UMI Performance

The torque arm relocation kit from UMI Performance is designed to remove the front mounting point of the torque arm off the transmission and protect the tail shaft from damage. General Motors tail shaft mounted design works great for a stock driven vehicle however it is not designed to take abuse and hard launches. This set-up replaces your transmission cross member with a new stronger set-up with a built in torque arm mount. Each relocation kit is designed to fit a specific transmission and will work with virtually any stock style aftermarket torque arm as well as the factory torque arm. This unit is built using rectangular mild steel tubing, 0.188” mild steel mounting plates and includes all appropriate hardware needed for the installation. The torque arm mount is machined from 0.250” thick mild steel and features a new clam shell for appropriately attaching the torque arm to the new cross member. Please use the FAQ’s below for additional information.

    Decently easy to install once you have everything set up….looks good, but if you have the SLP Y-pipe it will make noise. Not bad once everything is set-up

    Not a bad install if you have access to a lift (lucky me i do). I have SLP y-pipe, and had issue with clearance, but i just ground down the corner 1/4″ and touched up with some red paint (no biggie). I do notice a little bit more interior noise from the kit, but its really not that bad. I recommend taking the y-pipe off after checking for clearance issues, it will make the install easier.
