    Where did you order the lugs from ? I just had my CV2 s installed and like you said the rear ones stick out

    Thanx

    With the deep concave on rears the standard lug nuts were flush on fronts and stuck out on the rears so shorter lugs sit in the wheel a little better.

    I did just nuts and they look pretty good. Not flush like fronts but close

    I have CV1's on mine...20x9 all around. b/c when i called they didn't make them 20x10.

    10.5's will poke out a little...

    if u need exact offest info just call vossen.


    the CV3's can do 20x10

    Your car is gorgeous. One of the best looking CTSs I've seen, V, Coupe, Wagon or otherwise.

    Well done!

    Im running BC coilovers...
    They come really low even at their highest setting but i like the stanced look. Right now I have the front a little higher than what you see in the picture i posted just to make sure i dont mess up the fender if i hit a bump turning.

    I highly suggest getting someone who is experienced to install coilovers. I went to a shop where the guys misleadingly said they knew what they were doing and they totally screwed it up and the ride was bouncy as helll..

    LUCKILY... BC racing is located here in Orlando so i just went to their shop and the fixed it with pretty good customer service.

    Now it rides smooth as stock with a lower stance and better handling.

    H&R's sit flushed in the rear but have some space in the front slightly lower than stock

    I originally had H&R springs which looked and drove great. But the only way to get the car look i wanted was with coils or bags.

    Thanks for the feedback. I thought I read elsewhere that's what you had. I am running Eibachs with almost 2 coils cut
    Look = amazing
    Ride = shit

    After my research I think the BCs are the way I'm gonna go too

    Re: Sedan CTS Vossen CV3s matte graphite on black

    o yea...json3144

    if your going to get coilovers..make sure they throw in the Damping extenders for the rears...

    so that you can adjust the damping without removing your rear seats...

    the dampers in the front are under the hood and extremely easy to adjust..

    its should be $40 or free with the set...

    Re: Sedan CTS Vossen CV3s matte graphite on black

    So I ordered the BC coilovers new from them, got the shop ready to install today and it appears they sent a setup for a RWD CTS, I have an AWD indicated in my order to them.... Is yours RWD or AWD?

    of course they are closed today, Saturday

    Thanks
