2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Am I expecting too much from the FG2s? in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; Finally got 'em in yesterday. Had to modify them with the GC stuff removed from the FE4s, and the Hots ...
Finally got 'em in yesterday. Had to modify them with the GC stuff removed from the FE4s, and the Hots bar in the front meant that I had to kinda do both fronts at the same time (the Hots bar sure doesn't flex much!).
Anyway, the roads were moist, not really wet, so I went to get some milk. It was a mostly docile, traffic-limited three miles there and three back, 45 MPH max.
I came from the FE4 setup and then went go a FG2 + GC 550/600 setup. The difference was night and day. I think your problem is you already had the GC 600/650 setup. You wouldn't notice as much of a change.
The car is firm, no question, and probably due greatly to the Eibachs. Guess I thought it was gonna firm it up another notch. No matter; my wife probably would start noticing, and that would not be good. As it is, the car rides like it should and like someone would expect it to.
Out of the three categories of mods (engine/powertrain, suspension/tires, and bling-bling), seems like this category is usually last on everyone's list ... maybe excluding tires, but only because they wear out. Too bad, 'cause you really do feel like you're on rails ... I like it.
I know you were itchin' for a set of these for quite awhile. After that bad Ebay deal, I thought you were giving up. Anyway, I'm sure you'll get to ring them out soon enough. They must of been a xmas present.
Yeah, I finally recouped my losses on that eBay-deal-gone-bad. Guy was a real scammer.
Now, if the weather would get nice so I could drive it. BTW, I went to document my install in my driver's log, and I noticed that I filled up with gas in early December and you know it still has a nearly full tank.
Milk runs don't count.
FG2's were dseigned on the 'ring.
Go hit some twisties.
The FE4's were underdamped, even with the stock springs.
You may not notice an increase in compression (with your GC springs).
However, the car should have tighter rebound control now, which you will only appreciate when you hit some twisties.
