Picked up the "V" after having the rear bushing TSB upgrade - "Put a 20 foot p__p stain in the dealer’s driveway when I left." Words can't even begin to tell you'll what a difference it makes to the car, get it done now! I’m driving what I was thinking; I bought in the first place. An F__ing Hot Rod. I put 275-40 / 245-45 GS-D3 Goodyear Eagles on her to replace the run craps (which were slicks at 8200 miles) and allthough a lot softer and without the crisp turning I still am very happy with the change.

While it was there at Nabors Cadillac in Costa Mesa, CA they also gave me a free oil change, a free tail light lenses and a free replacement front air dam rubber (yeah I know don’t pull all the way up to the curb) all under warranty. With all of the complaints about dealers on this site I thought it would be good to give a high five to a really good Cadillac Dealer.

I agree. Bushings offer "some" improvement. BTW - GSD3's are on sale right now at Tire Rack and Discount Tire.

Still on the fence about this, but - with posts like this - I'm swaying towards getting it done. I haven't had too much trouble with wheel hop (maybe not driving it aggressively enough), and the my dealer states it will comprimise ride quality.

I also do not do a lot of hard launches which would cause the wheel hop, however, I had the update done (just cause I wanted the car "right") and feel no difference in the ride at all.

Urby is right - find another dealer. Zero degradation in ride quality. Slight noise increase? Possibly - but the rightis not degraded - I promise.

The 275's fit fine on the stock rims and they stick out just enough to look nasty! I'm sure when the rainy season gets here I'll have some scratches on the quarter panels from the road debris kick-up but the car handles great.

Wheel hop is not relagated to just dry launch. The axle likes to dance around in the rain also and its a lot easier. If the dealer does the bushing install free do it.

If you have to pay for it, get the specter bushings instead, its a better part.
