I just purchased a 2009 Cadillac STS with the Northstar V8, AWD and the ISG option that includes Magnetic Ride Control ( Magneride). Both front and rear dampers need replaced. I need to know OEM part no's and where I can purchase thee at a reasonable cost, as I heard the are very expensive at Cadillac dealerships. Ron at***@******.***

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

The car is at a former Cadlllac/ Chev, dealership. They asked me to ty to find the replacements and they are willing to R&R for me.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Service Manager says the two front dampers are leaking and the two rear are shot as the rear bobs up and down with no restriction when you hit a bump in the road surface.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

Have no idea. Just bought the STS with 100,103 miles on odometer
