    I'd say that's the next logical suspension mod since you have shocks already. That will help with traction and planting more power to the ground. If you are lowered, get the adjustable TA so you can properly set up your pinion angle.

    My opinion, you will like it

    TA is next in line for sure.

    Then on to your front suspension and sway bars.

    Hello
    Thanks for choosing UMI Performance for your suspension needs. You have everything as far as the rear except for a adjustable torque arm. I am positive once you install everything you have. And when you have the torque arm adjusted (recommend -2 Degrees) you will not be disappointed in the performance of the vehicle when completed. If you have any other questions feel free to ask and I will be more than glad to help you get the correct set up needed.
    Thanks
    Brad

    Not trying to thread jack but what torque arm would give enough room for true duals?

    tranny tail mount torque arm with relocation bracket is best if you want to run duals BUT there has been a few people who have ran duals over their tunnel mount TA. from what I understand, if you run an H pipe with your TD's than you can get the proper clearance for the tunnel mount TA but if you go with a TSP TD (x pipe) it won't work.

    Below is the torque arm we use for true duals. depending on the brand you are using this item offers additional room over the factory torque arm. If you look at the links below both have a ton of installation pictures to show the clearance and what this item looks like installed. The pics are of the TSP true dual system.

    Recommended torque arm

    More installation pictures

    If you have any questions please ask. Thank you!

    have fun torqueing the upper adjudgment bolt by the top of the yoke on the rear end. I used a combination of atachments on my ratchet to get the right angle
