I have heard very good things about the Kars equipment. Does anyone have a phone number for contact to order parts if the company still exists? Thank you

From what I heard last you'll only find them used. However, BMR has a pinion brace and spectre works has the rear cradle bushings.

I chose to get the G-force econo axle myself, but my car came with a pinion brace and "supplemental" bushings from a TSB fix some time in the past. My wheel hop isn't bad and I think the axle shaft should make it almost non-existent considering my moderate driving habits.

I thought there were issues with the BMR pinion brace?

Axles from g-force or hendrix are know to help in reducing wheel hop and yeah I'm pretty sure the guy that was making the kars kit is no longer making them. I don't even think he posts anymore.

It's been said that under extreme conditions the brace can put more stress on the case. Under normal driving conditions it reduces clunkiness and movement in the driveline.

I dont know too much about the kars kit, but I bought a gforce axle and it greatly reduced wheel hop. Only time I get wheel hop is in the rain, but other than that it is great. If wheel hop is what you are trying to get rid of, I would get the gforce axle.

just my 2 cents

Thanks for the replies. My next question would be in regards to the BMR Pinion support, the current bushing is bad. Should I have that replaced in conjunction with the BMR support or is the BMR support enough?

Thanks

I would stick to getting anti wheel hop axles. The BMR support and the Kars Kit aren't all they're "cracked" up to be.

You'll also need to replace the differential bushing if it's worn out. I would recommend the Creative Steel bushing, installation tool rental, and the differential poly block.
