You call your local junk yard person ask if they know any company that deal with the type of shock you are looking for. most will look for you. some will not, you mite look under hydrolic lifts for the part or
see if the part has a part###, or manufactures name and state, look up the information on line, the company could of changed it name or under another name.

Rock auto is about the best place to start,
then you can take the part number that you get there and search for them on amazon and or ebay and see if you can find them for less, , many times you cannot,

I have a 2005 Cadillac STS that displays "Speed Limited to 80mph" Code reads "left rear actuator"...what is the fix for this??


most likely cause is that the actuator ( sensor) for the air ride shocks is telling the car that the suspension is wrong fo rhigher speeds. the "fix" would be to return to the original air-ride shocks and correct any other modifications made. with computerized systems you cannot just make arbitrary changes without re-programing the computer to accept them( a very costly "if available" option

Take it an have vehicle scan done . Your vehicle has a vast amount of electronics , control modules , communication networks for the modules to share data on . All it takes is one of the wires touching ground to cause all kind of problems . There are modules inside the doors that control power windows , locks , mirrors etc. . Hooking up a scan tool that can check for communications from all modules . Not a code reader . A GM factory Tech 2 would be best . I work for Cadillac ,have for twenty years .

05 cadillac sts left brakelight is dim


The globe may be in backwards. Twin filiment globes can sometimes be installed back to front. See when you have your running lights on if that one is brighter than the other, if so it is backwards, Otherwise the globe is probably getting old & blackened & need to be replaced.

Engine light flashing cant go pass 30mph, also car shaking.. 05 sts Cadillac


It sounds to me that you have an extreme engine misfire and the engine control computer has gone into "reduced power mode" (The reason for which can only be determined by proper diagnosis).

If your check engine light is blinking, it is the automotive equivalent of posting in bold, underlined, all caps....

it is SCREAMING at you to get your engine control system checked out because you are in the process of DESTROYING SOME VERY HIGH-DOLLAR PARTS OF YOUR CAR!!! (If you have not already done that.)

Sorry I yelled, But I needed to make the point that the light has apparently been unable to make. Get it checked out and fixed ASAP!

My 1998 cady sts is really high in the back looks like it is lifted.... why?


The vent solenoid is stuck closed on the ELC unit (electronic level control). You can replace the vent valve but it is mounted to the ELC unit witch is attached to the rear axle assembly on the top of axle assembly above the right muffler. To temporary level car, disconnect the compressor electrically then disconnect the air line on one of the rear shocks, let air out till car is level put air line back on shock. Thank you

I have a 2003 STS with only 63000 miles and my rear shocks are worn out--is this normal?


If your car has automatic rear air leveling system, no this is not normal, but if you have regular shock's, life time is about 70,000.

They are standard equipment so I can not say were to find cheaper ones. GM has not released the patents on their copyrights so the factory ones are the only ones available to you and everyone else in the whole wide world
