    Re: After my Revshift Red Cradle Bushing install

    I had my car tuned at Zip Corvette near Richmond, VA. They had a CTS-V diff that they had built up for a road racer, and then the guy skipped out on the project. They told me they had to order parts directly from Getrag, and that it came to a couple thousand bucks. I'm not sure if that included the gears themselves (they had gone to 3.90s or 3.91s, something like that), but even if it did, that's ridonkulous.

    yea no joke, if one is willing to spend 2-3g's on prepping the stock rearend, might as well go with something beefier..

    isnt that a question we should be asking you? lol.. from what ive read, the diffs should not need shims and are shipped as working units without shims.. BUT you can shim the pinion to change lash.. from what ive read. im not sure they would be making those parts there??
