    You could order a set from BANSKI and ask for a couple of extra eyeball plates and split the order (the set from Banski is for front and back Vette) with someone else.

    About $300 for the set so I figure the extra plates might be at the most $50.00 extra.

    So...

    I figure about $175.00 a pair.

    The predicted price is $120 plus shipping in the group buy. And the package will include Grade 8 / Class 10.9 hardware, selected specifically for the CTS-V through-holes, which the C4 kit doesn't include.

    Prototype is on order and being fabricated. Will have installation pictures in the next week or so; group-buy to follow if fitment is good.

    The spherical rod end shock mounts would definitely be more of a track thing, right? Not something one would want on their daily driver... are they?

    For my daily driver I was thinking about just using Creative Steel lower rear shock mounts, and the Mighty Mouse plates without the spacers on the top. But if spherical rod end mounts wouldnt be too harsh, I could see myself getting a set.

    If you want to get rid of the rubber band suspension, then yes.

    They also make the rear shocks work like they are supposed to.

    They don't make the ride any harsher or softer, just makes the car more "planted".

    I am all about getting rid of the flex and wiggles and sponginess. Planted sounds good. I like planted. I still need to find V1 chassis braces.

    I have replaced everything in the rear and added a KW suspension.

    BMR toe rods and trailing arms (more rubber band stuff gone).

    My V is like a big go-cart.

    My plan is to replace all the squishy rubber bushings with Creative Steel and RevShift poly bushings. And get pretty much everything BMR offers (toe rods, trailing arms, pinion brace, anti wheel hop kit). Looking at getting a one-piece aluminum driveshaft so I dont have to worry about flex discs anymore.

    I was SO excited when I found the Ultra Racing chassis braces, but after a couple emails, I found out they are actually for V2's, even though they advertise for the 2007 model year. Now I have no idea who makes V1 under belly braces. Does anyone still offer a V1 rear strut tower brace?

    I want this thing rigid. No uni-body flex. No rubber band suspension. But it still needs to behave well as a daily driver.

    IMO forget the pinion brace and wheel hop kit.

    If you are gonna get into clutch dumping spring for one of the rear end replacements and get it out of your system.

    I got the CF one piece driveshaft from the Driveshaft Shop.

    Bitchin.

    The prototype has arrived. Check out the draft instructions--it should give you a good idea of how it fits together. I will be installing it this weekend and providing feedback to Tom, both on its fitment and the manual. If things are good, I'll run a group buy immediately for you guys. Expect more pictures later.

    Progress, starting from removing the stock RSM located on the KW Variant 3:















    We're in the process of doing a couple of minor tweaks to sizes, spacing, etc.
