Does anyone know if I can replace my '05 STS struts with non MRC struts ? My car has 185,000 and the cost to do all four MRC shocks is way too expensive. Would love to just put in a good set of Bilsteins or KYB.
Agreed. MRC is spendy to fix/replace but that's the risk you take when you buy an MRC equipped Cadillac...If my MRC shocks/struts ever need replacing they'll get OEM replacements...Can't imagine this thing with a "normal" suspension setup...It would handle like a Caprice.Pay the Cadillac tax and get the real thing.
haha. Have you driven an 05+ STS without MRC? I would not describe it as wandering all over the road like a sad cow... Fine handling car with the normal suspension. I drove both, and considering I planned to keep the car for a very long time I choose one without it due to the lower maintenance cost.You can replace the MRC shocks with cheap substitutes but you will then have a car that wanders all over the road like a sad old sow.
$800+ each??? From where? The dealer?DG2 said:Thanks fir all your input on this. Perhaps some of you are not aware of the cost. It is over $800 per strut plus labor !!! That's pushing $4,000 to replace the shocks.
I would add if the other price was fir brand new ones ?? Seems too low. But then again it could simply be the New York thing.stoveguyy said:Maybe you should go to the dealer with the 550$ shock? Saving 200 on each is worth a trip. Is that price for installed?
