    Group Buy on Spectre Bushings

    There seems to be some renewed interest in a group buy on these so we'll try to get it going again. Spectre doesn't have a lot of room for negotiation on these bushings but they are willing to discount them if we can get a group together to buy them at one time.

    I believe that some members bought these bushings for $225.00, they have since raised their price to $250.00. If we buy them in multiple quantities I can get the price back down to $225.00, which is a 10% or $25.00 savings. This price is through us, if you call Specter directly they will charge you $250.00.

    I'll keep a list here of who is interested and we'll order them through Specter and have them delivered to us and then bill and ship them to everyone that wants a set.

    For those of you interested in labor, contact me directly through e-mail. We can work something out.

    In case anyone hasn't seen this yet, I've attached a picture of the Spectre bushing sitting next to the OEM bushing. You'll notice there is quite a difference.

    I'd like to close out this out by next week, so please let me know ASAP...

    James,Add me to the list for the Spectre group buy. I would also like to have a UUC shifter purchased/installed at Lindsey. Could you provide parts/labor pricing for both?

    Re: Group Buy on Spectre Bushings

    James, can I ask you a question?

    I am ordering an 06. In your opinion and based on the 06 cars you have seen, is this a good insurance policy to have them installed when I get the car? I hear the 06s are not hopping as much, but I figure it could only help what little hop they may have.

    So in other words, if I install a set in the 06 will they harm anything?

    Oh, and I will be ordering the car with the RSAs.

    If you feel they might help, then put me on the list for the group buy.

    From what I can see there is really no difference between an 05 and an 06 in this aspect. We haven't had the rear suspension/cradle apart on an 06 yet, but we have done some inspecting of an 06 and there wasn't a noticeable difference.

    Installing these bushings will certainly not harm anything and IMHO will only aid in eliminating wheel hop.

    With all that being said... I'm putting you on the list...

    Only one more person to get this confirmed... however, more people might equal less cost...

    James:
    I too am in on the Specter bushings at $225. Please add me to the list and let me know when they arrive as I have to visit you to pick-up that 5'th CTSV alloy accessory wheel that you ordered for me as well. I will drop off the OEM CTSV wheel that you requested at the same time. You can email me if you have any questions directly at:
    sales@cadillacowners.com

    regards - Pete Raimondi
