I have a 1997 Cadillac Seville STS with 78,000 miles on it. Itis in beautiful shape except I think it needs new shock absorbers. I was told that this model of Cadillac has electroic shocks and it would cost almost $5000 to replace teml. If I replaced them with non electroic shocks it would mess up the electircal system. Is this correct? Is there an alternative? I only drive the car 1500 miles a year.

You can replace these shocks/struts with conventional replacements. There are companies that sell these, along with devices to plug into the electrical connectors that will keep the message from coming on your dash. There are no negative side effects if it's done properly.One of the companies that sells replacements like I'm talking about is Strutmasters.com. They will have all of the information you need there, and your mechanic can source them there, too.
