Default MAP 04-07 CTS-V Trailing Arms, More Rubber...Again!

Based on recent demand we have decided to make another batch of our CTS-V trailing arms! General consensus seems to be that these trailing arms allow up to a 295 or 305 rear tire with 10" rims. Anything larger than that and you're looking at spacers and/or modifications to other components, please check out the tire size discussion threads below for additional information.

MAP Trailing Arm:



Full Disclosure: Development of these arms was done quite some time ago by a former MAP employee. We will try to answer fitment questions, etc. to the best of our abilities, but we we make no claims of being CTS-V wheel and tire experts Here are some resources from the previous group buy that may be of assistance:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't you pay at least $325 for yours in the Creative Steel group buy? Did he provide dinner and a movie?

To the top!

Have you done any changes to the original to prevent the front bracket from separating at the weld ?

Our fabrication team has improved vastly so the fitting of the tube to the flex joint has a much nicer contour with additional surface area, not to mention the weld quality is second to none.

The Joint is a very beefy pillow ball for a very ridgid fit so you wont start rubbing over time. There is also a zerk to grease them aswell.

It uses Delrin bearing races and a chromed spherical bearing which is supposely much stronger than other poly style races
