This is a reveiw that was quoted by Bioevovle on MSF.com. These are also his pictures.



"I HAVE TRACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me tell you:
It's Night and Day Difference. Drove it around, thru parking lots and speed bumps kinda hard to make noise or listen for scrap, but nothing lol which is great!. Drove in circles to see if the tires would rub under load/stress, nope didn't rub. Mind you, I'm still on stock suspension, stock wheels, tires and 40psi in the tires. (about the worst setup for wheel hop).
Virtually no wheel hop! Very little to none. No more violent car & steering wheel shakes during launch. The tires just spin lol, I think I burnt about 10,000 miles of rubber away on testing hahahaha, couldn't control myself. First, Second and Third just spinning.....YEEEEEHAAWWWW-MF.
The box was kinda heavy lol. Powdercoated Bars & Brackets, HD Heims, Nut & Bolts.
Welds are great like the tranny mount. For those of you doing it at home need the car higher off the ground to drill the a-arm. I have two sets of jack stands small and large, used large for it. Unless you have a right angle drill (which I didn't).

Had to remove my GT Spec 4-Point Brace (now for sale lol). Mounted the rear brackets and bar. Just snugged them down until everything is in place.

Torque everything down, make sure the bars are horizontal/level."

I think this would best be used in conjunction with a MM, to get the best results. It looks like a good/solid product.

Do you lose any of your front suspension travel?

Same question here. What does it look like under full compression?

On the front brackets, it looks like the outside bolts aren't long enough, just nuts floating in space.

It moves with the full travel of the suspension, no binding.

In that picture none of the nuts & bolts are torqued all the way. The bolt will stick out when torqued, do you see the plate off the a-arm little? There is not even a nut on the heim bolt yet lol.

I can't take picture under full compression, let me know on how to do that short of taking the coils and struts out lol.

Just looking for details, I wasn't sure if you took pictures of the incomplete install on both sides or if the hardware was too short.

Did you pre-load the bars at all when you installed them front to back?

Did you get an alignment afterwards? I'd be curious to see if it was out at all.

The pictures are of a complete install. Nothing was to short.

There's no need to preload these, and you will not need a alignment afterwards

yes, looks like the outside nut has a few unused threads.

Drilling required? What's with the shavings in the wheel?

OK.....

Maybe I'm just a bit dense, but can someone explain to me how exactly these things help your traction if they don't restrict the movement of (i.e., bind, in some way, shape or form) the stock suspension pieces? Does it simply reduce bushing flex?
