    If you have a 2004-2005 V without these you should consider adding them. They tighten up the rear cradle, which improves handling - especially on exiting corners. They also mitigate wheel hop.

    Here is the installation instructions in the FAQ.

    If you wanna show off. Do a second gear side step, and watch the smoke no hop.
    On the street, they improved the handeling on my car big time.

    For what your buying (four pucks), it seems like a lot of money. But for the results you get, it's a very cheap mod on a V.

    Well, I have had the GM wheel hop fix installed and now it squeaks bad. If I got this Specter bushing package would it get rid of the newly installed squeaky GM bushings that cam with the GM fix? Or would this just fit inside the GM poly bushings and still be all sqeaky?

    Thanks, Jeff

    The GM wheel hop fix involves add-on bushings to the existing bushings which are retained. So, to install the Specter Works bushings you remove the GM add-ons, keeping the underlying OEM bushings, and substitute the Specters add-ons.

    They usually do it for free. But from what I've heard, it's not worth it.
    Guy's, if I get the axles, I still wouldn't take out the bushings, just for the handling benefits.
    When you talk about value, its deff the best mod I've done.
