    rearend swap completed with pics

    well i finally swapped over my 9" from my LT1 ta over to my LS1 camaro, there are still a few things that need done but most of it is done, it took me and a friend about 7 hours on sunday to get it all swaped over.

    now on my camaro it has the

    9"
    umi tq arm
    umi lca's
    umi sfc's
    spohn drag sway bar
    spohn adjustable panhard
    ebich sportline springs
    and will have kyb shocks when i buy them













    and all finished



    I still have to run all new brake lines the old one's on the camaro were just worn out and rusted, then center everything up and switch the backing plates.

    A good day's work by the looks. When you tackle the brake lines, can you please post a pic of the torque arm mounted to the 9", and your disc brake mounts also please? I am curious to see how this is done and can't quite make out the details in these pics. Thank you.

    you can not use a stock tq arm when mounting to a 9" man, and for the brake backing plates you have to remove the stock 10 bolt cover and pull the c clips and take the axel's out to remove the backing plates, ill get some pic's man, i hope the storms hold off this weekend and ill get back to it.

    oh not a problem, the trans mounted one attaches on the left side of the trans it 'slip's' into the rubber mount, on my trans am, it is the BMR TRAC PAC, which is tied into the subframe's and is mounted that way i can get pics of that also i think i have some from when i installed it the first time man let me look.

    OK - so you can use a regular aftermarket torque arm, but you need a special bracket to attach it to the 9".

    you should not use the stock one it will most likely snap under stress

    yea on the aftermarket one's they have two different sets of mounting holes on the bracket one for the stock 10 bolt and other for the 9" or 12 bolt.

    Btw is it just me or did you forget to put the top part of the panhard bar back? Or you dont need it when you swap to a 9'?
