Just wondering if anyone on this forum has replaced the shocks after installing 20" or 22" rims? If anyone has, what shocks did you replace the oems with? And is there a difference in ride quality? Thanks.
I was not aware of that.MightyMax said:You have to keep in mind that if you have HID headlights that the rear shocks are "special" they do the required auto leveling so you don't blind anybody when you have a "load" (aka passangers in the rear seats or a full trunk) in the rear.
WHERE DID YOU READ THAT! Auto Leveling Rear shocks have nothing to do with Auto-Leveling HID. No 300C has Auto-Leveling Rear. All 300C rear shocks are the same.MightyMax said:You have to keep in mind that if you have HID headlights that the rear shocks are "special" they do the required auto leveling so you don't blind anybody when you have a "load" (aka passangers in the rear seats or a full trunk) in the rear.
In this thread...kampsvilleboy said:The headlamp leveling module and leveling sensors that you are talking about are only on the EXPORT 300's. Unfortunately, domestic models have to make due with a cruder way of making sure the lights don't blind on-coming traffic (shocks and load-leveling system).
See service manual starting page 8L-108.
I agree, still confused myself....catchMEifUcan said:Sorry Max. That is the silliest things I've ever heard.
MightyMaxMightyMax said:So ... either the cars with the HID's get the same shocks as the cars without and we have no way of no blinding on comming traffic. sigh Or do the HID equiped cars have the auto leveling shocks.
Or is short.... Is it safe to change out your shocks if you have HID's with after market that do not do auto-leveling.
I guess to solve this ... lookup the part # for the rear shocks and see if it notes anything about HID or not.
There is only 1 shock for the US 300C RWD cars. It does not matter if you have HID or not. HID "auto-leveling" which is not an option on US 300C's has nothing to do with Load-leveling rear shocks.MightyMax said:It still is on topic....
Has anybody changed there shocks? If you have HID's do you have to keep in mind what kind of shocks (auto leveling or not).
