Customer Question
I have a 2021...

I have a 2021 Escalade. Recently bought tow behind travel trailer w/weight distribution hitch. Car now rides like a tank, w/ or with out the trailer. Any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Escalade?

Is anyone there to help me

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not done anything other than check tire press.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?

Factory tires w/50K miles and no prior problems.

G​ood afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Cadillac technician and I would be happy to assist you with this.

​Have you ever had the shocks replaced on your Escalade? Shock failure is the most common problem on these when they develop the harsh ride you are experiencing. The other thing that can cause it is a failing air compressor, but usually that will illuminate an air suspension light in the dash.

​Let me know if you have any questions about that :)
