Which toe and tie?

Looking at BMR - what ones do I need?

Looking to upgrade for my spirited weekend driving and occasional road course (less than 3x/year). Not sure I need adjustable but just don’t know. Lots of options ams hoping to get some feedback. As mentioned, looking at BMR in particular as I have their LCAs, tunnel brace, front/rear sway bars, 4 pt strut tower brace and Detroit speed end links. Car is on airlift 3P system.

Please let me know if anything else I should do while I’m tackling this. I know bushings could make a difference but Indo consistently take 3-4 hour drives through mountains and deserts and want it drives me with out the hard noise and drive ability I hear on some of these upgrades.

Any insight or feedback is more than welcome.

TIA!

I run the DSE rods an PAFDT cradle bushings they don’t transmit any noise or vibes now if you put poly bushings in the Diff that’s a different story.

If you haven't installed them already, the outer trailing arm bushings (the ones that go in the rear knuckle) are a great upgrade. I have a brand new set from BMR if interested.

I did toe rods and trailing arms from bmr. Solid cradle bushings from Detroit speed. Cradle bushing are a superior track upgrade but street is very harsh now.

Damn really?

I’ve heard such mixed reviews on harshness. Don’t want an uncomfortable ride for long drives.

What toe and trailing arm part numbers did you get?

I have a set of solid cradle bushings from PAFDT an they do not transmit any harshness into the car, but as I stated earlier if you run poly bushings in the Diff it will transmit the harshness. Solid bushings will help with acceleration and keep the tires planted because the cradle doesn’t have a chance to roll or bind up.

Yeah I’m definitely going to solid if I do them I’ll go full on. Appreciate the insight! Think shop charge 5/6 hours? Less?
