    Need Rear Shock/Strut spacers for eibach drop kit - 04 CTS

    Hey guys I have an 04 CTS 3.6l with the sport luxury suspension, but plan to upgrade to the fe4 (cts-v) shocks (waiting to arrive) along with eibach drop springs which I've had for while now and would already be on the vehicle if it weren't for the already blown shock I have. So I would've gotten the HR kit had I known it wouldn't work as well with the V. So my question is and from what I've seen the fronts will still work no problem but the rear need a custom "spacer" and now am wondering where I can get these spacers. I hear a couple guys on here make them and am not sure how to find them or go about purchasing them. Also is the info provided correct? Can I use all of the parts listed and have it work? I don't have the money just yet for coil overs and already spent on these parts. I also don't do any racing just yet so mostly want for looks and secondary performance. Please help!!!!

    Are the stock shocks elec variable stiffness ala stabilitrak? Are new shocks the same design? I am no 04 model expert. Wondering if ride computer will like different code shocks?

    Stabilitrack is the electronic stability system, not electronically variable shocks.

    The cars computer adjusts the stiffness of the shock. The computer also manages stabilitrak. A 96 era car had elec adjust shocks. It's not new.
