Exclamation G-Force Rear Suspension and Halfshaft Upgrade! Pics

Had a customer with a LS3 2010 Camaro SS break a rear CV joint. We went ahead and gave it the works!

2010 Camaro SS LS3
  • Driveshaft Shop Stage 5 Axels
  • BMR Rear Trailing Arms
  • BMR Rear Toe Arms
  • Eibach Pro Kit


The car rides great!

BMR vs Stock




Halfshafts and rear suspension Installed!

Yea, but it's a bit tougher. We installed our on a drive on type lift.

The toughest part is the inner bolt on the driver side since the gas tank liner is in the way. We used a prybar to GENTLY dimple in the liner to get the bolt out (then the plastic popped back into shape). At the end we put the bolt back in the oppsite way (nut towards tank)

No clue why that bolt isn't in in the opposite direction in the first place, would make life much simpler! Even if you think that you will never be taking this apart again I would still put it back together with the bolt in the opposite direction (nut towards tank).
