Title: Standard Shocks and Struts for '98 Concours?
Post by: Scott Bard on November 06, 2007, 05:29:36 PM
I have a mechanic who says you can replace the ride sensor shocks and struts on a '98 Concours with standard ones, but can't find a listing for it.  Anyone out there done it or know what to use?

Thanks,
Scott

When I had a 95 I was told that GM had a kit that replaced the air shocks that included some sort of cable or something to make the dash light go out.  It was more than I wanted to spend and the car rode fine so I just got used to 'service air ride' on the dash all the time.   I ended up trading in the car so I never researched it further.

Thanks TJ

I know about the kit, it's what shocks to use I can't find.

A little quality time on the net turned up this:

I got onto them from Oriley Autoparts site, they listed them as a special order item.

Let us know if you try them and how it works out.  Looks like they have stuff for a bunch of cars.

Hey TJ, thanks for the effort!  I didn't have a clue how to search on it.  Let you know how it goes.
