Question about 2006 Cadillac SRX

1 Answer

My mechanic installed new shocks on the rear of my 06 SRX that did not have the air bag. I now have a message on my display screen that limits my speed to 80. Do I have to install the right shocks or is there another fix.

Why did you not install the correct shocks.Cost is high, but its a Cadillac, they dont make them with cheap parts, if they did, it would be a chevy. I dont think there is a fix.

I added air shocks to my 1995 lincoln town car because the air suspension bags died. what pressure should they take and do they lose air so you have to add air?


The Stock Air Bags self Leveled, your new System should have come with PAperwork or is there a Air Nozzle that you have to fill? The Bags should come with a Pressure Window for a Firmer Ride or Softer Ride.

How to repair licoln town car rear suspension


early 90's Lincoln town cars have rear air bag suspension and are very prone to failure. cost of one air bag is well close to 250 dollars.

this is a inexpensive fix for that issue. it is possible to install coil spring in replace of the air bags. you will lose the air ride but the cost will be under 100 dollars for both compared to 500 dollars for air ride replacement bags.

the coils that fit are the same year grand marque ford/mercury cars. so when ordering you order for same year as you car grand marque rear springs,

after market or even dealer cost under 100 dollars. they come will the spring seat as the set.

the repair is raise vehicle and support with jack stands. disconnect the lower shock mount so that it allows the rear axle to travel down. this will need to be done for the instillation of the new replacement springs.

next you will need to disconnect the air lines that go to each air back and pull the clips holding the top of the air bag into the chassis of the car. the bottoms float free so this is all that holds them in the car.

remove the air bags out of vehicle and tie air line up and away out of the travel of the car.

install the new spring seats on the rear axle and upper chassis mount.

install the spring top first. you may need to have an assistant pull down on that side of the rear axle to get enough clearness to get the bottom in the seat. you may also try jacking up the opposite side so the side you are working on travels down easier.

after both sides are in there upper and lower seated position.

jack up on the rear axle to install the lower shock mounts back in there original position. after done lower vehicle and recheck all seats to insure they are properly seated. if so you have completed the repair.

this will take no more that two hours start to finish. if you are familiar with a car it may take even less time.

Shock absorbers


If you are mechanically inclined it should not be too hard to replace your car's shocks. You just need to make sure you properly jack the car up for safety and have the right tools.

Can i replace rear air suspension with shocks on 2000 town car


I have learned from experience. I replaced the air bag suspension ($75) on my 2000 Town Car and then learned that I had a problem with the compressor. Then decided to replace system with coil springs. Went on ebay and got a conversion kit (Air Ditcher) that included the shocks ($123) with free shipping. My mechanic replace the bags with the coils for $40. He said that with the shock replacement it would be $120 because the top of the rear shocks were hard to get to. So the whole job should have cost $163. No more worries!

DOES 1996 LINCOLN HAVE AIR BAGS IN FRONT? IS IT HARD TO CONVERT THE REAR TO SPRINGS?


No. The Lincoln Continental does not have air bags in the front. It is not exactly hard to convert the rear airbags to springs. It is more time consuming than anything. I have a 1996 Town Car, I had a mechanic replace the air shocks with springs.

Instructions for replacing shocks & struts


Ok first off if the vehicle is equipped with air ride you need to turn the air ride off or you will blow out the rear bags when the rear is off the ground.

For the front Remove the wheel. Take off the upper shock nut. Now remover the two lower retaining nuts. Compress the shock and pull it out. Install in reverse order. Before installing the new shock push the piston completely down and allow it to return. Do this 2 to 3 times.

For the rear remove the wheel support the rear end with jack stands at the jack points. Now use your jack (not a scissor jack) and place it under the rear diff to support the rear diff. If you have another set of jack stands use them and support the rear axle as it sits.

Remove the lower shock bolt. Now remove the two upper shock bolts and the shock will come right out.

I have a 99 ford expedition i replaced the air compressor cause the front air shocks were bad and ruined the compressor. and teh rear air bags went flat now that the new compressor is in the rear wont air...


I have a 2001 Expedition, I don't have air bags in the front, the compressor don't work the air shocks. You have rear leveling. When they replaced the (compressor) did they turn the leveling switch back on. you may have air shocks connected to the compressor. Did the rear go down right after or over a couple of days. If the switch is on, turn it off and jack the rear up quiet a bit, make sure both side are quiet equal with each other, like it would be if it where raised by the air bags. Turn your level switch back on with it jacked up or sitting on stands. It may have went down so much that the compressor can't raise them back up.
