one with all these option made that year. I'm sure they are not cheap to maintain but the but the price was right. 15.000 was still under Cadillac warranty and had extended warranty....that ran out 2 months ago lol. But I do love the how it handles in the corners
