Recieved my stage 1 hotchkis suspension today. I will be bringing my car to get the rear control arm serviced tomorrow due to a sqeaking noise, but should install this weekend:D

I received mine today too! This stuff is no joke. The sway bars are very heavy and should provide a nice improvement in handling. Springs are a little softer than the eibach's I have and also lower the car more. With my larger wheel OD (245/45/18), I may have some problems in the front where the wheel will hit the fender. From what I can tell, these are quality parts. Can't wait to start wrenching!

seriously. The front sway is outrageous.(30mm) I cannot wait to pair this kit up with the 06 strut bar. Are you going to put the springs in at the same time as the sways? How much of a pain are these springs going to be to install? Ive done full coilovers on a jetta, and springs on a 03 gti. Is the caddy going to be much harder?

I'm planning on doing the sway bars first. The springs take about a day to do all four. They aren't too difficult to do but some of the bolts take quite a bit of torque to get off.

I gues I'm kinda glad that I declined when I won...With my Eibachs I cant even pass three fingers between my wheel and fender...anything lower would not work....Enjoy guys....Still haven't put on Eibach sways as yet?
CTS V6 3.6, what size wheels are you running?
