96 cadillac deville

I have 22in rims for a 96 deville and i need to raise the rear end so i can fit it without it rubbing on the outside of the wheel wall. what i did so far is the lip ont the outside of the rear i banged it in so the rim dont touch but when its all the way down it locks up and rub. i bought a self-adjusting spacer for the rear spring and i cant get the spring high enough to get them in. is there a way that i can adust the height contol manually so that in can get them in or just get the height without the spacers. my email is www.rastapimp2010@yahoo.com . i have them on right on can u hit me up ASAP with the answer, PLEASE AND THANK YOU....

Locate the ride height control sensor box with a small rod connected to the rear control arm. this rod needs to be loosened and raised about 1 and 1/2 inches, and tightened in place. this will only work if your rear load leveling still works on the car, as the air shocks are pumped up resulting in a lift w/out fuckin up the whole car

Can I put size 215/70/15 tires on a 1991 Cadillac deville


IT SHOULD BE FINE. To check for rub, turn wheel to end and check for clearance. Then the other way. Performance remains at acceptable levels.

I have a 1990 Cadillac Deville with the 4.5. I was curious if that car came with air suspension stock. I noticed a little compressor like thing right be hind the battery turn on when I was jacking it up....


The compressor will turn on when the rear air shocks are low. These shocks will begin to leak with age, and if new, can be damaged if you raise the rear end without disconnecting the battery. The shocks will fill with too much air and create a leak. If your motor runs continuously, you may need to replace the shocks. May also have a leak in the air hose going to the compressor. Check the fitting. Short fix would be to disconnect the power going to the compressor, but your ride will suffer.

Jaguar x type 19" alloy wheel upgrade but rear wheels rub on arch


I really don't think you will be able to use those rims and tires, probably the biggest is going to be 18" wheels. The 8.5" rim is too wide. An 18" came as the stock size on the sport package for the Jag, it's 7.5 wide. I don't think who sold them to you really knew if they would fit or not. Without wheel spaces and raising the suspension, I don't think they'll work on the car.
