Now, considering this is a bushing thread, was the street z or street 1 kit worth it? Night and day difference in the rear cradle bushings?
Yes. I absolutely felt the cradle bushings (even though they aren't a full bushing). I might do a full bushing one day but the inserts have worked for me so far.

I initially had the Hotchkis brace because of ease of install. Never really felt that one. Took it off and sold it for other mods and haven't missed it yet.

I would imagine that you have all your parts by now as long as UPS did their job.

Once you get everything installed let me know what you think, I would definitely appreciate any feedback you could give us.

I would love to buy the best of everything but cannot afford to. I will let you guys know how my parts perform if I have a chance to take my car for an alignment before winter. Montreal is already experiencing 0 degree weather at night. Thanks everybody for the feedback, much appreciated.
I don't imagine you will have any kind of issues with your BMR parts but if you do you can get a hold of me here or give me a call at the shop and we can get you squared away. When you get the parts installed let us know how everything works for you.

On a non lowered car do you still need the eccentric bolts for the alignment. I got the pedders insert and pfadt trailing arms toe rods zl1 sways and upper control arm bushings curious about the eccentric bolts

How much are you lowered? 1" is ok but approaching 1 1/2" you will need the eccentrics in order to dial in the camber back to zero!

No, you don't need them. Plenty of adjustment available with the OEM bolts.

I missed that he asked about NON lowered. What I said is true, it just didn't answer his question!

You answered his question. Anything that's lowered pass 1" will need the eccentrics bolts. Since he's not lowered at all he's good to go! Plus, you also answered a future question if he does lower his car!

Glad craddle incerts are working out. I was debating on those or full bushings as I alot x alot. Dont want it to firm on bumps or noise, if any so think incerts will do for me. Pedders for sure but I hear Whiteline are just as good and not squishy, and cheaper

Man if you're auto crossing I would go with full bushings! The Pedders inserts are good but for any kind of track use the inserts may not do the job! With the full bushings I really didn't notice any increase in NHV, maybe a hair but nothing to worry about!
