Question about 1992 Cadillac Seville

2 Answers

I need the instructions for change of suspension system from electronic to passive, for my 1992 Seville

I had shocks and struts changed recently, then car was very ******* rough roads, as if no shocks or struts are there. Discovered that I should have got the whole conversion set, But I don't need the whole thing, I just need to know what to do to make them work passively and how to switch the air compressor off

If you are trying to eliminate the air ride.
Then you should buy a conversion kit that trades our the rear air shocks to standard shock and then just unplug the air pump. And insome cases they sale a bypass adapter to make the air ride light go off.
But the down side is it will never be as smooth as air ride.
I would suggest that you make sure your rear springs mounts are not rusting thru and install the correct oem air shocks was installed

But if you are trying to install the aftermarket universal air shock then you must install a air valve that you can manually add air because the air compressor does not work properly with the aftermarket shock

I have also modified the length on the air ride level sensor rod to different lengths to I gauge the pump to a different ride height. But you must be careful not to allow the shocks to build to much air pressure. The rod I made was adjustable. I do not suggest doing this. It was just something I tried and it worked for me but it has to be perfect.

    Shocks


    1992 Toyota Celica is not equipped with front "shocks". This vehicle is equipped with front wheel drive and independent MacPherson strut front suspension. Any repairs made to this system requires the removal of the entire strut assembly, which includes the strut, the coil spring and upper strut bearing assembly.

    Replacement of any of the parts of the strut assembly requires the use of specialized equipment designed to compress and hold the coil spring to relieve the tension on the strut and upper bearing assembly.

    Any attempt to disassemble the strut assembly without the proper equipment for compressing and securely holding the coil spring can result in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH.

    Does This Car Have Rear "Struts" Or Shocks?? What Is the Difference?


    THe 93 Mazda has both actually. The shock absorber in this car is just one component of the so called strut assembly. Read on if you want the details: Shock absorbers are simple suspension dampers that control the unwanted spring motion of the vehicle's frame caused by the suspension's springs. Struts, or strut assemblies, basically does the same thing, although they are used on a different type of suspension system and performs another function, which is to provide support for the suspension system.

    A strut assembly is composed basically of a shock absorber unit, a coil spring, an upper pivot, and a lower control arm. A lot of vehicles today make use of strut assemblies instead of simple shock absorbers for the suspension system. The most popular of these strut assemblies is the MacPherson Strut for the front suspension and its rear suspension counterpart, the Chapman Strut.

    Mazda vehicles are well known for their sporty looks and performance, amazing a lot of auto critics when they accelerate on paved streets and highways. Mazda vehicles, however, also has the capability of running on an off-road track without affecting the comfort that Mazda passengers feel; thanks a lot to the high quality Mazda struts they are equipped with. Original Mazda struts are guaranteed to provide every Mazda passenger a pleasurable ride, whatever kind of trail they may choose to traverse.

    I need shocks, they have never been replaced in 107K miles. Does this car have 4 shocks or 2 shocks and 2 struts


    Thr front will be MacPherson struts, a shock absorber surrounded by a coil spring looking set-up.


    FOR THE REAR:
    If you have front wheel drive and you have Electronic Ride Control (ERC), then the rear suspension has "super lift air shocks".

    If you have all wheel drive, then you have struts in the rear suspension.

    Does help any?

    i would check your front struts. when your struts are bad your car will tend to pitch and roll a lot more, and even something as simple as turning a corner can activate the stabilization function. also check the recalls for the cts. there is one out there that affects the front suspension that could have a bearing on your problem.
