Default UMI torque arm length

I know I need one, so I'm planning on getting one very soon since my pinion angle is probably way off right now (new moser 9") and UMI is what I have all under the car now anyway
I understand the bennifits for the most part between the tunnel mount and the full length but have no personal experience. I want to stick with the full length adjustable because price is way better and I'm not sure the mounts for tunnel mount will fit my exhaust (custom TD) but Iv heard the tunnel mount is alot less drive able? Not sure but thought I'd ask.
So question is am I okay still using full length? Right now I'm at full bolt ons with 9" and 3.90s. Future plans are H/C/I street/strip

Also another thing I wanted to get UMI's attention to ask, would I be able to get a rear sway bar mounting kit that will fit my stock size sway bar but with a 3" axle tube for the 9"? Desperately need that back on there my locker is shaking that rear around lol

Thanks for thinking of us!

You can use this mount kit with your bar:

And this bushing:

The full length torque arm fits most exhausts as it doesn't involve the tunnel brace. The tunnel mounted torque arm optimizes 60ft times but you can still make a car launch well with a full length.

Here are some install pics so you can see how the TSP True Duals require a long torque arm. I know you don't have TD's but the photos help in many cases for other exhausts as well.

I was looking for that bushing! If I were to order something now, would you have any clue if it would be able to get to Texas by the 9th? If you don't know that's fine I can call or whatever.
So the TD's do require the longer trans mounted torque arm? My exhaust is basically a modified TSP TD system... So I'm guessing I'd have to either way.

Receipt to TX by the 9th would depend on exactly which part(s) you ordered. The best thing to do would be to call or email [email protected] with your part numbers - and powder coat colors.

In most cases, the TD type exhausts can't use the tunnel mount since the crossover tends to be right there.

thx

You can use the T/A in the factory location on the trans and then add the relocation kit at a later date. The longer T/A and relocation kit costs more than the short one because there's more material in it and also more fabrication and welding...
