Scotty Posted February 22, 2005 Report Share Posted February 22, 2005 What I don't like about my car is the softness of the suspension. It may be a result of my bad struts, but my springs offer very little weight support at all. I am worried that my springs are so soft that they will allow my new struts to accept too much road shock and wheel movement. I am wondering if weak springs will cause the new struts to fail fast because they are not supporting the weight of the car sufficiently. I have heard that the springs are good if they support the car at its proper ride height. On Saturday the mechanic could not put the alignment equipment on my rear wheels because the skirt line was below the top of the wheel, and I could only get the front aligned. Because of that I am thinking that my ride height may be low, indicating that my springs are in fact soft and shot.. I have to measure the ride height, the spec is in the manual. If I am not mistaken there are some suspension differences between the Deville and the Concours. I am going to replace my struts and springs. Does anyone know, 1) would there be a benefit getting the Concours springs/struts vs. the Deville? 2) would they fit? What do you all think about what I have said here? I am going to replace the front struts (OEM) and springs and the rear springs. I am considering the Concours OEM if they fit and if there is a benefit, after market performance springs if they are available, and as a last resort stock OEM. Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
