    newbie suspension question

    Hi All

    I'm New Here And Looking At Buying A 2009 Or 2010 Cts V. When I Find One I Want To Do Suspension Mods. My Question Is What's Out There What To Get And Stay Away From. I'm Looking To Lower It And Be Able To Takes Turns And Bumps Very Well.

    Thanks, Keith

    These cars handle so well, there are few options on the market. Much fewer than the earlier generation V. Springs are about it. Most work well, but som modding is often needed to control squeaking. Nothing crazy, though....

    The D3 lowering springs are excellent. They will drop the stance nicely and still retain the Magnaride. For the street, there is nothing better. I had them on both of my V's. Now my sedan is track only, so JRi coil overs are the best, but for the street, the springs and sways are the best.

    I'd drive it a while, and see where YOU want to make changes. Like was said, nothing needs to be done until you overdrive the factory setup.
