I noticed your videos of your runs at Sebring...have you run the billet arms and toe links at the track?

I didn't realize how much the stock arms allow the wheel hub to torque around. The video of your arms showed none of that.
Any increased road noise with your arms?

No increase at all in noise. These are a mod that really helps you put power down to the ground. Keeps that wheel in place.

Sorry, I should have asked this before...What type of bushings do you use? I'm concerned about squeeks.

No problem cam. We have energy suspension bushing make us some bushings for our arms and links. We install them. I haven't heard any squeaks. I watched the video again and i didn't hear any in there also. Thats with a stock exhaust. Hope this helps. If you like i could take video inside so you could kind of see how it sounds. Let me know. Thanks

No need to make another video. I'll grease the bushing sleeves when I install these, just in case. Thanks.
