    Not looking forward to breaking my rear extension housing on my transmission when I get home for R&R again, so Im looking to purchase a relocaton bracket for the torque arm or the adjustable torqur arm. Just looking for some insight on which one I should get

    I use a Global West Traclink torque arm on mine. Love it. Adjustable to suit your needs, but might be a bit of overkill for a strictly street driven car.

    If you plan on staying on the street with your car, get a full-length adjustable torque arm that gets the front mount of the torque arm off the tailshaft of the transmission.

    The other route is a tunnel brace torque arm that is shorter; mostly used for track use though. Typically since it's mounted in the tunnel, you will transmit a little bit more road noise.

    Either way, get one that is a) adjustable and b) that mounts off the tailshaft of the transmission.

    UMI sells some pretty nice pieces.

    I personally went with a TrakPak from BMR...probably a little too "stout" for your application

    When you get a relocation bracket you have to get a new TA.


    Like 35th said:

    Track car = Relocation hardware + New relocated adjustable TA
    DD = New adjustable TA

    Do you ever plan on replacing your rear end? Another reason to consider adjustable. Lowering is too.

    If you go with the tunnel relocation kit, I would get the one with the DSL. Also, you'll need to know if you want to do long tube headers, as they need to be taken into consideration when getting a tunnel brace.

    Oh, I also vote for UMI.
