I posed the question regarding the wheel hop fix bushings and whether they are going to be standard on the 2006 CTS-v at start of production during the launch update broadcast yesterday, and did not get a definite answer, just that the chief engineers were in Germany doing some testing, so will provide more info when it is available.

If they need someone to side step the clutch in Germany, I can have my passport out of the safe in less than a minute and be to the airport in under 30. :D

I have heard the answer to your question is "yes"...

I believe that is the case also, I am just trying to get confirmation from GM. I have looked at the 06 shop manual, and it does not specify which bushing part number is used. I know that was a question for a couple of folks.

'06 shop manual? What's the part number for the rear pumpkin? :thumbsup:

Maybe that testing will include driving steadily at 68 mph and coming up with a fix for the steering wheel/tire shimmy that so many have. Absolutely unacceptable in a $50,000+ MSRP vehicle.
