So iam building a 410w should be around 550hp 550+ftlbs, using a 9"rearend. I got real good price on basically a comp enginerering complete rear suspension. After buying the parts I am really having second thoughts about using any of it. Just wanting some opinions on the parts, main concern is the coilovers and ARB, im assuming the control arms will be ok...

Uppers with sperical bushings (C8005)
Lowers (C8007)
AntiRollbar (C2020)
Coilover kit with 3100lb springs

I have non adj boxed polyurethane lowers. They've been on the car for over 6yrs. No cracks or bends. I'm happy with them.

My uppers are double adjustables with spherical bushings on the chassis side. The welds look nice. I haven't been to the track yet with the uppers yet.

The ARB's are pure junk. They flex as if you have no ARB installed at all.

I have no idea about the rest of the parts.

Yea, I think he is but last I knew is on 17" DR's so he probably isn't stressing the ARB that much. He can chime in and fill in the details.

In this thread XJHEAD posted a pic of how much his bar flexed so you can judge for yourself:

I diagnose this issue several times a year with those ARB's and the "fix" is to weld a piece of 1" angle iron across the main bar from down link to down link to help make the bar more rigid.

I have the Pro Launch #2 with the 5/8 upgrade and his ARB. His stuff is top notch.
