Instead of replacing the autoride shocks, can I use conventional shocks, like bilstiens? I don't really care if I have the autoride feature or not, it's on my 2002 yukon XL 2500. No reason why I can't do this, is there???
Thanks...Kevin

Sure, regular shocks will work just fine, but you'll get a "Service Autoride" message constantly. If that won't bother you, you can just ignore it.

? for Gm-Tech.
I have the Nivomat Self Leveling shocks, but installed a 1 1/2 spacer and the shocks are bottoming out, do they have a reset feature or are they just not meant to be tampered with.

Wrong person. :fume:

If they don't come stock on Chevrolet vehicles, I know nothing about them and I never even heard of Nivomat shocks.

Is it possible to have the "autoride service" warning light disabled?

Not that I'm aware of, but I've never tried.

Sure they do, they come on Tahoes, Sachs Nivomat shocks..they are self leveling shocks, usually black with a yellow label. :flag:

Can't say I've ever seen 'em or heard of them before. And I can't seem to find any information on them in our service information.
