Many drivers of big trucks enjoy the more precise handling that a harder suspension can provide, but that is not likely to be the case with Cadillac Escalade buyers. From a vehicle that costs $90,000 and with the Cadillac logo on it, the typical Escalade driver is expecting a smooth and comfortable ride. The Consumer Reports
test of the Escalade last fall mirrored customer complaints about the vehicle, so GM issued a technical service bulletin for the Escalade as well as the Chevrolet Tahoe, the Suburban and the GMC Yukon Denali. CR acknowledged the GM fix
, but says the ride improvement is underwhelming.
Arnott Industries, as you might expect, has risen to the challenge of finding a solution to the manufacturer's engineering troubles. They are working on an aftermarket replacement for the newer Escalade's magnetic ride control suspension. Our customers who have earlier Escalade models will sometimes purchase the Arnott complete GM shock and compressor replacement kit
that provides a softer ride, though just as often will opt for a coil spring conversion kit
, also from Arnott, because ultimately it gives less trouble. This kit also includes Arnott's cutting edge technology to reliably eliminate dash panel fault codes.
