Yes u can, u will need one of suncore industries kits ($539.00) to do the conversion to standard shock strut system, u will also need the relay kit. Call them before u buy.

Need to locate the air pump that supplies the rear shocks.


The pump is back under the rear of car, but by now, the shocks are sure to be leaking, which causes the pump to run too much burning it up. Best fix is to replace rear shocks with coils and dump the self leveling feature, or prepare to pay big bucks to replace most components.

1997 cadillac deville 4 door sedan can you replace factory rear air shocks with good ol' after market air shocks ( these are the ones that you yourself can adjust the ride height by putting air into them)...


You can, but they won't adjust like your factory ones (automatically) Lots of folks replace w/aftermarket shocks instead of depending on factory units.

How do i raise an 89 sedan deville with air struts i've ripped out my high pressure line twice and have decided to raise the car and might put some bigger rims on it


You should have coil over stuts/shocks. On the rear you will have to put a coil kit on, but the front is ready to be changed. All you have to do is replace the air shocks with normal shocks with coil springs/helper springs. You can normally find these kits at auto supply stores, but you can also find them online, and possibly eBay. Make sure to shop around before you make a purchase. Your other option is to replace your air bags with lifter shocks. You would run the air lines to a convenient place where you can air them up manually. This would allow you to change the height of the car and the ride of the car. But this will make the "Cadillac ride" become more of a truck feel. Hope this helps you with your decision.

1997 CADDT DEVILLE-----SHOCKS


You can spend half that money and go with a non air conversion kit from Strutmasters. With these air rides its not for sure that by changing the air shock that you will fix your car. If you car has cracks in the air lines that can cause a big issue too. When we replaced the ride on my moms Deville, it was an easy switch to this non air conversion kit. No more low rider!
