i suggest going poly/rod on the LCAs and PHB, poly/poly aftermarket lcas and phb create alot of bind, makes it hard for the rearend to articulate.

And get a relocation cross member. Get the torque arm off the tranny. Pinion angle can move if the mount gets weak.

I'm thinking about LCA relocation brackets for spectator drags. Hopefully help keep the rear planted better on a launch. I'd like to see if the benefit of that will outweigh the roll induced oversteer around the corners.

I stay away from all of UMI's stuff.

Ussually all BMR and make sure the LCA's and panhard bar are fully adjustable. Relocation brackets are needed if the car is lowered.

Any reason on staying away from UMI?

yuppp.......had a friend of mine going 10.50's with a t56 nitrous car snap a UMI torq arm right off the rear end last year.............BMR FTMFW........


and OP your two most important parameters for makign that car hook is your torq arm / pinion angle and your LCA angle......your LCA's should NOT be facing upwards towards the rear end like most of the F bodys do lol
