Just wheel hop, but that's easily fixed with a bumper steer kit and control Arm Mods that most people do anyway. I don't have any troubles with mine, normal wear and tear.

I found everything to be in perfect working order EXCEPT the shaker 500 cd error. 05-07 had the "skipper 500" when they would constantly skip when they started to go bad, then it was fixed for 08-09 BUT, the new problem was CD errors.

The only problem I have with my 08' GT is people going 62 in the fast lane of traffic in the highway ...

I saw a lot about this on another forum and seems to be common, but I never had this issue with my Shaker system. Mine was built toawrd the end of 08 so I may have the fixed version of the Shaker (IDK)!!! I would ask about it if you plan on using the factory setup.

Yeah I would stick with the factory but how much would it cost to fix the error if the problem does occur?

I think it was a factory recall for the Shaker systems that were failing.... So it's shouldn't cost you much. Just have to make sure the local dealer doesn't try to take you for a run on the repair.
