Should be here by next weekend. I already purchased lowering springs, Z06 endlinks, Cags skip shift eliminator, and uuc shifter. Thomas at hendrix is pricing me out shipping and i should have the axles ordered on monday.
Now I have to hunt for rims.

I'm swapping my specter hood, and front V bumper(no lisence bracket) from my old cts.Also swapping my brand new fe4 shocks and struts, eibach sways, painted headlights, dual weave grill, vouge strut brace(hopefully it fits) rms strut brace, tinted tails, bezel panel, subs and amp, remote start and alarm, stsv fogs, and tinted side markers(I think that covers it), then i'll sell my old cts.

Not sure, I'm still looking. It's not a very rim friendly car, forged are out of my range right now, and the stockers have to go. I got it narrowed down to a few, just have to find out if they infact offer the bolt pattern, some companies I tried that say they offer them, infact do not.

Ahemm, I think you meant to say slowest, but I'll let it slide since its still a V.

:yeah:

But going from a CTS right to a Black V would have been a little too much to handle. It's better he got a slower one so it is easier to adjust.

Actually prefered a silver so I could swap body parts without having to paint my old one before selling. I think my final plans will be to go satin black, although I do like silver.
Just ordered a bmr pinion support brace too. That with the new axles and washer modding the rear craddle, I figure I should be good to go.

silver is by far the fastest and with the ls2 you should be able to trailer your old cts to car shows.
