Traction issues was a bushing issue !

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=231268&page=3

My car would sway back and fourth at wide open throttle, the higher the boost the worse it would be. It was an unsettling feeling, actually scary . Also we found toe links to be loose which we think was from the movement in the rear cradle
The issue presented after my turbo install and the boost was turned up.

Three of my buddy's cars had the same issue.

All cars 450 rwhp or better all cars have the same BMR trailing arm bushings.

Wasted a lot of time and money plus alot of agita, between alignments etc... Nothing worked. people were very helpfull and had a lot of ideas but nothing panned out until today. Jordan at jdp performance had an idea to try different bushings. I ordered the bushings. Installed them today and the car is fixed. She still spins but with the power it's to be expected but she goes straight again and is much safer. I'm going to have it aligned hopefully the last time for a while.

We went with pfadt outer trailing arm bushings which we found to be stiffer and larger plus the sleeve inside was larger as well.

Not trying to bash BMR At all I have BMR trailing arms toe links and subframe full poly subframe bushings which are all great quality which im very happy with. For our applications the pfadt bushings worked. Hope this is a help to anyone having the same issue.

Special thanks the Ted jannetty Cisco at newgen Jordan jdp motor sports and anyone who had given advice

I'm glad we could help you out! We've been fighting the same issue with 1 of our drag Camaros and it happens to have the BMR trailing arms with the outer bushings part # BK006. We noticed the trailing arm would move at the spindle and once we replaced those bushings the issue was fixed much like your issue.

Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions. I appreciate your business and support! Have a great day and I'll talk to you soon.

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley
