Best thing to do is take it in for a 4 wheel alignment. There is always a chance that a part is wearing out, or has been bent.

2005 cadillac front end thumping noise

That's a tough one since there can be so many different causes, starting with something loose under the hood to a problem with the suspension (sway bar links, control arm bushing, ball joint, strut mount, motor mount, etc etc). This can be a serious safety issue, so if it were my vehicle, I would first get to a dealer or alignment shop right away to have the front end suspension, tires and wheels checked.

We have a 2005 Cadillac SRX with 78K on it. The car just began experiencing a heavy rear end vibration at higher speeds. Had a dealership check and rebalance all four tires and checked the rims for...

Many tire problems will not sow up on a wheel balancer. It is possible that there is an internal problem with the tire like a belt separation. The best way to determine this is to move the tires fron to rear one side at a time to see if the vibration moves to the front.

Vibrations can be caused by many other things as well, including bad/worn suspension bushings, defective shocks or struts, drive line parts worn or binding, or even a brake rotor that is damaged or is way out of balance.

Since you mentioned having taken it to the dealer, it raises this question:
Did you take it to them and ask them to DIAGNOSE the vibration? Or did you take it to them and tell them to check the wheel balance and alignment?

Many times, the vehicle owner takes the car into the shop and tells the mechanic what to test based on what the customer thinks is wrong with the car. The mechanic is the one who should be deciding what tests need to be performed, however, many time he does not know what problem the car owner is experiencing because the car owner prescribed the test, rather than describe the symptom.

I am not saying that this is true in your case, but it seems to me that the mechanic should have been checking other things if he had checked the wheel balance and alignment and the symptom still existed. You should not have gotten your car back without some explaination of what the cause of the problem is, unless the mechanic was only doing what you told him to do.

I was just told that on my 2005 cadillac SRX that my left front speed tensioner is bad, and the left side motor mount is broke. I bought the vehicle 10 mos ago with 55k on it and it has 60 now. I was told...

That [ I've never heard it called a tensioner ] is the ABS brake sensor on that wheel. It's hard to tell about the mount, but it's very rare to have one go with out it being in a major accident- [ but it can happen ].

No its not and will cause a problem in the long run. The dealer should have sent the repair out to a local muffler shop for welding. Go back to dealer and make them do it, or tell them you are going to call the local GM zone manager!

My 2004 Cadillac SRX has intermittent pinging or

The pinging noise that you hear is detonation occuring in one or more of the cylinders. The dealer suggested to move to a higher octane inorder to prevent this because the higher the octane the higher the prevention of Detonation.

The Probable cause of the pinging, would be that you refilled with a bad batch of gasoline. Premium should be used in this vehicle no matter what. Due to the clearances of the heads and valves in the motor. And also due to the material used to make the cylinder heads, if severe detonation occures then the valves could be damaged.
