    Jeff. I about smacked myself in the face as I didn't take a measurement before. According to Sam, it's 1.2"

    That wouldn't be too bad then. I am real concerned about maintaining ground clearance -- if you get a chance see what you have between your LT's and/or Y pipe and the ground. The difference in the look of the car is quite dramatic.

    Thanks all. I love the stance now. I am having a few issues with it. When I make a hard turn left I hear the TA clunking now. I need to create some clearance there. Also, my cross-member mount for the TA hits on larger speed bumps. Found that out going into the school parking lot to get to the garage. I didn't scrap or anything going over railroad tracks or over large dips and bumps in the road though so I think I'll be OK. If not, I might have to look into another TA and mount set-up other than the BMR Trak Pak I have.

    Hey Jon, hows it for the corners now with it lowered?.. Was there a big improvment? Or is it about as good as it was handling wise before lowering? You may have to do the little zig-zag thing crossing speed bumps lol.

    Haven't cornered it hard as the TA is hitting now. I need to create clearance before I really rip into it and test out the Koni/Strano combo.

    Does the front of the torque arm attach at the tunnel brace or up by the transmission?

    This isn't my car, but the same set-up. The portion where it dips to clear the exhaust is what is hitting the speed bump on mine now.

    Looks like a modified tunnel mount -- have never seen anything quite like that on here.

    It's the BMR Trak Pak. I don't really know what to do other than to a) don't ever go over speed bumps...which I normally don't anyway..and leave it be or b) sell the Trak Pak and get a different set-up.

    The cross-member is welded to the SFCs.
