Just saw that today. Added to my wishlist. Goal is to have the entire suspension done by August.

Mine is finshed, I did have a brake caliper brack bolt sheer off under some hard braking so TITAN is down for a day, But the ride was leaps and bounds better, I found my self reaching the limits of my NT05 tires (very cold summer day @ 60f) which I can honestly say was the first time I have ever reached that point in the ownership of the car., I also no longer rub from lock to lock :-)

Decided what I'm going to order for this thing. Most likely in the next 3-4 weeks, possibly earlier.

-YYZ package from CED (to replace my old, tired Tein springs(no they're not eibachs like I said))
-Powell XXX rear sway bar
-ZZP control arms
-Subframe Connectors

AND - Some ZZP Stage 1 axles to hopefully eliminate this vibration under acceleration. Then, other than some slicks, I should be ready to do some road carving

The axels are napa brand re-labeled. Youre better off with the GM performance upgrade.
Also get rotated tranny mounts. Those will help better than the axels.

Not if the axles are the cause of the vibration, but rotated mounts are just good to have anyway. I just put my GM stage2 axles in, crazy diameter diff.

I put all of ZZP's solid mount in already, as well as the rotated front/rear tranny mount. I did all of that when I replaced the slave cylinder/TOB and master cylinder a few weeks ago.

I'm almost positive it's my axles that are making the vibration. I will order some next week and put them in.

Also spoke to John Powell via email and he suggested I use the alloy FE5 control arms with his bushings, so that is what I will be doing.

Good point. Axels weren't really on the top of my list to do. But if its a noticeable difference, maybe ill look into it.

stage2 is the upper one you can see the difference in shaft and hub size.
