    Congrats

    BMR or UMI, both are great.

    Will you be doing the install yourself?

    I posted a thread of my 12 bolt install (with lots of pics): Bidding my rear adieu! It really wasn't that bad to do. The biggest challenge was modifying the parking brake brackets to work with my relocation brackets.

    I went with a 9" in my 93 T/A, I wish I had one in my WS6. All of my suspension is UMI stuff.

    I hate tunnel mounted torque arms so I'll say go with a full legnth unit. I'm a Spohn man all the way. Whichever you get, get the longer bolts to go with it.

    I have the UMI relocated to the tunnel, I'm lowered, once in awhile I have a thud of the TQ Arm hitting the tunnel, but it'll clearance itself.

    I like the TQ Arm off the tranny, I'd advise if you go full length to get it relocated off the transmission, all the road vibration and axle rotation get's transmitted into the pot metal aluminum... doesn't make for a good day when the transmission houseing cracks.

    I hear this all the time... I don't hear any bang'ing or any more "noise" out of the tunnel mount, maybe it's just me, maybe it's the 3pt subframe's distributeing it.

    If I put a hand full of quaters in the cup holder then I get some vibration noises, same goes if there's a bunch of loose change in the center console... other wise it's good.

    I think he meant a full legnth torque arm with the transmission crossmember relocation mount. Basically takes your tranny mounted arm and makes it a body mounted one. I don't recommend this tho as you'll pay $280 for the arm then another $240 for the new crossmember.
