    Torque arms

    Anybody installed a tunnel brace mounted torque arm?

    I just did to my Moser 9" out back and I noticed a stuttering in what feels like the tranny, is there some sort of tranny crossmember upgrade that needs to be done?

    Any tips would be sweet!

    I have the Global West TracLink on mine. No problems here. Have you checked all the bolts for tightness?

    UMI tunnel mount torque arm here. A little noisy on the street but does just fine at the track.

    shouldn't be, just make sure your pinion angle is correct and everything is tight. The factory tranny crossmember shoud be plenty strong especially if you have moved the torque arm off of it.

    Also check to see if the end of the torque arm that mounts to the rear end isn't contacting the tunnel of the car. I had to take an air hammer to mine.
