    Revshift Front Control Arm Bushings for CTS/CTS-V

    We are happy to announce that the front upper and lower control arm bushings for the CTS and CTS-V are now available for purchase on our website.

    These bushings have been installed on our R&D car for a year now and they are doing great.

    Revshift polyurethane control arm bushings completely replace the oem rubber bushings on the 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2003-2007 CTS. These bushings stiffen the control arms improving the vehicles handling capabilities.

    - Improves handing
    - Will not wear out like oem bushings
    - Properly dampens the front upper control arms
    - Teflon prelube included
    - Lifetime warranty

    Re: Revshift Front Control Arm Bushings for CTS/CTS-V

    Have you, by chance, checked the durometer of the stock bushings? I'm curious how the 80A compares.

    Stock bushing rubber is typically around 65A hardness.

    Ordered mine last night! Thx revshift! I hope some of the early buyer's get theirs installed and publish opinions on these online before mine arrive (int'l shipping).

    And who's doing (done?) the write-up for the front upper/lower control arm bushings remove/replace procedure? :-)

    Ordered fronts. Rear cradle and UCA bushings definitely assist in planting the rear suspension, and ride quality with the 80 durometer bushings has not degraded.

    My DIY toe rod bushings are still functioning properly.

    Thanks. I was hoping you had actually tested these, as I've seen pretty wide variations in rubber bushings, including some with Shore ratings up into the high 70s and low 80s in performance applications.

    Everyone seems to love revshift, I'm hoping they are correct. I ordered lower control arm bushing 4 days ago. I have left 2 voice-mails and 2 emails inquiring about my order. No one has returned calls or emails to me. Anyone else have this issue with poor customer service?

    We are two guys making all these parts. We don't always have a chance to answer the phone. We return messages in the order they were received. Unfortunately, I don't know who you are so hopefully I can return your call shortly if I have not already done so.

    I just took a look at our system here and it looks like all of the lower control arm orders have been shipped. You should have received a tracking number in your email.

    I haven't received the email with tracking number. It's order 1249-0940. I was getting worried not hearing anything for four days with a company I'm just starting to work with. Thanks for responding.
