It's been lengthily discussed in at least 2 detailed threads here over the decades worth looking for. Pluses claimed of more positive input, less flex, stronger, and fewer moving parts have been countered by real costly, marginal documented (measured) improved performance over well-maintained orig. design, numerous interferences to contend with, and no one reported knowing anyone who did a B- or D- body. Sweet Mfg. is a name I recall had been considering a kit or was at least contacted about it. Some even researched A- and G- body chats for any possible leads. Marginal market base to start with, and dwindling even more from there = not holding my breath.

I need rear, adjustable upper trailing arms (control arms). I have searched the forum and people seem to think UMI is a good brand, but everything I'm reading is from at least 5 years ago. Does anyone have a recent opinion? Is this still the consensus? Your opinions and experience are...
I was able to get my intermediate shaft out in 2 sections, but I can't get out the plastic shroud. What's the trick to getting out the plastic shroud? It's stuck by the brake lines, and control arm bolt.
My plan is to load the intermediate shaft with grease, and bolt the factory shaft...
How far down should the I shaft go in the splines? There are 2 sets of splines with a gap in between. Should it be fully seated to the bottom ??
I can't get the intermediate shaft past 1/4" ...... on the stub..
Any tips ?
