95SLS Posted July 3, 2005 Report Share Posted July 3, 2005 Well, Busting 150 K miles of rode hard. Latel I notice that when I hit bumps in road at like 80, the car vears around. Thought that was odd, Then I was Racing a pal in his brand new Mustang, While I was getting the best of him, he noticed my RR wheel hopping. When we got to the DQ he tells me, I look and sure enough I notice a damp ring of oil around the rubber on the strut. So that is so much for that strut. Now I need help. It's a 95 SLS and it's about perfect condition wise, so perfect that I am buying ner skin for the seats. So It's a Keeper. I am thinking even if I blow the engine I'd rebuild it if I could. A new one makes me squeamish. Anyhow. I am going to have to take care of the strut problem. Alll the others look ok, No codes (So it's a mechanical failure) I know they cost lik $700 ea at dealer and maybe can be had for like $400 at Rockauto. I also know that they are a rare find. Last I looked the dealer only had a few. Years ago. But, do I buy just the one? Did anyone ever go passive and really like it? Did anyone follow the bypass the RSS Code after a Passive install and have luck? What do we recomend? I took it to a suspension shop and they refuse to do Cadillacs, So I am on my own. (Not that I would consider any other way.) I want to go the best way, I'd like to keep the factory system because of the Speed sensitive suspension. But if someone has a better way with Passives that gives as good a feel and response, I'll try it. I know with what I have I can do a Get on Ramp at like 60 and an off ramp at 70. I think I read all the archives but I may have missed some. Long time no hear, Because The Dag gone thing runs so good. Mike Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
