Trailing Arms - Downsides?

So, I intend to replace the factory trailing arms because I hate the wheel hop. But, I need to know if there are any downside side effects of this modification. Please advise. Thanks!

Nope!!!
If you do get into arms that are solid rod ends then you can lose some ride quality....but i only saw one set of BMR toe rods that are like that.

You will be happy with the upgrades.

Only down fall at all is about 4 lbs of weight. Well worth it if you want to help stop wheel hop. Great deal on the BMR's best I have seen and used out in the market to date. The upper toe rods work well too. Car will stay more planted in accel.

The 2 primary bushing upgrades to reduce wheel hop are the subframe or cradle bushing movement and the rear diff bushings. Adding just trailing arms or the inner bushing is only a partial fix. There are 2 bushings per trailing arm. But bushings should be replaced if you want to upgrade trailing arm bushings for additional rear support.
