    Question Suspension Question

    I have a 2000 WS6 M6. It has Kenny Brown SFC's and springs. I'd like to get control arms, panhard bar, and torque arm. I can only afford one at a time. Which is most important? Should I get all adjustable? Can I use the factory hardware? Thanks for any advise!

    What do you do most often? Auto X, drag race, or just plain fun on the street's. Either way you should get adjustable upgrades.

    The lower control arms and torque arm will help your tires connect to the ground. An after market panhard bar will be more sturdy than the stock stamped steel piece. However, if you plan on lowering the the car, an adjustable panhard bar will re-center the rear-end since lowering the car shifts the rear-end to the right.

    Yes, very easy in my opinion. LCA's and torque arm, adjustable of course, will help you plant those tires will at the track.

    Actually the TA is what we did last, and only reason was to take stress off the tranny (not really necessary though) and adjust our pinion angle. We did our rear suspension LCA, APHR, then TA.
