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.
What does this kit do?
Our transmission cross member is supplied with a
built in torque arm mount removing the torque arm from the transmission
tail shaft and protecting it from failure.
Does this new relocation kit reduce ground clearance?
No, our cross member is designed to tuck tight against the vehicle chassis and will not effect vehicle ground clearance.
Which brand torque arms will this work with?
This set-up will work with virtually any torque arm
on the market as long as it bolts into the stock location. It will also
work excellent with the stock torque arm.
Does this add additional weight to my vehicle?
No, this cross member in most cases will save weight over the stock unit while being structurally stronger.
Does this kit require any drilling or welding?
This kit is 100% bolt in and requires no drilling,
no cutting and no welding. It bolts in place of the stock cross member
using the existing holes.
This product must be used with a solid one-piece
polyurethane bushing. It will not work with the factory bushing that
utilizes a two-piece design. If using a stock torque arm with this
relocation kit an aftermarket polyurethane bushing must be purchased.
