Need a tq arm that moves the mount off the trans tailshaft.

BMR or Spohn? I'm leaning to the Spohn because its bolt-in.

Spohn is a high-quality piece, Chris. Its the one I'm getting with my 12-bolt and I'd suggest it to you. Fit very much
good on my buddy's car.

What I like about the Spohn other than the bolt in factor is the driveshaft loop and the fact the crossbar dips to clear the Y pipe, as mine hangs pretty low under there.

oh, Chris...

You're going to get a lot more vibrations/road noise with it mounted to the chassis, just so you know :evil4:

That's the price to pay. With a non-daily driver its much less of an issue. THe poly trans mount already added quite a bit of vibration.

oh I know. I love my poly tranny mount! The car feels a whole lot tighter (and you can watch the body shake with cam lope, hehehe)

I use the Spohn. It is a pretty piece. I have had no problems with it... but I did bend the TA mount on the Currie 9".

This picture was before it bent.

That's a nice looking piece Ryan. How is the clearence on it?
Thank you, Clearance is good depending on what exhaust is being ran. The Kooks system and stock will have no issues seeing then can run our straight cross member.

I do no that not everybody is running the Kooks set-up and hardly any still using the stock y-pipe so you would then have to go with our drop down design. On a lowered car there may be some slight scrapping, on a stock height car there should be no issues. We built the drop down cross member to fit as tight as possible yet still have appropriate y-pipe clearance. The drop down cross brace will even clear with the TSP y-pipe.

There might be some slight grinding on the rear for the 9", This I have not had the chance to try yet to be honest. It will bolt up to 12-bolts just fine. As soon as I know the answer I will post it, I am sure to try it out soon.

I apprecaite the business and we will be sure to treat you right.

Ryan

Cool. I have Kook's and my front is dropped 1.25". I should be fine then.

I wish us true-dual exhaust guys had more options as far as chassis-mounted torque arms. Right now I have the stocker on the car, but I have an alston tq arm in the garage waiting to be installed (waiting to do it at the same time as the 9").

You can make the BMR bolt in. Just weld on brackets to your SFCs, then weld some on to the cross member for the torque arm, then bolt them together. That is what my friend and I have done.

the 2 best TQ arms out there are the BMR Extreme which mounts to a supplied crossbar that ties into your SFCs wich adds additional rigidity and the Spohn Tunnel brace mounted CM TQ arm. both are adjustable and made with CM. im not sure if Spohn is still offering the TQ arm that mounts to the tranny crossmember but if he still is that is not to good of a design as the crossmember flexes under acceleration eventually leading to the cars actual frame rails to wear and seperate (crack) at the corners along the crossmember mounting point. a video of this flexing was released on ThirdGen.org you just have to search for it.
