    Not sure exactly what the grease is -- it comes with the poly bushings and is super sticky clear lubricant. Absent that, chassis grease would work just fine.

    Looks darn nice under there, pajeff02. I was told by Founders to use non-petroleum based grease on poly bushings.

    Good info guys, how about the umi k members. I've heard from other people that if you live in a area with crappy roads ie a lot of bumps and pot holes the after market k members can increase the ride harshness more than the stalk one. Idk if this is true or not?

    Thanks! If I had to do it all over again, I would probably order a Strange 12 bolt. The Moser is nicely built, but it is a noisy SOB and, with the tunnel mount torque arm, all that noise comes right into the cabin. The noise is primarily in the 1,800 to 2,000 rpm range and lets you know that things out back aren't stock.

    No idea on grease recommendations. My UMI LCA's are greasable and as far as I can recall there were no instructions as to a specific grease to use. As far as the K-member goes, you can re-use your stock control arms or upgrade to their tubular ones. I am still running the stock DeCarbons and springs and haven't noticed any difference in ride quality. The K-member should have no impact at all on ride quality -- both the stock and UMI units are bolted directly to the front "frame rails".

    ^ so when your talking 'tunnel'' mount torque arm is that a different set up then the stock location for the torque arm that mounts to the tranny?

    Exactly. The mounting point is moved back to the location of the undercar brace. Any setup that gets it off the back of the transmission is an improvement. The tunnel mount is more of a drag race piece, while full length torque arms are best for the street and road courses.

    Here is the torque arm page:

    Torque Arms : UMI Performance, Inc.

    As for grease, both for Delrin and poly, we recommend a synthetic premium grease like Synco Super Lube (which we sell - since it has Teflon and Teflon, Delrin and Poly like each other), Mobil 1, Amsoil, Redline, etc.

    I spoke with both Energy Suspension and Prothane and they said the Formula 5 Prelube stuff is basically Teflon and Thickener - heavy synthetic grease.

    Here's an example of what Jeff is talking about. In the first pic you can see the TA is relocated off the tranny tail cone and is move to a new bracket that is part of the TA relocate kit for M6 that replaces the stock tranny crossmember.

It is over 20 lbs. lighter than the stock piece and quite heavily built. Here are some pics from the install earlier this year:

    I'd skip the K member if your not racing. I have Spohn poly lcas with no issues. Pajeff my Strange 12 bolt is loud as hell too.
