Greg, I bought the BMR torque arm and it bolted right up to the 9". Looks like you have to weld that mount in also and I don't know where that would end up with the th400 crossmember, that's something to think about.

right now you need to dig down deep within yourself and decide... are you looking to keep driving the car or turn it into the baddest mofo around?

putting all hardcore drag racing stuff on the car will make you hate it, stop driving it, and want to sell it in 2 years. (unless you enjoy drag racing)

The measurements I took were from the end of the tailshaft housing to the center of the yoke of the rear. As far as how long it took, I waited there while he did it. I was there for an hour or so and we bullshitted quite a bit

I bought the bmr crossmember too so it just bolted right up to that. It was a pain in the ass to get it bolted up though.
