Question about 2002 Cadillac Escalade

Electronic air shocks bad

Id like to replace my $300 a piece air shocks with regular $69.00 Monroe shocks for a standard SUV. From everything I've checked out and compared at the autoparts stores, they should bolt right up to the vehicle. I have already disconnected the air system electronicaly. Will these standard shocks bolt right up??

You can get the one that bolt right up. Make sure they are heavy duty beacause that escalade is heavy.

Need New Shocks


I would suggest that you put Monroe sense a track shocks on this truck. There is also an option for a spring assist load leveler shock for the rear that would give you a little firmer ride and help a lot when towing or loads. hope this helps...Chris

What's the cheapest way to fix rear Air shocks


Well you have electronic controlled suspension which uses air shocks among other components.
The shocks are unique to Cadillac and your model fits various cars from 1998 until 2005.
You can buy replacement parts new, or used. I'm not aware of anyone who makes the shocks in standard form due to the electronic control feature.

Rear auto leveling system shock replacement. Can you use Monroe gas shocks? Monroe air shocks?


Gas shocks won't work but the air shocks should get you "up" and running again.

Why is my autoride not kicking in when I attach my trailer


The autoride system has three main parts. The first is the very large, complex shock absorber that has not only a sensor to detect shaft travel in the shock but also has an air ride feature that allows more air to be added into the shock and bladder system to increase the support to the rear end. The shock can go bad ($623.00 each MSRP, though you can get them from Monroe for about 250.00-check Amazon.com but be prepared to wait, they have been on backorder recently.) The control module can go bad....check everything else first...or the air pump can go bad.

Are you getting any malfunction codes...Service Ride System?

The most common failure is the bladder of the Shock...check it...it is easily visible from the rear of the vehicle. If the bladder is blown it is usually grossly blown.

My autoride suspension is not working


A ton of things could be wrong with your autoride system. If you have more than about 70k miles and haven't replaced the rear shocks ($500+ EACH!!! at the dealer), then they are probably leaking out. If they leak out, then the air compressor will always run. Eventually the air compressor/ride level sensor module (located on the driver side rear wheel on the inboard side of the frame, $300+ at the dealer) burns out because it's not designed to run at 100% duty cycles. After the air compressor burns out, the Electronic Stability Control module (in an XL, located inside the passenger side rear wheelwell trim, next to the third row seat, $300+ at the dealer) will probably short out. If your autoride isn't working and you don't get a "Service Stability" message, your ESC module is probably going bad.

It is possible to convert to regular shocks, but to keep the Stability Control (still has to control your brakes and front variable dampening shocks during "evasive" maneuvers), you have to insert some 1/4 watt resistors in to the ride height sensor connectors (can't remember what values, but I'm sure you can Google that) so that the Stability system doesn't throw a code. Not that it matters, but the message can get annoying if it's always there to nag...

My dealer quoted over $2500 to replace the entire system. I figure I can find the control modules from my local junkyard for $300, and the shocks from ebay for $350 for the pair. Be sure to match all of the GM part numbers, and keep an eye out for an upgraded Air Compressor module - GM released an update that is heavier duty and more water-resistant than the first design. I don't remember the part number, but my dealer included the upgrade with my quote.

Oh, and the only "easy" way to test the modules is with a Tech 2 tool. Otherwise it's lots of testing with a 12-volt source and a couple of multimeters and oscilliscopes...

Good luck!
