    UMI Performance G-body frame brace - Hot Rod Regal

    Pretty cool little frame brace from UMI Performance...
    I installed it and made a quick video in the link... I think this will help stiffen the rear frame rails on the g-body...

    Trying out the complete Hotchkis Sport Suspension Stage 2 TVS kit. Got some install videos and a few pics here - Hotchkis Suspension for the G-body

    also using the Baer Brakes bumpsteer kit - they look good together

    It is pretty sad that it took about 20 years before manufacturers paid serious attention to G-Bodies. When I had my '86 Cutlass, there was nothing out there for them, then they figured out how good the cars were and that people would spend their money on them. I'm jealous of you guys

    Thanks for the complements guys!
    I am really amazed at how many cool parts are being developed for the G-bodies and how many pro-builders are treating the platform like the classic A-bodies! Its only good things for G-body guys! Truly though, if one thinks about this recent revolution, I would say the age of the guys building them has a big part of that and the use of the LS engine.

    SO... one of the common problems with GM cars is the tilt column tend to wear out in the older cars.Talked to a few guys with bad tilt columns in their G-bodies. Another scenerio, I had a column shift column for my G-body originally and swapped to a floor shift column. but there is a shifter linkage on the stock columns that is not used when using an electronic transmission (4L60e/4l80e). So my solution to these problems was a quick remedy from Ididit Inc. (click link for article and pics)

    http://hotrodregal.com/ididit-univer...eering-column/

    It's an option that not many G-body guys want to try since we have excellent columns usually... But what if you want something a little more crisp feeling than the stock column? Or (like my situtation) if you have a column shift car and want to switch to a floor shift column? Or if you just have a worn out stock column with a sloppy tilt...a Ididit Universal column or a custom built column is a good option.

    hope this helps!
