Saw them in person when I got a tune. Once my coilovers and sway bars go on these will follow shortly thereafter with gears. They seem like a good deal since they are a few hundred dollars less expensive.

There is some pics on the adm 1100 Hp ZL1 stealth build thread on page 4. They are really high quality. I'll be getting some installed soon with my subframe bushings.

I think they are on there website. But the upper control arm mounts are fairly new. They might not be on there yet. I saw a pic of them in the thread I listed above.

I'll let you know how they work. Should cure my rear end sway when cornering hard in my convertible. Plus keeping the wheels straight with the upper amounts. I plan on installing rear arms also.

I'm sure they'll be great. I've already got energy suspension full replacements in and they were a significant difference. A big improvement in straight line take off and staying planted around turns. If you get BMR arms make sure you get the outer trailing arm bushing, the pfadts already come with it.

After this the only part left on my suspension is the upper control arm bushing but I will probably get pfadt's. I don't trust solid bushings in that location for road course use but thats just me. That and camber plates and suspension done.

Nice. I'm looking at installing arms also when I do the bushings. I'll probably hit the strip more with my build. So I'm going solid up top.

Yes it is. Can't wait to get them installed. They are really high quality and can't wait to get it on the track to establish a baseline run.

If I'm not mistaken theirs isn't solid. Stiff but not quite like pfadt or ADM.

I saw first hand what the subframe bushings and upper control arm composite mounts do on the dyno. Saw a 650 RWHP car doing some pulls on dyno. I can say they work really well. I did not see any wheel flex at all. Rear wheels stayed straight and square. That should definitely get some great traction. I'm ready for my rear suspension to get installed.

They're excellent. They look like every other cradle bushing when installed so not sure what it is you're looking for.
