    torque arm mounting bracket

    When ordering a full length torque ARM do u need to order the replacement bracket or is the one on the rear end still useable? I ordered the longer bolts, its the umi full length adj. Chrome moly one.

    the one on the back of the tranny is still good to use however mostly everyone here will recommend doing the relocate bracket because the cone on the tranny is a weak spot and has been know to break. If you got the $$ go for the relocate.

    Also you can pm the UMI rep on here and he will answer any questions.

    Not the tunnel mount. There is a bracket that allows the use of either a stock or aftermarket full length torque arm that moves the mount off the transmission and onto the crossmember.

    Hello,

    Our full length torque arm will mount to the vehicle with no other brackets needed. It is also supplied with a new bushing that replaces the factory bushing.

    If I can help anymore please ask. Thank you!

    you reuse your stock bracket and just drill the rivets out on the bushing. New torque arm will come with poly bushings...everything is supplied.
