Default Finishing my suspension Strano's going in this week

I will be finishing my suspension some time this week. I have just got my front springs out and I 'am waiting for the fedex man to drop off my glorious strano lowering springs. The stock springs in these cars are just atrocious so I finally got fed up and over hauled my exhaust for the lowering springs and they will be going in this week. I will then be adding any where from -2 to -1.5 camber to the car.

Other suspension stuff already in the car

Koni SA struts
BMR front and rear sway bars
UMI panhard bar
UMI control arms
BMR torque arm bar
UMI strut bar
UMI subframe connectors

The car will be tucking my 315 Nittos on all four corners. I wish it wasn't so late in the season. I will only probably race on this setup a couple times before the car going into storage.





More pictures to come once I get moving on this tomorrow.

Don't forget to add a big power steering cooler. I like just adding a tranny cooler for it.

What is the BMR torque arm bar? Are you just saying you put in a torque arm?

Does turn-one still rebuild the ls1 pumps for auto-x guys? He can get all the heat out of them with no performance loss and no cooler. From what I'm told.

LOL I forgot about this thread. Yes they still make turn one and no the torque arm has been in there for sometime. I finally got my strano's in I was racing on stock spring rates for some time. The strano's feel so much better in the corners I could not be happier with the results. On a side note I'm glad it only really dropped the rear of the car down its not really noticeable in the photos.

I will most likely put one in along with a oil cooler.
