    Cradle bushings.

    Not sure if anyone is looking to swap out the OEM cradle bushings, but if you are Whiteline is about the only thing out there right now. Jordan @ Creative Steel is soo covered up with the front end kits he hasn't (not sure if he even will) messed with a rear kit. These kits are all over the web at $245 to 260, but thanks to Jordan this site is doing a close-out $64 bucks.!!
    Rear Crossmember Bushings - Cadillac CTS - W93398 I got mine.. putting it out there for the rest of you guys, because once you get in the 80K+ mileage on the car, it seems things move around back there..

    Just got off the phone with whiteline and they have plenty. They told me to inform aftermarketsuspensionparts that they had some in stock and they would drop ship them to me once ordered.

    Whitelines website is selling them for $269.80.

    Ill see if i can get them for the discounted price dropped shipped...doubtful but worth a shot.

    Awesome! Did you install them yourself or have them done?

    Had somebody else do it. After reading up on how much of a PITA they are to get out I decided it was better to pay than start throwing tools around while trying to do it

    Has anyone tackled these on their own? I got mine today and will probably do them myself tomorrow.

    I plan to do mine. I've talked at length with Jordan at Creative Steel (CSTech) on the forum, and he has told me they are some work. There will be some things you will have to disconnect to have the cradle down far enough to access the OEM bushings to knock them out. Exhaust, drive shaft, brake lines, top bolts of the shocks (in the trunk) and 3 or 4 connectors. Not sure if you have a lift or are a driveway guy like me, but I plan on lifting the body off the sub-frame, meaning I intend on leaving the wheels on pulling the bolts and jacking the body. Jordan said the OEM bushings come out pretty easy if you have access to and air hammer/ rivet gun to help drive them out. To me the install looks easy, two pieces and the metal fitting.. Let me know how yours works out.

    Got mine all knocked out. Wasn't bad at all. I'll do a write up in the how to section once I've finished a few other things I'm working on.

    If you are able to a wrie-up that would be awesome, if not please pm me some of the details on how you did it. In your driveway/garage? and what did you have to disconnect. I'm going to be doing them over Christmas break for sure.

    Did a quick write up in the How To:. I'm sure I'll add more to it as I think about it.

    Plenty of trolls and haters but I use Speed Inc. He did the first set of mods (headers, pulleys) when I got my V and I was pretty happy with their work. Tuned my built motor last year. Last week it started barely idling. Ended up with a broken valve spring. Had him replace the valve springs and do another dyno tune and he got me in in 3 days and finished everything in a couple days. I had Modern Muscle do a tune about 18 months ago that I wasn't happy with so I had Speed do it again. I have met the owner, Tom, many times and he is a good guy and has always taken care of me. Don't know for sure if they do bushings but can't see why they wouldn't. Tony is also a great guy IMO. Oh yeah they have V as a shop car
