My thinking is that if you do geek out the car just a bit, like you do when you use auto tuning software, having a record of ride height for each wheel could be very valuable in selecting shock damping, evaluating tires, etc. Very little software can tell when all the tires aren't in the same plane and thus flag wheel hop, for example, and whenever any wheel hits its limit of travel you need to know that the suspension dynamics have gone back to the stone age for that wheel. I can think of ways that a real-time display from that data could be more valuable in an autocross race than any other dashboard readout.
Oh, yeah. I remember seeing those on the ETC models. My lowe A-Arms have unused tabs for them and I bet that all necessary bolt holes are in place too.
It might not be such a pain to add on. Worth another look when I get the car farther along.
The ride height sensors don't have anything to do with the shocks, electrically. They are little boxes that bolt to the chassis and have arms that stick out, then links from the ends of the arms to a suspension arm. All Cadillacs that have rear-end leveling have them on the rear. The ones that connect to the PZM have three-wire connectors (hot on start and run, ground, signal).
But, I see your point, and also that you have moved on.
Adding a bolt with a cam on it for quick adjustment of camber for road vs. track is a really great idea.
When I start the engine, often there is problem getting out of parking on the autmatic gearbox. I sometimes have to wait up to 1 minut. I do not know if it ís to do with idle speed or electric or what it is depended on.
Thank you. I figured.
I found a nice video on youtube on how to repair these horns. I have done one so far, cant wait to do them all and see how well they work.
It may be that there was only one left working that is intermittent. I should find out when i install one of them.
4 horns, thats incredible. Some had 6. Surely a thing of the past
