    My 09 G8 GT has about 75k miles. Weekend driven. I just did the cts-v brake conversion. Before I do more engine mods (including supercharger), I am thinking its about time for some suspension work. I would like to get this car on the track but mostly it will be street use. I've mainly been on...

My best 60’ is 1.99 before the stall and gears. On a 17” drag pack what is the best suspension parts from...

  4. Suspension / Brakes
    I’m hoping to get away from the stock suspension, and wanted to verify my findings prior to pulling the trigger on anything. The G8 is my daily driver, so I’m not looking to do anything too high performance. I’m thinking the PPV struts and Tein springs given what’s available in today’s market...

    It's time to replace the suspension on my '09 G8 GT, and I'm curious what your opinions are on which struts to use. The coils on mine are getting bad, and since GM doesn't have and full strut assemblies I was considering buying aftermarket. I'm looking for the stock ride height and something...
  6. Suspension / Brakes
    It's getting time to replace the struts on my GT and I'm debating what I should switch to. I was looking to upgrade to FE3, but only the fronts are still available. I've noticed my wheels rub on the well occasionally when I have a car full of people, so I was wondering if I should upgrade to PPV...

    First off, if there's a relevant thread out there with the info I'm seeking and I've missed it, please let me know. I have a '09 G8 GT, w/a little over 90K miles and is completely stock. Getting some rattles from the front end and, from what I've researched here, I'm inclined to believe it's...
  8. Suspension / Brakes
    I'm looking for others who have the Pedders Extreme XA Coilover Kit on their GT to give me suggestions on what to set them to. I had a more mechanically experienced friend do the install with me. I had him set the rears to "fully firm" and the fronts to about mid way. After test driving, the car...

  10. Suspension / Brakes
    Need everyone's opinion on what shocks/ struts to get when replacing the factory ones. I know most people might prefer coil overs but would rather run the cheaper way and don't want the hard stiffness of coil overs. Only drive my car around 5k miles a year, so if shocks and struts could...
  11. Suspension / Brakes
    Hey guys, I need some help. Got some more front suspension issues. Not please keep in mind my forte is not with suspension gubbins. So I have almost 70k on the old girl, i got one wheel (not sure which one) cupping a tire really bad (saw when I put on snow tires for the season) and I have a...
  12. Suspension / Brakes
    As a college kid in the smokies, my car has been beat to hell with these terrible roads. Today as i was backing out of my parking spot, I heard a pop from the front drivers side suspension area. I didn't think anything of it until i started accelerating forward. I noticed my car waving like...
  13. Suspension / Brakes
    Haven't touched my suspension on the car yet. First issue I'd like to try and remedy is the amount the car drops when packing up the trunk/people sitting in the back. Any suggestions for stiffer springs? I do NOT want to drop the height as I am having rubbing issues already with my rear tires...
  14. Suspension / Brakes
    Went to swap out my end links and found the rear end links won't come out. As I loosen the bolts, the threads turn as well and never come out. Anyone else have this issue or know how to remove them without having to cut the nut off? (that just sounded bad)
  15. Suspension / Brakes
    I ordered a MOOG Sway Bar link to replace mines that broke and when I opened the box the part looked used. Looked like it was installed than taken off because even the threads on it didnt look perfect. Weird thing that made me scared was that it had grease on it. Everywhere on it but just a...
