Come one someone has it! I think I have an extra set of them and I want to confirm it. I thought I had bought some F4's from ebay, but when they got here they are the same. I just want to make sure!

Assuming you are referring to the FG2 suspension, the part number is 12499241.

So that is for the entire package! Are the ones I have for sale in the classified the correct ones. I have the part numbers for each if someone can confirm or look at the ad. I'm so confused now!

The standard shocks on the V are the load leveling FE4.

FE4 front shock = 25772236
FE4 rear shock = 25752922

FG2's are the upgrades...

You need FE2 shocks (base V6 CTS non load leveling shocks).

Stealth is the FE4 a nivomat? If not why will the rear of my car not go down?

Yes, FE4 shocks are self leveling Nivomats.

...If the CTS came from the factory with xenon headlights, it has self leveling rear shocks.

But the FE2 is an upgrade? How much should I be selling the new ones for? and the used ones? And what aftermarket can I buy to get the rear down and handle better? I have eibach springs and hoskis sway bars?

The FE2 package is used on the base V6 CTS "sport" model - non leveling shocks (no xenon headlights) and never on a V.

The FE2 is not an "upgrade" for a V owner. The upgraded shocks for a V are the FG2.

Is the muddy water becoming more clear?

:thumbsup: Everything StealthV said and here are some pics of the FE4s that came off my V, plus a pic of the FG2 upgrade shock. Note the black square markings over the purple stripe indicating the upgraded FG2 shocks.

Did it change the way the car handles?

Kind of hard to tell yet. At the same time I changed shocks I also swapped the F1s out to some GSD3s. They are a lot softer and not enough miles on them yet to do any spirited driving.
