    Yeah, this bearing issue seemed to only affect CTS-V kits somehow, and it seemed like a damn plague for a while.




    I sent my maggie back to get rebuilt on a Tuesday of a holiday week and I had it delivered back on that Saturday. I did make them understand the urgency of my getting my daily driver back in a running condition so they paid for 2-day air shipping from PA to CA and back.

    Same with me, I got it back the same week. Unfortunately, they had Cowans for a few weeks.
    When did you buy yours?

    My theory is: Bad bearings and/or poor design and/or bad manufacturing process. Only Magnuson knows for sure.

    Good luck, and sorry for your delay. If it's any consolation, they'll make it right again, and you'll be driving your car in short order.
