Here's a great tech article from LSXTV on a BMR suspension upgrade on a 2010 SS.

Dang, went all the way with it. 14 seconds is an enormous amount of time to drop off of a sub 2-minute lap, really impressive. Does the front tunnel brace really tie into the front subframe? There is one pic on the BMR site kind of showing it but the other two negate it. I have seen an LSR piece (and Spohn maybe?) that connects those two front subframe mounts but didn't realize it could all be tied into the tunnel brace.

The BMR Driveshaft Tunnel Brace (DTB004) bolts in the factory location, and when installed in conjunction with the Subframe Connectors (SFC015) it links the two connector braces (left and right) together.

Is that be considered to be the Level 4 suspension package? Are packages customizable IE upgraded bushings?

Great article and I saved it but doesn't the Camaro pictured driving at the end show a V6 car?

I thought this was installed on a V8?

The parts they installed in the article are not exactly the same parts in the LVL 4 package. In the article, they used TCA033 trailing arms and TCA029 rear lower control arms, and they installed a strut tower brace. The LVL 4 package has TCA026 trailing arms and TCA028 rear lower control arms and does not include a strut tower brace. Of course, we can custom build a package for you to build up the exact package you want. Just give me a call and I can put together exactly what you need.

Actually, the car in the last picture is 2010 SS with a ZL1 front bumper on it. That's why you don't see the "mail slot".
