    sssnake are you just pulling bolts on each side and dropping one side at a time?

    Gonna reseal the 8.8 (darn cover leak is annoying me) and I think I will just wait it out so when I throw it on the lift for that I will change all the bushings I can get my hands on in the back.

    Nope. All four cradle bolts removed but I only had time to get one bushing done before putting the car back together.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Is there a symptom of bad cradle bushings? Is it a feeling that your chassis is sliding or wiggling on a sharp turn?

    The only symptom is wheel hop under hard acceleration, and that symptom is present when the car rolls off the assembly line. I don't recall any report of "worn out" cradle bushings on this forum regardless of mileage.

    It is typical in setting up a street car for competition to replace every soft bushing with a stiffer bushing.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Nice one! You made me laugh out loud. It seems like an awful lot of work. I will order a whole kit when they release everything, but I think I'll pass on the cradle bushings for now.

    Only the lower shock bushings and the two rear diff bushings are left for us to make. The shock bushings will be available soon. The rear diff bushings are tricky but we are working on it.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Uh yeah.......I'm hoping for front upper and lower control arm bushings any strut bushings, front sway, toe link etc. Plus everything in the back! I emailed you guys yesterday and told you there is like 3-5000 V1' s and I will buy a whole cars worth of bushings. I'm sure a whole lot more will too! I bought my car with 102K on it and now put 20K on it in one year and want to know that I can buy your stuff and know what my car was like in 07 and even better with your product. I will own this for life as it was an engineering marvel for Cadillac and an American car for the ages. The V2 built off of that. I very well might buy one of them too for that reason. This car is beyond "Halo". If you build it and commit, I will buy it!

    I was referring to the rear end only. We are coming out with all of the front end bushings as well. Very soon, in fact.

    We aren't unsure about making these parts. They are definitely on the way. Its just a matter of keeping up with all the current orders and building stock so that we don't fall behind again like we did these past couple months.

    Awesome. Thanks for confirming.

    I know it's kind of an "out there" idea, but I'd love a set of poly door, hood, and trunk seals, if such a thing could be made.

    This is great news! I am going to start replacing all of them one by one!
