Default ELC/CCR to standard?

ok so my SSEi has the elc/ccr as far as i know they are both broken cause the back end sags and i pulled like 4 codes from the ccr, i dont wanna spend the time or money fixing systems that quite frankly i dont need or want, so can standard struts fit the ssei?

ELC is an integral calculated part of your suspension. It adds spring rate to your rear springs by design. Fix that, ditch the CCR.

SE springs are WEAKER, but have a taller install height. You will severely imbalance your handling.

Get the Monroe Sensatrac'* with ELC for the rear. They're not expensive. But how about we troubleshoot your ELC to find out why the butt sags?

We diagnosed 2 at WCBF and fixed one later. The other is simply tempermental like a little girly

Easy enough to diagnose with the knowledge and usually easier to fix than replacing springs

Somethin' about a white bonnie and a saggy butt

Does you ELC pump run? Does it sound like a diesel engine when it does?
