Just a suggestion for the toe rods, I am running the 1LE/ZL1 rods with the spherical bearings.

The rods themselves are identical to the SS, but instead of the soft factory bushings or a slightly stiffer urethane bushing they utilize spherical bearings. Because of the way the loading is applied to the toe rods, the real controlling factor on how well they perform is through the bearings. By eliminating any potential binding because of the bearings, the rod will be able to perform to it's capacity.

Plus, you can find a set of take-offs in the marketplace for under $100 (bought mine for $70).


For the price, you could also look into the Spohn brand carried by JDP. Their bushings are a little stiffer than BMR, and the prices are comperable. Another option would be to look at LSR.

You really can't go wrong with any of them.
