Thanks for the info!

I just wonder since I'm IPF'd too and having to drop the cradle like everybody has stated might as well get the full bushing? But I don't think we'll be making that much power to need them?

For a bolt on V6, a poly bushing will suffice, but a S/C v6 or any V8 should really consider going with the Pfadt solid aluminum bushings. Honestly, regardless of power level, I see no reason to do anything less than a solid bushing other than to try and save money.. We have customers all the time that take out their inserts and poly bushings to go with Pfadt's solid bushings. They are a bit spendy, but you never have to think about them again.

Best regards,

Tyler

I have seen the rear wheels flex forward on the dyno with high horsepower cars. About 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch. That puts a bad toe in and puts a severe bind on your car during acceleration. The combination of the two really keep it straight. If you already have some arms you will have a killer setup. Straight launches and no wheelhop.
These are now in the hands of 3 new dealers -

Too much for my wallet so I guess full bushings are in my future. Shame tho, if Matt at FSP has them he could just throw them in while he has my car.

We're installing a set of the Detroit Speed solid sub-frame mounts on Tuesday. I've been running the Pfadt mounts for 2 years now and the NVH is minimum. I'm sure it will be the same with the DSE mounts and they quality is excellent!



I'll post my impressions after we run at the USCA Event at Laguna Seca next weekend.

Kind regards,

These are the adm subframe bushings. Priced around $500. Both high quality and functionally correct.

+1 for ADM. That's probably the way I'll go with my build once I figure out which trailing arms/toe rods I want and the budget recovers from Uncle Sam bending me over...

I would go with either BMR or Sphon TA/TR and I guess you'll have to use BMR TA bushings. I would've recommended Pfadt TA bushings but those aren't an option anymore. I think BMR is just a little cheaper than Sphon but not by much.

I've been very happy with BC coilovers for what I do with them. They are basically $1k plus install.

Then do a set of ADM full bushings.

Those are very similar to the Pfadt mounts...

The Spohn arms are nice; I've been running them on my Camaro for close to 2 years now. I have the Chromoly with the Del-Sphere and they've been great.

I'm looking at the Spohn TA/TR with the BMR bushings. I would be doing the ADM solid bushings at the same time simply for ease of install.

I'm also leaning towards the Megan coilovers. Easy on the budget and easy to adjust.

I have the Spohn Del-Sphere trailing arms. They are definitely more money but if anyone watches how the Del-Sphere works I think you would be sold on it as well.



When I did my trailing arms I didn't have the extra money for the Del-Sphere arms but that might have to be something I go back and do one day. I ended up going with the BMR non-adjustable toe rod but probably should've at least stuck with the Sphon non-adjustable. I think at the time BMR were only $30 cheaper. Nothing wrong with them it's just a little odd to see my toe rod in a box shape and my trailing arm in a round shape but I guess I'm spreading the love to all vendors. I have or have had something for a majority of the suspension vendors.....Pedders, Pfadt, Hotchkis, BMR, Spohn, Whiteline, BC, Energy Suspension, and LSR have all been on my car at some point.
