So you and the SST know each other. Each waiting for....a long time.

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.
