So within the next week, my MM flsfc's are being welded on, and then shortly after that, my panhard bar will be coming in. And something I thought I'd share... I have heard many times that with MM's phb, you can get rid of one UCA to create a "poor man's 3-link." So I called MM today and I was assured that this is only a myth. I was told that the "poor man's 3-link" is a nice experiment to see what the added benefits of a torque are setup will be, however, it should only be done as an experiment, aka short term. Which makes sense because ridding yourself of one puts double the load on the other one, and according to MM, after a month, the bushings on the single UCA were shot.

A torque arm is also in my near future :shiftyeyes

Might want to also order their adjustable rear sway while your at it. It will only make the PHB and TA that much better. If you do that you'll pretty much have the rear end buttoned up.

Next on the list....K-member, Caster/Camber plates, LCA's and coilovers!

This is something I have always heard as well and actually saw it on the Griggs website at one point. I cannot find it any longer, but will ask John next time I see him. I never liked the idea either, but like you said, lots of us have heard it many times :dunno

Glad to see you are aligning yourself with the true path of automobile performance driving :D

Wear a diaper the first time you drive it :D

Thanks for the info about the upper control arm. As for the panhard bar, are you installing it yourself? They really aren't that expensive especially if I could install it myself.

I am going to install it myself. Looks fairly simple. Here's the instructions: http://www.maximummotorsports.com/content/install/pdf/rear_susp/MMPB99Ar4.pdf.
