Gears & Axles - Does the stock torque arm have a bow to it?
07-15-2002, 08:49 PM
Was installing a different rear end in my car over the weekend and noticed that my t/a looks bent (no question its not straight, more like bowed then bent) but that would be almost impossible at my featherweight horsepower level. Do they look bowed from the factory? I've got a wheel hop problem that I'm trying to solve too....

I dont think mine has a curve to it.. i mean it might have a slight one because of how they form the metal.. but id take it off and lay it on something flat, or check yours against a buddies..
For the wheel hop, get a 1le tranny mount and a prothan torque arm bushing.. good cheap places to start, and it fixed mine.
