BMR has great customer support! I purchased their parts 4 years ago and they still answer questions promptly when I ask.

I put Spohn trailing arms on Bee (delsphere ends). I like them much better now that they are adjusted properly. There was some significant slop in them from the factory and were very noisy, my local shop couldn't figure out what was wrong with them so they removed them. I sent them back to Spohn who then said they were fine. I ended up driving out to SLC to have the guys at JDP look at it (along with some other work) and they were able to install and adjust them properly.

No complaints with them since.

As much as I love to support BMR, when it comes to spherical ends, I am going to have to recommend Spohn Del-Sphere option on this one.

Watch this video and learn a little more about them and make your own informed decision.



We used these arms for about 3 years on our shop SS before switching to Detroit speed. When we took them off, they were still good as new and we sold them to another customer who is still running them on his car to this day.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler
