    They're in the design and testing process. They should have something to test out early this month (based on the word I got from them a few weeks ago).

    I dont mean to steal the thread, but I am in dire need of two of these upper mounts for the FE4 shocks. I bought shocks and they did not come with them.
    PLEASE!!!!

    What rubbish.

    All Vorshlag has to do is make the AST RSM for the C5 available.

    It will directly fit the CTS-V1.

    To give you some background, I contacted Vorshlag early last year looking for a replacement for the PADFT's I had (no longer in production).

    The AST is available, but you have to buy the whole suspension package.

    For some ridiculous reason, the Vorshlag rep accused me of trying to rip off their design.

    You might contact:

    http://store.langracing.com/rear-sho...earings-10-mm/

    Maybe they can build one with the right footprint.

    This guy makes one for the C4 & C5 so it should be a direct fit.

    n case you want to know, spherical RSM's do make a difference. IMO

    Vorshlag doesn't own AST, and doesn't own that part, so that's not their decision to make.

    That looks promising.

    Vorshlag is not AST, but it could request AST sell the mount separate and not tie it to a whole suspension package.

    As far as having to create a special part for the V1, that is BS.

    Spherical RSM's are not rocket science.

    If it fits a C5, it will fit a V1 (rear).

    The only difference from the C5 (CTS-V1) and the BMW and Porsche mounts is the base plate footprint.

    A 10 mm shaft hole.

    Technically, you might even be able to use the MightyMouse plate, if the center hole was adequately sized.

    Perhaps they have and AST said NO?

    Has anyone asked KSport/D2/whoever? Don't their coil-overs come with new top mounts?

    I guess that explains why there's such a glut of these on the market. We were all frothing at the mouth when it was determined that the Pfadt ones would work, but apparently they were discontinued about the time that was figured out. Despite interest from a number of us, I haven't seen any other solutions discussed since then until that Banski link you posted. Apparently it's not a very popular product amongst the Vette guys, let alone our little V community. Even the Banski product is not a sure thing for the CTS - one would have to deconstruct a stock top mount to see if those Banski ones would work. If they don't, you're kind of stuck since you can't order just the top mount from the dealer and there doesn't seem to be an aftermarket replacement.

    I'm talking to the president of Banski and will let you know shortly if the dimensions are correct. If they are correct, I will set up a group buy across CF and LS1Tech.

    Price will be $120 + shipping for 2 mounts if we get 5 people and $90 + shipping for 2 mounts if we get 10 people. Shipping is USPS Priority Flat Rate @ $5. Hope to know more tonight or tomorrow morning.

    D2 coilovers do indeed come with a new rear shock mount.

    Specialized race car parts you need to do a lot of searching for.

    As for RSM, there is a glut, just not a lot for the C5/ CTS-V1, but there are a few.

    The only difference is the base plate.

    You just have to look and in the right places.

    I was lucky enough to get a pair of the PADFTs for the C5 before they stopped making them.

    The dimensions are the same for the CTS-V1 RSM.

    How do I know this?

    The PADFT required you to have a C5 top shock mount to tear apart and use the baseplate for the spherical bearing as they did not include the baseplate.

    That baseplate is the same dimension as required by the CTS-V1.

    I installed it in mine and IT FITS.

    You're welcome for the Banski link.

    Good for you!

    I'll take a pair.

    AST can go pound sand.

    I hate it when a vendor thinks they are doing me a favor selling me their product.

    Good stuff coming. Tom (president) and I have been trading measurements and CAD drawings to ensure a perfect fit. Should have more tonight and tomorrow--my schedule for today is filled with work and grad school.

    Plan on the group buy starting (at the latest) Monday and ending next Friday.

    For information only: CAD drawing of C5 and C4 shock mounts attached.

    C4 eyeball plate drawing includes caliper measurements taken from OEM CTS-V RSM (right side) versus actual C4 plate dimensions (left side). Need to update with measurements taken directly from car body. ETA on measurements: Friday night.
