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.

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

Rear shocks (van 150000 miles) originals still on Recently installed 2.2 Legacy Engine people sugges KYB gas shocks I have Biltiens *new) on front


Bilsteins are about the best shocks you can buy.

With those miles (150000) on the van I would have also replaced all 4 springs and all 4 shocks., It is stupid to put new shocks on the front and leave worn out shocks on the rear . - The rear shock absorbers should also be replaced with new items.
(Springs are inexpensive to replace so I am surprised you did not renew them because it should be done. The old ones will have sagged significantly by now.)

My 2003 oldsmobile bravada back end sits very low. Its either my strut or shocks.My question is, for this model, are the rear shocks coil or air springs?


The shocks do not set ride Hightower. The leaf springs set ride hieght in the rear. So ether the leaf springs are worn out or the shackles that hold the springs to the frame are broken (should be very obvious if they are). Most likely the rear leaf springs are the problem.

Replace the throttle position sensor then. Am pretty certain that's the problem.

You might have it checked for codes too. Sometimes codes are stored that do not cause a CEL, but give clues as to what is failing.

Rear end sways real bad in the rain


Shocks, they only have a life of around 80,000 miles and the bushings on the shocks could also be worn if they don't have that much miles on them. Most places have life time replacement warranty as long as you keep the receipt, so every 80,000 miles you just have to pay for the labor unless you do the job your self. Good luck and hope this helps. remember you get what you pay for so don't buy the cheap shocks since there life time yuo'll really only have to pay for them once.

Reverse doesn't work


Worn clutch plates. Reverse & first gear uses the same clutches so how is 1st gear running out as you drive off? Slips a little?
