Pfadt trailing arms

And tie rods installed.

Took a blow.torch to.the lower factory bushings. The parts fit well and are an.immediate improvement. It stayed firmly planted on a couple of fishtails and moderate launches haven't been to the track yet but I predict a lot less wheel hop

Blow torched out the bushings? That's one way to remove them!

Did you get an alignment after the install? I would highly recommend one if you didn't. The alignment made a huge difference after I installed the same Pfadt combo that you did.

+1 Sub frame bushing upgrades are a must.

I can't wait to install my Pfadt rear arm package as well, just waiting for a replacement trailing arm and then those plus the tie rods, Pfadt solid subframe bushings, Pfadt diff mounts and Pfadt engine mounts will for sure be a great improvement to the car

Looks Great! I wish Pfadt would have had those tie rods ends on the market before I bought the stiffeners. They look much better.
