    looks cheap, but i would go with the strano/koni setup you got planned
    I'll wait for others to chime in though

    I have worked with an Edelbrock torque arm before. Its better than stocker stuff, but no where near the quality of BMR, UMI, Spohn etc.

    That's kinda alot when you consider the UMI LCA and panhard bars aren't much and are great parts, I have had the non adjustable and the double adj. Setups and both were great just depends what you wanna spend and if you have someone good to help you as the adjustable bars are tricky to get perfect, I had to get my buddy who owns a shop to help me. Relocation bracets are a cheap and easy install. Haven't got the torque arm yet so can't say how hard it is but my friend has the UMI and got it on. My friend has koni's and there nice shocks, but as for me I went with Lyn agx's after riding in my friends SS with the strano and kyb setup and saved the money for a set of spohn sway bars. As far as springs I went with the new BMR's since Strano's were on backorder and honestly his SS and my TA ride almost the same since I heard there a Strano knockoff but they were in stock when I needed then and just happened to be red powdercoated like all my suspension including the UMI strut brace. Since I ordered most at 1 time from Mike at ws6store.com he matched the $350 eBay price one the KYB set and threw in free shipping on everything. Just need the UMI subframe connectors, front upper and lower arm set since 1 of my lowers got dented I have a slight alignment variation which I fixed buy setting the pass side a little out of spec But I set it up so I won't have odd tire wear and you can't tell driving it since it's only a hair off factory spec and torque arm and I'll be done.

    Owning a 9 sec ricer is like coming out of the closest: at first you'll surprise everyone, but in the end you're still gay
