Wondering if you are still making bushing? I would like to buy a set from you, actually I am not much of a mechanic so if you still have a some pre-made sets would be interested in those or I could send you a set of rears.

Put my rims on my car last night and it needs to come down a little.

WildWhl still provides them in exchange for a donation to the forums or the FAQ's (I know b/c I just asked him to send me a set). I would say you should PM him but since youre not a supporting member...

Hey, that sounds like a great way to take care of two birds with one stone!

I still dont understand whats required.I have the regular ctsv shocks (nonperf). If I buy H&R springs or eibachs to install, what do i need to buy/do to actually get the car to lower (other than buy the abve springs)

If you leave your self leveling rear shocks on, they'll pump up back to their normal ride height! If you use Eibachs instructions, they tell you to downgrade to the non-load leveling regular CTS sport shocks. WildWhl came up with a simple solution to lower the top pillow mount about 1" which allows you to keep the nivomats. It basically involves removing a factory rubber bushing (not the bumpstop) and inserting new ones above the mount.

You can do a search here on 'nivomat mod' or you can go to CadillacFAQ for the write-up with pictures. After you read it all, you'll likely pass on installing Eibachs and H&Rs and simply do his mod front and rear, to lower your car ~1" using the stock springs and shocks!

5andunder -

The above gents have it correct. Support the .faq and this forum and I'll support your ride :D

Silver Baron sent me some killer pics of how to turn the shocks on a lathe - but you guys know me - no time to write up a how to :nono:

Silver - care to enlighten some of the CTS and V members on a how to?
