    Make sure you get the relocated LCA's, that will further strengthen your new torque arm and help prevent breakage. The stock LCA's are pure CRAP.

    I like the Spohn stuff. Most tunnel mounted TA's will clunk cause the road and rear end noise is transmitted right thru the floor of the car.

    Got my stuff in the mail yesterday. The new torque arm has a better strengthening bracket and is lighter. But it ain't no Silver Vein, more like Carbon Fiber colored. LIAR!

    Unbalanced Engineering's is undoubtedly the best Torque Arm, but we decided to go with the UMI tunnel brace mounted adjustable torque arm...

    I installed the torque arm and LCA's Saturday. I didn't do the relocation brackets b/c they didn't have brackets for the parking brake lines, which are highly necessary. It didn't come with a pinion angle gauge, so I eyeballed it to -2 to -3 degrees. Honestly, it looks more like -4 to -5 degrees, but I can't be sure.

    Anyone know where I can get a pinion angle gauge?

    I only ordered part of the BMR kit, so I didn't get the gauge. Dagummit

    i have lca's and brackets just waiting to put them on. and i'm surprised to hear that people have broken the edelbrock torque arms it seemed so much sturdier than the stamped steel stock one which was warped on mine
