    I found that the middl holes put my LCA's perfectly straight when suspension was loaded. Thats with a 9", might be different with a 10 bolt.

    Spohn versus BMR and some people's opinions.

    I have the BMR Chrome Moly Adjustable Torque Arm. One thing to consider is that the BMR cross brace needs to be welded.

    From what I know, both are top notch. UMI is also one of the best, if not the best.

    I thought I have read somewhere though that the Spohn TA hits the underside of the car under harder bumps.....I could be wrong and this could be b/c how it was set-up.
    It's on jackstands.

    This is true only of the "Trac Pac", which should be used on high horsepower vehicles. The BMR adjustable torque arm attaches to the tail of the transmission housing, and no welding is required.

    I have this installed on my 01 Z28 (Sara) 291RWHP/345RWTQ, and have no issues what so ever.

    why do u want them straight? so it still squats like stock does?? use the lowest hole and it will foce the rear of the car up there fore pushing the axles and tires down puting more force on them... and on my nine inch mine where put on from moser and they dont drop as far as my weld one ones did... and u can tell with just 1/4 inch diffrence

    Anything below or above straight LCA's is either going to wanna lift the rear or squat TOO much. This is how I understand it, and Bob at EPP confirmed it.

    However you may have interference with the VSS on the M6. Be prepared to cut it up some [may have to rotate it 90 deg. forward]. You'll have to cut up the stock trans mount to accommodate the BMR bushing. A little synthetic grease will help there. You will need an angle finder to set the pinion shaft. A lift makes this all a lot easier.
