I've been following this guy on Youtube for a while. He's very knowledgeable about our cars and has the best 0-60 time I've ever seen. Recently he installed and tested a set of BMR trailing arms. They are only $100, and it looks like it helped a lot with wheel hop. Anybody else try these? I may order a set...

I put a set of these on when I redid my suspension this year. They were fast to ship, look very well made and I'm happy with them. Don't think they will cure all wheel hop for you by themselves though, only way to do that is get rid of the rubber cradle bushings, but they will help.

Are you planning on keeping the stock bushing that is pressed in the hub? The stock bushings are awfully soft. I bought a bushing kit from whiteline that replaces both bushings, just waiting for warmer weather to install. Thanks for the links BTW.

You are correct they are really soft. I replaced mine with the Whiteline ones also.

BMR is actually working on a more comprehensive solution for wheel hop in our Challengers. Not ready yet so I’m going with the trailing arms for now as well. Waiting for them to be in stock.

Thanks for posting those up.

That's a pretty good price for those too.

When I had my old C5 Vette, peeps complained about the "Vette Tax" on mods (price goes up because it's being installed on a Vette instead of an F-Body), but I'm finding Mopar stuff is even higher priced!

I'd actually consider this a good deal for what it does.

They now have adjustable upper rear bars. Priced very good to me. I like those trailing arms...........

Are the Whiteline bushings for the trailing arm, or the cradle? Got a link for them?

There's a Whiteline bushing for both. The one we were talking about is for the trailing arm where it attaches to the hub.

It's the set at the top of that picture.

You need a bushing press to get them out. I got a simple one off of Amazon for about $100. But he's right they can be a PITA so just be prepared
How easy is that bushing to replace? Bought the BMR trailing arms and the bushing on amazon for $17 also. Just wondering how to replace it.

BMR makes quality parts, they were big with the Mustang crowd when I owned one

+1 on BMR. I recently installed on-car adjustable upper rear control arms and trailing arms from BMR and they are very well made. Got mine powder coated..fast shipping...just a great company. I had some camber issues since my car is lowered but now it's taking care of.
