Thumbs up BMR Launches New Product - G8 Trailing Arms (TCA026)

BMR Fabrication Trailing Arms for the Pontiac G8



Stabilize your Pontiac G8 caster settings and minimize wheelhop under performance driving conditions with a set Trailing Arms from BMR Fabrication. Superior to the factory stamped steel arms, BMR Trailing Arms are composed of 1” x 2” x .120 wall rectangular steel and 3/16” CNC laser cut steel plates. In contrast to the open factory rubber bushings, the BMR Trailing Arms (TCA026) utilize fully-fluted, greaseable, low-deflection polyurethane bushings for fluent operation. Available in black hammertone or red powdercoat finishes.

To preview all of BMR’s high-performance suspension parts, please visit www.bmrfabrication.com, email sales@bmrfabrication.com, or contact them at BMR Fabrication, 12581 US Highway 301 North, Thonotosassa, FL 33592, 813-986-9302, Fax: 813-986-8055.

Does BMR have any plans for a lightweight k-member / a-arm setup?

The front cradle is pretty robust, but the "A Arms" don't need replacing.

This pic (stolen from Wretched) , shows the front Radius Rod and front lower control arm. They are pretty light-weight to begin with.

G8s have a MacPherson Strut front-end?! WTF? I thought they had SLA front ends like F-bodies and vettes

I wish....

MacPherson can handle ok but nothing can control camber curve like double wish bone.

How much of a loss is it?
I don't know.

But I am sure MacPherson + IRS is better than Double Wish bone and live axle.

That is cool

I went to the track last night and I did have significant wheel hop any time i tried to put power to the wheels.

I was only able to land a 11 98 on 1000 without loosing complete traction. I tried....


Better tires and possibily these trailing arms could help



how do the trailing arms really help?
are we seeing an issue where the factory trailing arm is allowing the wheel to move back and forth in relation to the body under load?


also i will probably have to look into getting some new tires
thanks

Stops the wheel hop. If you really want to hook, install Pedders rear subframe and diff bushings and the control arms.
