Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille
Best way to check shock absorbers i have found is to push down on each corner of car , very quickly but with most of your weight , let car spring back into position , if car rises fast and dosn't bounce up and down more than once or twice your shockies are o.k , but if car keeps bouncing 3 or more time's they are no good and will need to be replaced .
sometimes the spring that surrounds shockie has worn rubbers these can emit noise also ,
mainly sqeaking but if either shockie or spring is able to hit car body due to perished rubbers then knocking noise will occur.
check also that you dont have a cracked spring , i have seen this also , remove tire and visually inspect.
hope this helps .. good luck
