Default The fix for the CTS-V rear

I am asking a question here.

I have a fix in the works for your rear end problems. This fix will allow you to place extreme amounts of power to the ground. Would this be a viable option if it was a total bolt in unit??????????????????????????

The rear is one of the major reasons I have somewhat scaled back the longterm upgrades to my V. I'm sure anyone who wants mods will be very interested in an upgrade. It would be super nice if your kit would be a 9" IRS conversion where parts/gears would be easy to find.

We are in the market for a V and planning on doing all preventive maintenance for keeping the rear intact, also planning on improving power output. Would love to hear what you have in mind.

I think it would be a great option, and my only one at that!

You would make a bagillion dollars if you could pull it off. The only consistently available kit is made by BMR and it's not an end all.....it just cures most of the wheel hop. I would buy one in a heartbeat from you over the BMR just based on the work you've done in the past. I'd like to hear details ASAP as I'm about to go buy a BMR kit, since wheel hop blew up one of my differentials already after 3300 miles.

BTW, you'd get 50 times the response on the cadillac forums compared to here.

Heck ya make a rear end for us. We need one very bad, heard you were working on one in the shop, someone from dallas I believe. That is the only reason I have not put more power to this car as of yet, waiting on a solution for the rear end.

We have meet on several occasions, not sure you remember me, use to come out with BADZ "jeff Paris", when we use to go to Sealy and baytown. I also heard you have a shop out in Tomball, were exactly is it ?? I will be needing some bottle refills come in a week or so. Would like to come out and check out the new shop.

I am in the testing faze right now. The fix will be a complete bolt in unit with a new driveshaft, center section and halfshafts. I am hoping to be taking orders at the end of Jan.

JetG my shop is behind the old Parkway Chevy. The address is 14102 Pine Meadow.

Okay I will swing by sometime. I live in Fairfield so not to far away from you at all. What is the shop number. If I would have known that you were thinking about doing this i would have just let you use my car, as it sits in the garage for months on end, while working in WI.

Ballpark figure of how much $$$?

Will the driveshaft clear stock/aftermarket (aka B&B) exhausts?

I'm very interested...would love to see pics if available.

There are a bunch of guys (me included) who've already ponied up R&D money for a project on the other forum. You betcha we're interested... First to market with a bullet-proof solution should rule! Me like the idea of new (one-piece?) driveshaft, new half-shafts...

There will be two versions of a 9" ford replacement in the next few months. Everyone just needs to be patient. From whta I've been told it will be a complete assembly.

Count me in for the fix, especially if it's a bolt in. I'm on my third diff, this time they installed the 06 version. Now I'm afraid to push the car hard. Diff quote "You are the weekest link, Goodbye"

So people are "ok" with ditching a IRS setup in favor of a solid rear? I don't get it. Even though the V's diff is underrated its still a superior setup as far as suspension goes. I hope someone incorperates a C5/C6 differential into the V's cradle.

my unit will still be independent suspension. I will just be built out of parts that will take the abuse.

Hopefully it'll take the abuse and eliminate the wheel hop.
