Default BMR LCA'S and PHB in!

i put in my BMR LCA's and PHB in this morning. i got one QA1 end and one Poly end model for both the LCA and PHB. i love it. it sticks alot better. i am still adjusting the rear Koni's and playing around with that.

and for anybody who thinks that having a rodend/poly setup will kill ride comfort, it doesnt. rides like a dream and sticks like crazy on corners and with a little adjustment on the shocks it launches crazy and sticks and doesnt go sideways any more.

BMR torque arm is next!

Are they single or double adjustable? BMR does not have poly/rod combo's on their website. Is that something you can special order? Thanks.

Default Phr010

Joe,
PHR010 is the part number. It is a new product that we released last summer. It is not on the website yet, but it should be. We'll put it up there on Monday morning!!

The PHR010 is TIG-welded from DOM steel. It has a low-deflection polyurethane bushing on one side and a QA1 rod end on the other side. It has an adjuster, so it is ON-CAR adjustable!!!

At $139.95, it is priced lower than similar products from other F-Body suspension companies.

PS- Go Panthers!!

Yes, TCA004 is the part number. This was released at the same time as the PHR010. We'll put it up on our website on Monday morning and we'll post some pics up here also.

The TCA004 is TIG-welded from DOM steel. It has a low-deflection polyurethane bushing on one side and a QA1 rod end on the other side. And just like the PHR010, this part is ON-CAR adjustable also!!!

At $209.95, it is priced lower than similar products from other F-Body suspension companies.

Thanks Dennis. Looks like PHR010 is listed with the wrong price though. Any concerns with the strength of the adjusters on the control arms at the dragstrip (say for 10-second cars)?

Thats the correct price, just $5 more than our poly/poly bar. The adjusters are 3/4" chrome moly with 3/4" QA1 XR series rod ends. They will have no problem handling a 10 second car.

Ah cool, the panhard was listed as the same price as the control arms this morning...fixed now. I didn't think they would have any problems, but just had to to ask.

The poly/rod combo panhard bar is the best bar with the least amount of binding. The rod end goes on the rearend side and has better movement and less binding than the poly only ended bars. This feature is better if you do road racing or "spirited" street driving. For drag racing the poly/poly bar will work fine. If you go with a poly/poly bar just make sure you keep it well greased and use the correct grease. A synthetic based grease is the correct type. This is the proper grease to use on all urethane bushings. We offer this grease in a cartridge.
