    Does it pogo up front (or rear)? Basically, how's the compression and respective rebound?

    Have you driven or riden in other setups to compare?

    I need to meet up with Pat again who has KWv3...hoping some Vs with various suspensions show up to V day.

    I have NOT driven in a V with any coilovers -- and that's the problem I had fo so long and how I started my talk with Louis & Moze of GSS/LG Motorsports.

    and it doesn't pogo at all, it's fimer NOT harsh and no noise.

    I'm planning to run Eagles Canyon on Sat June 11th so I see how it does.
    I've run ECR many times, so it should be VERY interesting...

    Thanks, Jerry. Keep the feedback coming...even the negatives if there are any.

    It will be interesting to see how much these coilovers will drop your times at that track.

    Ill give a 45 day money back guarantee to the first 5 guys that order, that you will not be disappointed with this package. Ill 100% refund the cost of the shocks ( Minus labor and shipping, thats on you) if you are not happy with the product.

    Jerry is coming in for some new LG HD Sway bar endlinks, brake ducts, and a final corner balance mid next week in preparation for Eagles canyon.

    Louis (accidentally) mentioned the brake ducting package that was built and installed at the same time as the coilovers
    There will be a whole separate thread with pictures, details and open track results.

    I'd be interested in hearing recommendations for spring rates for a mostly track application that favors performance all out over comfort/ride.

    Also looking forward to the brake duct progress, etc.

    Re: CTS-V Coilovers from LG Motorsports

    ECR track review:
    Now that I had a chance to look at my videos this is what I think so far of LG coilovers at the track.
    Straights: VERY stable and controlled not harsh.
    Turn in and apex: the V slid abit and tires howled front and back
    ....how much that last track event.. air temps were 90+;s compared to low 80's
    Exiting corners: foot to the floor, no movement, planed firm no Caddy sqworm

    A squeeze developed late in the day, but it sounds to me like a sway bar bushing, need to lube.

    As part of what Louis asked me to do for the coilover build, I'm bring the V back to him next week so he can check out everything post track day.

    DTC 30 pads: WOW much more braking grip than the HP+, I heard/felt the front tires churping a little on hard braking, very little nose drive (due to front springs). Braking: done

    How much suspension travel with this coilover package? Also waiting for pictures of brake duct hats. Thanks for bringing another quality product into the V community.

    Make sure you score a rebuild kit for your shocks...

    I have had mine for a couple yrs and i am rebuilding them as we speak. One shock at a time. The benefit of remote resoviors is better shock control and cooler oil. The down side is you have to find a place for them to sit.

    Play with the spring strengths till you find a balance of what you are lookin for...Currently i am runnin 375 up front and 450 in the rear. It seems weak, but these are Hyperco springs with tight tolerances
