    What made you choose the tranny mounted torque arm with relocation instead of a tunnel braced arm?

    I went with the full length too, I did it b/c of true dual clearance. I wonder if he did the same?

    blacker than wesleysnipes
    98' trans am

    id say with the suspension pieces he has bought...full front end ..that he is more geared towards handling /autox/road so the longer t/a is preferred ...or maybe to do with the road noise

    I have a short body mount TA and true duals and I don't have clearance issues. FWIW, the TD's were done prior to the torque arm.
    67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    Good to know I fabbed my tds from scratch with the full length torque arm setup from UMI. I have decent ground clearance for 3" tds and 1 chamber mufflers

    I already have bilsteins on the car. I said in another thread that I was going to order konis when I got the springs but when I started totaling everything up and saw how much everything was going to cost, I cut out the new shocks because it's not entirely necesary at this point

    that's exactly why! infact Im so dead set on using TSP true dual later on that I wasn't even considering relocating the TA but then when I saw the pics from UMI of their build with TSP TD i was sold on the relocation design. I asked BMR if theirs would clear the TSP true dual and they said they couldn't guarantee it would, but they hadn't had any complaints as of yet...... that pretty much made my decision for UMI on that piece pretty easy lol

    definately more into handling. the extra cleareance for headers the k member gives will come in handy later when I put on LT's as well

    I know that's kind of weird and I thought some was going to call me out on this sooner. I like the idea of being able to drop the clutch from a stand still, and haul ass but still be able to handle and take corners. I might have my logic kind of screwy but as far as I know it's not going to hurt anything being set up like that

    It seems an adjustable rear sway bar would have suited you better if you wanted both handling and launching abilities. Don't worry I won't analyze every bit

    Every suspension part I have on my car is from UMI, they make some good parts. Why did you go with bolt-on SFC?
