    Question I need to get rid of my autoride system, to many $$'s to replace. I need help?

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Ok! Talked with KYB Tech. He said they do not make a rear autoride replacement however, he said if my vehicle had some kind of leaf spring or coil spring to support the vehicle, than I should be able to use an aftermarket non autoride shock and save a some cash!

    My 2002 4X4 Yukon has two large coil springs in the rear and next them or behind are the large autoride shocks.

    This should be a no big deal, right? If so, then I should only need to get the warning light fixed correct?

    You should be able to use whatever replacement shocks are available for Yukons without the Autoride option.

    I'm not familiar with that setup. But if it's like Ford's automatic ride control, there is an actuator motor on top of the shock tower which turns an adjustment knob on the shock. As long as the actuator is plugged in, the suspension computer doesn't know or care if it's actually adjusting the shock, so it doesn't set a warning light.
