I had JDP Motorsports install the SPOHN rear trailing arms on my SS. But I just did the first level Polyurethane arms. But I can tell you the car digs squats and launches a whole lot better now. Now I'm not taking it to a drag strip but on those wide open desolate roads I tend to try a couple burnouts here and there

No problem....after watching the Del-Sphere video and seeing how they work I was SOLD. I've been very happy with them. The regular Del-Sphere are a little on the heavy side but not enough to make a real difference in my mind. I bet the chrome-molly ones will be awesome. Make sure to post pics when you get them.

BTW: some people suggest changing out the lower bushing of the wheel hub. I didn't do that but I might go back and do it at some point. You might consider doing it while you're there. I don't think Spohn has any poly bushings for it but I know Pfadt does. I think they sell for about $100. You might talk with Spohn and get their take on it.

I never had any wheel hop on the streets at all...only at the track. The track is a totally different animal. Give it a try some time without the TAs. Just make sure to let off if you start getting wheel hop so that you don't break something. Then if you do get the hop get some TAs and give it a try again so you can see the difference.

Personally I would at least put on the basic TA. They are pretty cheap and easy to put on with no alignment required. If you look at the difference from the factory TA to any of the aftermarket TA you'll know it can't do anything but help.

Thanks for the info, that's good advice and exactly what I think I'll do. I had wondered if the track prep might contribute to just enough extra grip to promote wheel hop over the dust pebbles on normal roads. Ssooch, it's good to hear you can tell a difference even off the track also. That's what I was hoping to hear!

Thanks guys.

Do your burnout marks ever show signs of breakup? I get the breakup in the ends of my burnouts probably about where I shift two second gear.

I would say no but maybe I need to look closer next time to be able to answer that with any confidence. I'll look next time. Not today though - it's 98 degrees and rising here today! Lol

I just ordered the front sway bar from Spohn to compete the underside of my car. Front and rear sway bars with exptreem links along with the Spohn trailing arms. I hope most of my wheel hop will be gone and that I could take the turns a bit faster and flatter now.

Cool....you definately need to start a new thread with pics and a review of what you think about the upgrade. I don't think I've seen anyone review or post pics of their sway bars.

I will start a new thread once everthing is installed. I'm going with the sway bars for autocross racing, I need every advantage I can get.
