    street setup

    I'm about to have a SPOHN torque arm (4130/chassis mounted) and GW double-bearing LCA's put on my 02 TransAm..I have a few bolt ons and handling mods so far, but do you think these will be good for my street car? Check out my cardomain page, membername is 2002transamws6. I have done a bunch of research on the products but i'm wondering if there will be much more interior noise with the new mods. oh yeah, the TA is not a poly mount either.

    thanks

    -Nick

    I researched this subject for a long time. The answer is yes you will get (in my opinion) alot of extra noise. My car is also a street car and I wanted to keep it as quiet as possible, yet improve the suspension. I ended up staying away from any type of chassis mount or tunnel mount since they will make the most noise and went with a tranny mount. LCA's I chose BMR rubber/poly bushings. With this set up I didn't notice any more noise than the stock set up. Keep in mind my car is a street car and doesn't need as strong as a setup as a street/strip or strip car would. This will be plenty strong for the occasional street play.

    I just deal with noise. I've got polyurethane bushings and mounts all over the place...
