Thanks. Sounds good I will check it out.
I have it lowered right now with Eibach springs 1.25" and UMI suspension parts I including adj PHB, LCAs w/relocation brackets, sway bars, strut tower brace, 2 point SFC, bilsteinus HDs. I know it is t Konis and Stranos. But it greatly increased the handling of the car. Night and day from the stock setup. Everybody is saying I need the adj Torque arm, which makes sense. So that is coming soon.WS.6~LM Exhaust w/quad SS tips~Lowered w/Eibach Springs, Bilstein HD shocks, UMI tubular LCAs w/ relo bracket, UMI adjustable on car PHB~UMI front 35mm/rear 22mm sway bars~UMI 2 point SFCs~UMI STB~Volant CAI~Diablo Predator Performance Tune

I used UMI suspension parts all around my car. I need to get an adjustae torque arm, and I think I am done. I would prefer to stick with UMI for the torque arm, unless it would benefit me to go else were. But i dont drag my car. What should I look for when buying? I see some accommodate for future LTs. And I would like to get it off the transmission.

The full-length is geared more towards everyday driving. It will be similar to the OEM style which came equipped on the car, but be more robust. It also gives the option of adjusting your pinion angle (for lowered cars) if you choose to buy an adjustable one.
The tunnel mount torque arm is shorter and more geared towards straight-line racing (drag racing). This style "typically" transfers more road noise into the cabin due to its design; mounted up into the tunnel underneath the car. The tunnel also needs to be massaged (create clearance for fitment) so the torque arm clears the underbody of the vehicle. This isn't always the case, but a lot of people have to do this.
Both designs come with the option of an external front mount which is typically a bar/plate that the front of the torque arm mounts to. The mount in return gets mounted to the underside of the car. This removes the chances of any damage being done to the transmission since the torque arm is no longer mounted to the transmission.
Either way, you still need to determine which exhaust you will end up with as there are different types of mounting for different styles of exhaust. You also want to ensure that the front mount you choose will offer you ample ground clearance since it will sit lower to the ground than the standard mounting style. This is especially important with lowered cars since you already have less ground clearance to begin with.
