Talking BMR suspension mods done

Finally got most of the suspension mods I wanted to install and ready to get a little seat time. Installed BMR trailing arms & adjustable toe rods, BMR front and rear sways, as well as the BMR 1" lowering springs. Upgraded some rear bushings but havent jumped off into a full cradle bushing swap (yet). I do have the Peddlers agressive street alighnment setup in the car now. Obtw, the elongation of the front subframe mounts was a PITA and took the most time (and blood). LOL

And looking to make a drive up to Valdosta for the "pony wars" and run the strip and autox event and have some fun with the SS in a few weeks. Any C5 guys going to run the autoX ? I could use some pointers on air pressure and sway bar setups that can be done onsite as I plan on driving up there. PM me.

Congrats on the upgrade! Nice touch painting the stock endlinks. How are you liking the setup so far?

Best regards,

Those new parts are just a little bit beefier than what they are replacing.

Tyler- I havent had the chance to test the handling limits yet but the general feel of "spirited" runs on some of a few curvy backroads and a few adandoned parking lot manuevers and I can tell a noticable difference. Havent been back to the 1/8 mile strip yet to see how it launches on a prepped track but the rear end feels a little better planted and I havent noticed that walking around feeling when I hard plant the throttle in a turn. I hope to see how it feels in Valdosta in the autoX where I can actually see my timed runs. Only 8k on the original Pzeros so I will see how they do.

Right on, you'll have to update us after your event. You should see a HUGE improvement!

Thanks. But nothing was in a package, I just picked out the parts to suit my intended driving style and went from there. I wanted to go a little lower in ride height but decided I would rather enjoy driving it more if I didnt. It seems to ride almost as good as the factory springs, I think it may have lost a little weight transfer to the rear from a dig but maybe its just my perception, only another track day will tell.
Obtw, most everything I ordered for this Camaro was either from Chase or Tyler. Both great guys to deal with. FYI- Even if you dont see it in their website catalog, it doesnt mean they dont sell it. Call them.

They are OEM. Just color matched them with paint. I did not find any manufacturer who made anything that was stronger or better looking to put on so I just painted the originals.

The only aftermarket FE4 rear links I know of are made by Detroit Speed (DSE). They are adjustable and super nice. The ends also pivot rather than relying on the deflection of the stock bushings.
