    Hello,

    I have a 2008 tahoe ltz. Recently the "service suspension" message is showing up on the dic. I'm thinking it's coming from the rear. Height sensors are fine. Front struts are already replaced with correct resistors on front. I do not have a tech 2 scanner to check this code. The rear connections to the shocks are fine. I was inspecting the rear shocks and found a hole in the rubber on the boot of the shock. Is it safe to say it's probably the rear shocks that are causing my message? Is it worth it to have the dealer run the code? Thanks

    I am no expert but I would say it is safe to say that is the cause and the perfect place to start. Salt on roads in the winter? Looks like a rubbing chafe opened it up. Notice how it has holes at the same area around it. Gobs of choices at RA depending on the ride RPO code.

    Welcome to the forum from Oregon.


    Based off of taking the number on your shock and crossing it at RA.

    Looks promising to me. Others here will chime in ad may even have already done the same.

    I am curious as to why they do not recommend towing with them.
