Replacing Rear Shocks

Recommended Posts

I am considering replacing the rear shocks on my '99 STS with conventional ones. This car has the road sensing suspension on it and I was wondering how I might do that with out getting a number of fault codes when the connectors to the shocks are unpluged.

Thank you for any help

Arnott, Monroe, and others make standard shocks for your car that include kits that plug into the wiring harness to keep the dash warning lights dark.

I think a 4700 ohm resistor will keep the message fom setting. Use the harness from the old shocks, trim it to 6" in length and solder the resistor across the wires. Use heat shrink tubing to make a waterproof seal.
