Dear BMR, please send my shocks and rotor hat bolts, too. They're kind of important. Thanks.

red (steel) stuff is all powdercoat, wilwood hats and the calipers/brackets (alum) are anodized. Just missing both shocks, shock hardware, and rotor to hat bolts... lol. Working the bugs out of shipping a new kit with a lot of parts I guess

To racecar or not to racecar... that is the question.

I think I'm going to start with just the suspension pieces for now, and I'll worry about brakes/hubs at a later date. That's about all the budget will allow.....kinda nice that you can piece this together a little at a time if necessary. But gotta sell my Pfadt Coilovers first!!!

429, can you show me a close-up pic of your TCA033 Trailing arms, the outboard end that connects to the hub??? Brett was telling me yesterday that there was a redesign in the way the outer brackets were shaped, and if they aren't exactly like what is pictured on the BMR website, that they would need to be swapped out for the newer version to run 15" wheels. From a distance, the ones in your picture look slightly different than what is pictured below.

They are certainly nice, I have them too. But after getting that information from Brett yesterday, I think mine are the same as yours, and I'm going to have to swap them out for the newer redesign.

I'm going to be taking mine off tomorrow, I'll take some pictures and post them. It's just the way the mount brackets are attached/welded to the tube.

Compare where the welds of the plates are to the tubes, to the stock picture. They are moved inboard the tube roughly 1/4" per side, increasing clearance.

No, I think the picture on the BMR Website that I posted is what you are SUPPOSED to have if you want to run 15" Wheels. You might want to send a picture to Brett and ask.

Can't be. The mounts moved inboard creates more wheel clearance.

But the brackets are the same exact distance apart at the mounting holes. And on the new design the brackets are much narrower, only about as wide as the tube itself. I would confirm with BMR just to be sure. Brett's exact words to me yesterday in a PM were:
"double-check your version of the TCA033 arms. We had to revise them for this kit to clear the 15" wheel. If you have the old ones you will need to update them to the newer ones to make sure you don't have any clearance issues. Just compare the rear brackets on yours to the ones shown on the website (website has newest version) to make sure you have the correct ones. We are offering a trade-in program on these for customers wanting to run 15's. Just give Kyle a call once you figure out what you have and he can arrange the swap."

You don't have the same ones as on the website, and mine are the same as yours. Why they would send you the incorrect ones in the first place confuses me, but I would double check with them before installing!!! Just sayin'......
