Okay I know there is something out here to center up my rear tires in the wheel well of my 9c1. I just had new arms put on due to a recall notice but it did not move my tires back. I have heard of kits to move em back. Anyone please know? [img]4.gif[/img]

http://www.azsupersport.com/controlarms.htm lists them. I haven't updated the pricing in a while but it should be close.

Remember: If you get the extended lowers, you also have to get extended (or adjustable) uppers, to keep the diff pinion angle right. I got the Metco's installed a few months ago and love them; they really firmed up and settled the rear. And don't forget an extended driveshaft is also required (I believe, but it IS an arguable point). Do a search for the pro's and con's; it's all here on the forum.

I ordered my kit from BRM with adjustable uppers. How much is need to add for the drive line 3/4" also?

These cars love my wallet but it just gets more fun to drive.

NOS=549.95
pistons=368.00
cam=239.98
valve train=648.33
crank, rods, balancer, flex plate 1200.00
SSRI 319.00
z cluster and donor $330.00
headers=550.00
need I go on all this in less than a week. I know some really go wild but this is just a cruiser no real show involved.

But I know it will go faster and faster and fast, hey did I say it might go faster? [img]4.gif[/img] [img]4.gif[/img]

I sell the BMR's for $289.90 with the fixed upper or $349.90 with the adjustable uppers.

Both prices include shipping.

You might want to think about a longer drive shaft too.

Inland Empire $350.00 shipped
Dynotech Engineering $440.00 shipped.

Thanks

When you say "think about a longer driveshaft" is that because the arms can be installed with the original driveshaft?

Exactly, you can do it without doing a new shaft or extending the old one. You are out of GM "spec" for proper amount of yoke in the back of the transmision. You can wipe out the tailshaft bushing among other things.

Some have done it with no problems, but more I think have had problems.

I just got my extended uppers and lowers from [email protected] today. WOOHOO!!!

Damn these things are beefy.

Here are some pics of the parts.







I also got the loop (above).

Thanks, Mike.

Thanks, No Limits, that's what it sounded like. Looks like I'll have to factor in the cost of the extended driveshaft when I do the mod....can't forget the stainless steel brakeline that will have to be custom made to replace the short one as well.

If you do the 3/4" extension, you will need the extended driveshaft. If you only do the 1/2" extension you might not. I can't remember who sells the 1/2" kit. I think it was Hochkis.
