pfadt vs bmr trailing arms toe rods

I have a 2 part question first is which brand and why both seem creditable just wants some opinions.

Second part is I am getting trailing arms for sure should I get toe rods are they really worth the money I will be making about 580hp come spring want to keep it planted and going straight

At 580hp I would do both the trailing arms and toe rods. With that much power you are inducing a lot of deflection in the bushings and the arms themselves. I would upgrade to solid rear cradle bushings as well. Both companies make great products but if you are buying within the next few days I would take advantage of our Christmas sale and go with BMR.

I'm 580+ depending on dyno and weather. I have both the toe rods and trailing arms from BMR. I also have the full cradle and upper control arm bushings, both BMR too.

I like my pfadt stuff. it's a bit lighter as well. but if you can get BMR cheaper...the difference is so minimal...buy BMR.
