    Creative steel trailing arm group buy!

    Well, I will take the reins on this one as I would like a set!

    Here is the thread with ALL of the information: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...ng-arms-4.html



    To make it simple for everyone the arms that are for the group buy will be the ones with the spherical bushing (ballistic joint) on the subframe side, and the option of Creative Steel's greaseable bushing on the control arm side or not.

    So fairly simple; All the same arm just plus or minus the bushing on the control arm side (your option).

    Price without bushing :325$

    Price with bushing: 365$

    Prices are SHIPPED!!!

    Once we get ten on the list Max will start building them and then we just need 2 more to complete the group buy! Any simple questions that I can answer feel free to PM me for my phone # as Max lives on the West coast...and I will answer my phone whenever you Forkers call in the wee hours. Plus it will not distract the man from his work building our arms! There will be no payment until we have all confirmed buyers! SO PLEASE! if you're interested cool, but if you decide to commit don't back out and screw the group, thats just no bueno. Lets hope for some interest, and Thank you!-Nik

    I know the pic is in another thread but maybe not a bad idea to have in this one.

    Im sure the will help su substantially with wheel hop as well by keeping the control arm more secure with less ability to move.

    Re: Creative steel trailing arm group buy!

    Hey guys, I thought I would add the pictures and say a few words. This is for the Trailing Arm with a Spherical Bushing on the subframe side(You will see a polyurethane bushing in the pics, as we have not gotten pictures with the SB's). This group buy has only been up since yesterday and is over half way full from users of this forum and LS1. If you are thinking about getting these, I recommend it now, because the price will go up for single purchases after this. Thank you all for having as much excitement for these as we do.

    Here are the pictures from the other thread:

    That is a question for max? I do not know the differences for the sts rear. Maybe post up some picture from under your car would help.

    Max, any idea?

    Beats me, ya...some pictures would help and a stock trailing arm would help even more. Does anyone know where they can get their hands on one?

    I can take pictures under mine. I would think they are. We have the same rear ends. I wouldn't want to buy if they won't work though. If they will ill take a set.

    I just looked a pair of STS arms on eBay. They are not the same at the CTS, and the are listed in two different listings, one for left and one for right. On a CTS the arms are the same (left and right).
    I am not apposed to building the STS arms, then do a group buy for them too.

    Problem would be getting enough interest.

    Your arms look to be left and right specific too?

    I know we share the sigma platform with the v2 no one makes anything for them that I've seen. (BMR UMI or Spohn)

    That thread is a long read and full of BS drama. After some digging the trailing arms from CS look very promising.
