if all i want to do is go low 7's or possibly high 6s.will an aftermarket tranny mounted torque arm be sufficient? or should i get one that mounts to the crossmember?

Even on stock power, YOU NEED to get that arm off your trans.. Period. that was a bad Idea on Gms part..

Yea, like others have said crossmember mounted should have been factory.

Body mounted arm works great in your power range. Check out the one MWC makes here...works great on street and track and is priced very affordable. Comes in a powdercoated finish and includes a driveshaft loop at no extra cost.

I run lower 7's on the stock tq arm. I haven't wanted to change becuase of the noise people have said the aftermarket arms make.

Mainly with the short Arm. I run a BMR full length with a remote mount cross member and its not any louder then stock. I was running 7.20s at that time.

I run the Madman Extreme Chromoly chassis mounted(dedicated tq. arm mount) with the slider nose on mine.

Love it wouldn't use any other.

I had a solid mounted spohn with a body mount and fixed clam shell nose and it clunked more than this rod ended solid mount does I have now.
