The electronic level control (ELC) compressor of my 1995 Fleetwood finally quit. Because the rear struts were leaking anyway, I want to get rid of them and install regular shocks. The rear sags as it is shown in the photo. The edge of the skirt should be some 1.5" - 2" higher. Rockauto has listed gas-charged ones for my car. Question - will the replacement bring the rear to proper level if I keep the original springs? Thank you.
Hey guys, good morning! I purchased the Monroe 90011(front strut conversion kit) and Monroe 90009 (rear air to gas assist conversion kit) for my 97 DeVille from Rock Auto. Was told they would have a resister/plug to terminate or overide the computer when I placed order. The boxes didn't, so contacted RockAuto this morning. The rep said he understood that the lines were cut and grounded to the frame to overide the system. I was wanting to leave all of the original plumbing in place, to go back to the original system if I don't like the ride of the passive system. Sooo, I guess my big question
There's an inch-and-a-half-thick Owners' Manual that came with my 98 DeVille d'Elegance...and here are three words that DO NOT APPEAR anywhere in that book: suspension, shocks, struts. It doesn't even tell me whether I have electronic shocks or not. I know the ride isn't what it ought to be -- probably still running OE stuff, since this car was bought from a prior owner -- but I need to know what I'm dealing with. So please tell me what suspension this car has. Thanks very much.
Hi. Shop says I need rear shocks on my 1996 Deville; they're leaking. I love the car. It is showroom. But they say it will cost me $3,400 (in NY). On-line repair estimators verify this amount. Anyone here know any alternatives? I can't spend that kind of money on just a couple of shocks. Is it time to junk my Cadillac? Thanks for your feedback. (
