Trailing arm & toe link recomendations?

Hi there

I've been told by a number of people that I can reduce wheel hop at race start, reduce clunking noises and improve fast corner rear end stability by replacing the stock diff mounts, trailing arms and toe links.

My question - who's are you using and are they any good? There are so many options on the web, they all look similar but prices vary hugely - so please fire through your recommendation.

Thanks
Shaun

I use the Rotary Extreme ones. I don't think any of them are vastly different that I've seen. I think M2 were the original ones, or maybe it was Pettit? I don't remember. I've never heard of any issues with the cheap ones, but I've never really known anyone who tracked their car with them either. I'm sure people have, I just don't know any.

As far as diff mounts(don't know if you are asking about those as well or not), but I'd go with the Super Pro or PowerFlex. Most anything is better than stock though.

Thanks - I saw the rx7.com ones, emailed them earlier in the week to check if they freight to NZ but haven't heard back from them yet.

Are you using them? How did you find they improved handling?

Thanks
Shaun

Improved Racing makes a nice set. Hard to go wrong with Powerflex Bushings. Atomic Rex made super nice aftermarket Pillowball Bushings that were less expensive than OEM buy Atomic Rex seems to have some customer service issues at the moment per a couple threads on the forums currently.

Thanks for the suggestions - the TC Sportline + Powerflex bushings look good. I'll be in touch.
