I believe so. I gotta do something now before the fest. I won't be as set as he is, but I'll be better. Plus I gotta get my catch can in place.

We know, we are not guessing where the most motion comes from in the 5th Gen IRS.

#1 Factory Sub-Frame Bushes
#2 Factory Toe Link Bushes

Sub-frame inserts will correct most of the sub-frame bush induced motion. Full bushes will virtually eliminate it.

Replacing the OE rubber toe link bushes with Pedders bushes brings the toe link under control.

There is no need to replace the arms, unless you are running slicks like LPE on the Black Pig with over 1,200 RWHP. In that case you are replacing the arms with spherical rod ends that rattle like a coffee can with a handful of loose nuts and bolts.

#3 Trailing Arm Bushes
#3 Upper Rear Bushes
#3 Differential Bushes
#3 Trailing Arm Knuckle Bush

The most important 'mod' for drag racing is rear wheel alignment. Straighten up the toe and reduce negative camber. The more square to the track surface, the better your rear tires will bite.

We have tested this at the highest possible levels and this post is based on data, not opinion and not a test drive. Sorry for the lecture on suspension in your build thread.

PQ, dont you want to have a colorful front and rear suspension,

Stare deeply into the colors, you are reaching into your wallet...

hell, you may be the only customer on here with a custom named store just for you...

No it isn't all the same brand, it's a variety of brands actually, I think they are all goood and will deliver more than most of us could ever extract from them... Pedders, BMR, Eibach, Pfadt, etc... different philosophies, all good equipment...

The goldish bronze colored pieces are the solid subframe bushings. The red bar in the top photo is obviously the sway bar... I need some new end links for those...
The red bar in the lower pic is the toe rod, and the trussed silver piece below it is the trailing arm.. Something you cant see is the delrin differential bushings... which are actually sitting on the floor when these pics were taken. We were getting reayt to install them, and the great big grey rod with the blue boot is the DSS power delivery system... axles...
