Hello everybody I just picked up my 2012 CTS-V Coupe White diamond with black recaro seats. I have recently installed Eibach springs, took everyones advice reading post and cut 5" off the front springs. Love the front stance but now contemplating if cutting back springs to give more of a level drop. Has anyone done it ? Just added tint today went 5% windows and back and 35% on front windshield (yes its illegal)

here are a couple of pics...

Next mods:
Plasti dip ( grill, possible chrome trimming ) ANY ADVICE?>

V looks great but i personally don't like the low riders and especially on a car like this where you have the touring (luxury) option why lower it :) GM probably put a lot of hours getting the suspension to where it is just right when i get mine i am not touching the suspension but your car looks good

Totally think the V needs to come lowered from the factory. Sits like a 4x4 stock. Even lowered the ride is so much improved its my favorite mod to date. More than the 100 RWHP added (although that is awesome too).

I love the looks as well as the performance aspect, BUT now the squeaking has begun !!

If you speak of the dreaded suspension squeak, you need to pull the front sprin/shock assembly apart/out and cut the bumpstops down and remove the dust cap. It is the magic forumla to make the lowering noise free.
