Strut replacement suggestions '04 LeSabre Limited w/rear air pump

Shocks are shot, rear bottoms out on country lanes, self-leveling air pump not working. Want to replace struts/springs but question what to do with rear. Would rather not have pump replacement expense but need to keep that rear end off the ground with riders in the back seat. Do rear springs lose compression over time? Should they be replaced too?

Chevrolet slumps in Europe

GM subsidiary fails to benefit from rising sales of value brands
Chevrolet - General Motors' best-selling brand globally - is falling further behind rivals in Europe as the region's buyers turn their backs on the marque's aging product lineup.
Chevrolet is positioned as a value-for-money brand in Europe and its Spark/Matiz minicar and Aveo subcompact account for almost half of the brand's volume.
As Europe plunges deeper into economic crisis, car buyers are increasingly turning to affordable smaller vehicles - a trend that should help Chevrolet.
Only it isn't.
Sales of the Spark/Matiz declined 37 percent to 12,245 units from January to April, while the Aveo declined by 44 percent to 10,235, according to figures from JATO Dynamics.
Steep declines of Chevy's best-selling models in Europe pus

June 7, 2013
Every 2014 Buick model – Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore and Enclave – will be offered with a suite of available active safety systems that watch the front, side and rear of the vehicle to help prevent crashes.
Buick will be the only brand in the industry to offer Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Warning, and a Rear Vision Camera on every vehicle.

Automobile: Impala Great Lakes Tour

There are people who believe that you can learn all about a car in a trip to the test track, but we are not among them. We believe in the road, and we don’t mean just the road to the grocery store, either. So when the 2014 Chevrolet Impala came into our hands, we started thinking about a road of some serious distance,

International Engine of the Year 2013

Ford wins Engine of the Year
by Sam Philip
06 June 2013
Inernational engine of the year
What's the finest new engine in the world? The 6.3-litre V12 from the Ferrari F12? McLaren's ballistic twin-turbo V8 that sees service in the 12C?
No and no. According to the important humans who pass judgment upon such matters, the finest powerplant on the planet displaces not even a litre. For the second year in a row, Ford's 1.0-litre, three-cylinder Ecoboost has been crowned International Engine of the Year.
International Engine of the Year: Ford 999c three-cylinder turbo
New Engine of the Year: Volkswagen 1.4-litre TSI ACT
Green Engine of the Year: Fiat 875cc two-cylinder turbo CNG

What if a new brand was released in the US ?

This is completely hypothetical, so be creative with your responses.
What if, instead of the Chevrolet SS being released in the US, Holden was given backing to open their own dealer network, choose their own model range, pricing and advertising.
What if they released the whole VF/WM range with all AU colours and options:
Commodore Evoke - sedan, ute, wagon (fleet/workhorse/rental) @ ~$28K
Commodore SV6 - sedan, ute, wagon (budget sporty) @ ~$30K
Commodore SS - sedan, ute, wagon (budget performance) @ ~$34K
Commodore SS-V - sedan, ute, wagon (luxury performance) @ ~$38K
Calais - sedan, wagon (budget luxury) @ ~$36K
Calais V - sedan, wagon (luxury) @ ~$38K
Caprice V - (prestige luxury) @ ~$44K
What would sell at the price and why ?
Could a solely RWD car company survive or would they need to

Ignoring the poor editing, there's a lot of interesting tid-bits in here if true.
The new 2015 Chevy Volt will come at the start of 2014. with redesigned exterior. He will be built on it’s own dedicated platform, he will have a new engines and he will cost less than his predecessor.
The biggest surprises, the addition of five passenger seating and two available batteries – the standard 16.5 kwh and a new 20 kwh battery with EV ranges of 40 and 50 miles respectively. A new lighter more efficient 1.2-liter generator made in the U.S. delivering 140 horsepower and the much sought after 50 mpg when run in a new eco mode. A new more efficient elec

2000 camaro z28..... possible to put a 1997 lt1 front end? 2000 camaro z28..... possible to put a 1997 lt1 front end?

just pulled out the 2000 z28 for the summer, after driving it for a week,
i came across a 1997 lt1 z28, and really prefer the way that 1997 looked.
i got the 2000 b/c of the ls1 engine (power and reliability), lower miles,
and I don't really want to swap an ls1 into a 1997.
but still trying to get the more "natural", aerodynamic lt1 look.
i think the dash was the same for 1997 and 98-02. what would i need other than lt1 intake,
lt1 hood/bumper/fender/lights? will they bolt on just fine?
i could either find someone with lt1 parts or take an old lt1 car and swap the front ends and flip it for resale with the '02 front end,
and then use the lt1 front end on mine.
my car now:
my goal (this look and ls1 power):

Spied: 2015 Chevrolet Cruze

2015 Chevrolet Cruze
By Viknesh Vijayenthiran
May 15, 2013
Despite only hitting the market in the 2011 model year, the Chevrolet Cruze will soon be updated with an all-new design.
Prototypes for the second-generation model have been spied on several occasions and reveal many telling details about the new compact sedan.
The new Cruze is expected to land in the fall of 2014, making it a 2015 model.
The car will be slightly longer than the current model, with most of the increase featuring in the rear section. This should translate to more space for rear seat passengers and additional storage in the trunk.
Though General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] engineers have attempted to disguise the prototype so that it resembles a Chevrolet Sonic, the car’s dimensions and what we already k

Now that we've seen and driven the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, it's time for their SUV cousins to take the stage. We got these spy shots of the 2015 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL Denali, and Chevrolet Tahoe out testing. They’re expected to follow the pickups to the showrooms in a few months. Despite the oval-shaped medallion in the center of the grille, there's no mistaking these testers for anything out of Dearborn.

Executive Express: 2014 XTS Gains Revamped Grille, More Luxury Executive Express: 2014 XTS Gains Revamped Grille, More Luxury

The first look at the 410 horsepower XTS.
May 13, 2013
By: Nick Saporito
Last month during the reveal of the stunning 2014 CTS, Cadillac also announced that the 2014 XTS would be gaining twin-turbo V-6 power, but they never showed the car. While the new engine is not changing the design of the XTS, it is gaining a new front grille treatment to give the car a more aggressive look.
The above photo is the first photo Cadillac has released of the 2014 XTS that features the grille that will be on the twin-turbo model. The twin-turbo engine is Cadillac's new 3.6-liter featuring 410 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It probably goes without saying that the powerful twin-turbo engine is only available with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic.

The only thing I can think is perhaps it was a typo and should have been 201
Camaro SS. That, or referring to the SS sedan (which receives the LS3, IIRC)... then again, if that were the case, how could the SS sedan get a "Camaro version" of the LT1 if the Camaro doesn't even have it? ;)
