BMR End-Links and Toe Rods Installed

I did the install at my house this weekend and it was fun. The only part that sucked was having to drop the rear cradle to install the driver side toe rod... other than that it was cake!

Here are some pics

Those end links are just a little bit beefier than stock, huh?

Two jack stands under the front cradle and two more under the rear subframe just in front of the rear cradle. These will hold the car up and keep it stable while you lower the rear cradle. Most just use a floor jack under the rear cradle, remove the 4 bolts then lower the cradle with the jack...

I plan to put race ramps on front and jack stands in the back. When you say just take out the 4 bolts and lower with jack where is the jack positioned to keep the cradle from rocking or falling?

You can safely support the cradle with the jack under the differential. If you don't have a polyurethane pad on your jack, make sure you put a piece of plywood between it and the aluminum diff housing. you will have to play around with finding the balance center of the assembly but it's not too bad one you find it...
