So as stated in the other thread here: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2004-2007-cadillac-cts-v-performance/241681-wide-wheels-rubbing-your-trailing-arms.html I'm going to be building these for forum members.

Prices include US shipping:

LEVEL .5 : $225 ($150 when core refunded) Sets In stock: 0
Stock arms with Ballistic Fabrication flex joint. No kink, fits stock wheels. Powder coated in your choice of: Black, Silver, White, Clear (natural metal color), or Burgundy

LEVEL 1 : $200 ($125 when core refunded) Sets In stock: 1
Stock arms with stock bushings. Mild kink in the arm for 19+" x 10" wide wheels to easily clear. Only the best cores I get will use this option as I want you guys to have good factory bushings. These might be limited in supply because I'm not going to sell arms with rotten bushings. Check with me before sending the paypal. Painted black rather than powder coated because I can't put the parts in an oven with the rubber bushings.

LEVEL 2: $350 ($275 when core refunded) Sets In Stock: 1
Stock arms with Ballistic Fabrication flex joints (beefy!!!). Mild kink in the arm for 19+" x 10" wide wheels to easily clear. Powder coated in your choice of: Black, Silver, White, Clear (natural metal color), or Burgundy (those are the powders I got :))

LEVEL 3: $TBA
Will be custom arms, for those wanting to run much wider wheels. I don't have anything wider than 10", so I have no idea yet how much it will take to make ridiculous wheels fit. If anyone has any other wheel sizes they are interested in fitting, let me know and I'll see if I can make it work. Right now, I think most people are just having problems with the Linea Corse wheels fitting.

CORE REFUND: $75 Sets In Stock: 0
Sell me your cores! I need these to keep this going. Even if you aren't buying arms.

If you are interested in a set, there will be a little queue here and status updates on how many cores I have, how many I need, and general progress reports. Keep in mind guys, I have a day job, a slow core supply chain, and a small shop. Order time will be lengthy, but you will get your parts.

First come, first served. Paypal to [email protected] with your forum handle, color request (for level 2) and whether or not you will have a core coming back. Please put this in the notes in paypal!!! It helps me keep track of who got theirs in the forum. No need to PM, my box will just become overrun. I'll update in this thread.

ORDER QUEUE
1. FuzzyLogic (thanks for all you've done man!) - Level 2
2. rand49er - Level 2

Hey Killer--glad to see you're in production. I'm going to ship you my arms for free as a bonus. You should really post this thing on the LS1Tech forums if you can.

Question: what are the chances these arms will fit a set of 10.5" wheels? Believe it or not, Forgestar will be releasing 6-lug 19" F14 wheels (9.5" front, 10.5" back) for the CTS-V in the April timeframe.

Black is fine, unless you have a recommendation with regards to color.

Okay, I'm up for a set of Level 2 in black. If these aren't one of the colors in the two set you have in stock, then I'll order one you have. I'll have cores back to you in due time.

How do you want to do this? Do you want us to PM the info (shipping address, etc) to you then Paypal the buck$?

Just send the paypal and I'll put it in the first post as soon as I get it. I haven't powder coated anything until I get an order and a color specified. I can do yours in black if you want :)

I was not aware of this wheel choice. If you can give me some information on the offset then I could easily make an educated guess as to if these wheels fit or not.

Then again, I'll probably be first in line for a set when they come out. Keep me posted!

Black is fine.

Money sent.



EDIT: Fuzzy's right: by all means, post up a thread on ls1tech. Also, maybe you should let Zoeb know what you've got. He may feel awkward telling people to buy his wheels and, oh you need some arms for a couple hundred more, but you do represent a solution to him selling more wheels of this type to V1 owners. Just a thought.

I apologize--I checked my old email and apparently Vincent @ Forgestar said that the F14's will be 19x9" and 19x10".

No information on the offset yet. I wrote them again, asking for an update and any other information they can provide. Honestly, I'm not worried about it.

Pics as soon as I get some powdercoated and finally assembled. I made the mistake already of assembling a flex joint on a completed but unpainted arm, and trying to get the flex joint apart requires a BIG hammer and a lot of patience. They go together much easier than they come apart.

Picking up an oven this weekend, the previous oven deal fell through.

Is it possible to edit a post a few days after you create it?

Anyways, here are the pics of what you'll be getting.

Question...you say 19"x10" fit with no problem...what about 18"x10"? May be a dumb question...but.....

Also...have you considered doing this on a turn around basis? I have an emotional attachment to my trailing arms :cool2:

They would probably help. The kink is a little bit more compact than my original set of arms. I don't have a set of 18x10s to do a comparison against. I basically made these arms by taking measurements off of my original arms with them still on the car. The car is my daily driver so I couldn't exactly have it apart to take more in-depth measurements.

I could do a turnaround style process, but your car would probably be out of commission for about a week. If you're fine with that, let me know.
