Default CCR strut replacement

Ok i want to replace my struts but I do not want to put in aftermarket struts. I want the CCR. I found some good used ones from a 99 ssei and would like to know if those struts are a direct replacement for my 94 ssei. Thanks so much.

Hold on to that thought for a bit. I need to do some cross-referencing. I seem to recall some slight differences in suspension and braking between 94/99. Let me get back to you after I get home later tonight. I can tell you for certain by part number if they'll swap. I forgot to bring my magic book to work again.

Since the struts aren't made anymore, this is the best I can do. I do want to keep the factory option. My dad checked the part numbers and they are the same and also called gm parts counter and they confirmed. Too late anyhow, I already bought them and they are on the way.

Sounds good. Let us know how it works out. BTW, Bill'* Magic Bonneville Book confirms that they are the same part number too.

Are you replacing CCR'* with CCR'*? The reason I ask is I would be interested in one of your rears. I want to connect a working strut to my LR wiring to verify whether I have a bad strut or if it'* wiring or controller. Testing is telling me I have a bad strut actuator. I want to keep my CCR'* too and I have located a pair of new rears, but they are costly and I don't want to go that route if I have other problems.

ccr is short for computer control ride. NVSSEI, I am replacing ccr'* with ccr'*. One of the struts wasn't filling with air but I mickey moused the thing and sealed it up tight with a plastic wire tie. After that my error code emitting from my two RIDE buttons went away. Let me know if you want those struts.
