Our 2006 Cadillac CTS Base with the V6 and manual transmission lost reverse. The shifter is no longer available through GM or Cadillac. We looked everywhere for a used shifter assembly, we even considered changing the whole transmission with a used one because it had a good shifter. When we found Creative Steel offered a bushing kit we had to try it. It was a little difficult to install as space was tight, but the bushings fit perfectly. The staff at Creative Steel were very helpful, providing email support for ordering. The CTS shifter has been rebuilt and the vehicle is back in service. Thank you!
Bought a set for my Commander and they failed after 4 yrs. Needless to say i’m disappointed!
Simple and direct parts for an intense application… gets the job done correctly! DanT. BRRacing Corvette LSR
Had blown engine mounts when I purchased my 2005 Cadillac CTS V. Bought Elimivibe mounts and a new short throw shifter from Creative Steel and could not be happier! Its like a new car. I Highly recommend both products and will be back for more parts from Creative Steel. Packaging was great and shipping was very fast! Nothing But nice Things to say!
Finally installed the wide wheel trailing arms for my first-gen 2004 cts (wanna -V) fit perfectly, and very well-made product I run 275/35/18, had to roll the fenders, and now have plenty of room for more meat if so desired paired the arms with Yellow Speed coil over drop kit, very happy with the car new stance and increased tightness of the rear assembly thanks for a great product that does what you say it does Keith Schwartz Lake Havasu City AZ
I have a 2008 Jeep Commander basically a Wk1 platform. I was poking around on the internet and came across CS. This is of course after being not satisfied with the 2 previous companies i purchased from i was sure that someone had to make something better. I knew that the commander was on the same platform as the 08 jeep Cherokee SRT8 i searched mounts under this and found CS. I talked with them and ordered a set for my. so far been 2yrs and i have had zero issues with this mount. it makes a little more noise but i will take the small noise over the extremely durable mount. i have participated in 3 jeep safari events in Moab i have broken 2 rear diffs and one front drive shaft and this mount is unbothered. I expected it to fail like the others but it did not. this mount has performed better than my wildest dreams and i highly recommend it to replace any other diff mount you have currently. I almost forgot to come back to leave a review because it has just worked and been out of sight out of mind. now i have a new project with a new issue and i immediately thought of CS to see if they make anything for my highly modified SRT-6
Bought the adjustable short throw shifter for my 05 CTS-V. Made a huge difference.
The fitment and workmanship in all of creative steels products have been top notch! The differential tool and subframe tools are a life saver. I have replaced all my bushings and the car is so much more crisp and feels so much more planted to the road. 10 star review from me. Glad to support a great company and products made in the USA ??
I have been using Creative Steel products for my Cadillac CTS-V for years and keep coming back! Their customer service is second to none and they go above and beyond to make sure they keep and have satisfied customers. It is rare these days to see companies that still truly value their customers. Kristie has gone above and beyond on several occasions even so far as exchanging parts I had that were months old when I changed directions and also recently allowing me to return duplicate parts I had due to my mechanic misplacing some parts that he later found. I have purchased every part that CS sells for my car and they have all been of top quality! What else can I say other than look no further than Creative Steel for all your high performance car parts!
Creative Steel has absolutely amazing customer service and top notch quality products (+made in the USA). We prefer to purchase locally & U.S. made for our customers vehicles and rarely come across suppliers with their level of customer service and expertise!
My local repair shop with the last name Boys gave me an estimate of $2477.57 to get rid of the clunk sound and driving vibrations, after a little research i found Creative Steel and with their help I took care of the problem for less then $125.00 by just replacing the rear Differential Bushing using their tool and parts. Thank you so much Creative Steel!!!
Well worth the price. The short shifter for the V1 CTS-V is such an astronomical improvement over the stock shifter. Very notchy and accurate shifts as compared to the stock shifter that just flops all over the place.
I purchased the black (street edition) poly bushings for the WK/ XK Jeep platform and I am very impressed with the quality of the bushings and the fitment of the entire kit. I have tried numerous replacement bushings for this platform and these are by far the best you can buy. The newly updated version of this kit is very thought through and easily installs with no tools after the old bushing and metal sleeve are removed. Total install time for this platform was ~2.5 hours with basic technician tools. Most other kits have a lot of additional resonance and vibration felt from the driveline and these do not have that same characteristic. This kit fixed my bump steer / vibration over bumps I was experiencing, the R- N- D clunk that these vehicles are notorious for and the thumping noise from the front driveshaft that happens when backing up after your OEM bushings are completely worn out. I have had these installed for about a week now and I am very happy creative steel took the time to invest in this bushing design flaw for the Jeeps. Thank you CS.
My shifter needed replaced in my gen1 cts-v. After researching and looking at options I decided to go with creative steels shifter. I was a little hesitant not being a major shifter company. But liked the fact that the C.S. shifter had the adjustability for throw and height and can accommodate the factory knob if you desire.
Let me tell ya, the quality is amazing! It works fantastic, the craftsmanship is truly artwork. Too bad it’s all covered with console and boot!
This shifter won’t disappoint,
Installed Creative Steel solid mounts in my 2014 CTS-V with a Dart LS Next 427CID engine. I installed the mounts in my garage with jack stands and a floor jack. Very easy to access through the wheel wells and from underneath. Car rides and feel great. Thanks for making a solid (pun intended) product Creative Steel!
I have the rear poly bushings full set , fit and finish perfect install easy with the tool I rented from them, highly recommend for high performance applications .

I got my motor mounts within the week and had them installed. I never knew how much a new set of motor mounts could improve the performance and handling of any car. Maybe I’m just accustom to regular rubber block mounts. I immediately noticed many improvements with my CTS-V. Starting was much easier; nearly effortless key turn to get the engine started. The clutch and transmission shifter were much smoother. Even the steering was much more responsive. I even noticed the idle was a lot smoother. I was stopped at a red light and thought my engine had stalled. That is how smooth and quiet the idle is. Although a slight vibration is usually noticed with these urethane mounts the vibration I am experiencing is very minimal. Customer service is outstanding. Kristie promptly returned an email to me helping me choose the stage one mounts. I would highly recommend Creative Steel’s urethane mounts. Quality parts from a customer oriented company.
Thank you for providing great products and great service. In addition to needing the diff bushing tool soon, you will be my first stop for any repairs or upgrades you offer parts for. Thanks for feeding the addiction and making it more pleasant. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for the link, also I will be sending back the diff tool today, it was awesome. You guys know your stuff and it shows in the quality of your products and customer service.
All I can say is wow. Quality products, good price. My cts v has never been so nice till now, I installed the bushing kit and didn’t realize how bad the factory ones had been. The service with you was outstanding and made everything simple. Looking forward to buy some more parts down the road.
Your customer service is great! I will be purchasing more products from you guys in the future!
Just wanted to send another thank you and short testimonial. I just rolled 140k miles in my V, 25k miles since the 8.8″ rear end swap. I’m still as happy as the day I backed it out of the garage. Thanks to you and Max for the quality product.
We received the parts and the special tool yesterday. The tool worked out great and was a big time saver. My son’s CTS now rides like a Cadillac. The tool was mailed back to you today Priority Mail.
Thanks for the help and the great service
I just wanted to take the time to personally thank you for all of your help with our customers CTS-V and the 8.8 conversion. From the very beginning you were extremely helpful in the process and you practically gave a full walkthrough to our technicians about the install and fitment of your kit. Customer service seems to be a lost art now that we have all this technology to do things for us, and we at Fastline Performance just wanted to simply say Thank You for being great people and a great business.
Thank you so much for great customer service. I received my part today and am very thankful for the express postage. Thank you again!
Your product is awesome. Your service is awesome. Even waiting a couple of weeks for your part was worthwhile. You told me it would be a bit, and I had a customer willing to wait.
Your product replaced the competitor’s faulty design that vibrated so badly it would shake me out of the car. After going round and round with them regarding proper installation, I installed your coupler and problem was gone.
My only regret is that when you did not have the part, I ordered from your competitor to save time. Wrong choice.
Just got the missing rear diff bushing. That was very quick and I’d like to thank you guys for the great service. I’ve dealt with tons of parts companies in the past and never had service this good.
Keep up the good work.
What great service and nice folks. Thanks
I’m sure you get these pics all the time, I’ll add to that 🙂 Got all the old stuff out last night, going to clean and change a fuel pump tonight and likely start going together Saturday morning…
Your diff swap parts are incredible; I’m very happy with the initial look and feel and really look forward to taking it for a test drive. You just never know what you’ll get from aftermarket supplier, but you guys went above and beyond. Thank you!
