upgrading suspension after some power mods

hi all,

looking at BMR (unless others can point me elsewhere) and not quite sure what exactly I would need that isnt overkill. currently the car put down 520rwhp NA. there are 4 levels of suspension that they offer for the kits and I am not sure if level 2 or 3 is all I need. it is my daily and will rarely see the track but will see some aggressive street pulls at times. thank you all

Solid cradle bushings at a minimum keeps the rear candle from shifting/moving around.

I have BMR toe rods, trailing arms, and camber bolts, also Pegasus solid subframe bushings, and am very happy with them

Give TC a call tomorrow, he will take care of you

I might as well pile on here. BMR stuff is solid and works well with these cars. Call the man, "Their sh@t works".

You can't go wrong with BMR. We have them and a few other options listed on our site all with great prices and free shipping. Are you looking to launch better or some upgrades for road racing?

I went with BMR:

TR002 - toe rods
TCA026 - trailing arms
BK006 - outer trailing arm bushings
BK039 - rear upper c/a delrin bushings with bracket


and for solid cradle bushings i went with detroit speed engineering 1 piece solid aluminum bushings


No more wheelhop. FINALLY!

I just ordered the BMR TCA026 and BK006. I hope it gets rid of my wheel hop issue on certain surfaces. If this don't work, I'll have to call BMR and see what direction to go from there.

use the 2 prong puller method to remove the TA outer bushings.

Bingo! Auto Zone loans the pullers out. My big issue now is finding 4 jack stands because I'm doing the G2 kit on my calipers at the same time.
