Vorshlag is the only camber plate to consider. Never use urethane suspension bushings, seen too many go bad or allow too much movement. Dan is the only diff builder I use, but ask whether he has any Salisbury units instead of Quaife. And I am a big fan of Procede or Cobb as far as tuning goes, but that topic is worse than debating religion here.

KMAC is garbage. Poor adjustability and poor durability of the urethane in the plate itself. I know Will through Grand Am racing, great guy, it's no wonder he has a very successful business. But after using many different brands of camber plates and servicing countless street/track/club/pro cars, I can definitely say that the best camber plate I've ever installed, used on my own cars, and adjusted is the Vorshlag. And I guarantee that Turner does not use any urethane on any of their Grand Am Rolex or Continental cars.

Most people here would go with the M3 rear subframe bushings. I've installed several sets on various 335s, much more durable than urethane. I've taken off many sets of urethane bushings from many different suspension, engine, and trans mounts due to failure or poor quality.

please don't go with the AA tune...there are much better options out there. i know that Race Werks is an authorized dealer of AA and that's why they push it....but i would seriously consider something else. i have a Procede and currently run the Cobb flash...and both are great tunes.

The AA Tune is somewhat dated as far as I know. He was suggesting they aren't really making any more forward progress on the tune, so you may not be getting the best tune for the money. Everyone on this forum has their opinion of which tune is the best. If you contact Jeff@TopGearSolutions he will be able to find the one that best suits your needs in an unbiased, professional manner.

Just flat out don't buy it even if they downplay it. It's your money your car your choice. Go with proceed you'll be much more satisfied. And to later change to procede Is simple but your going to have a hard time sell AA tune

The comments about the AA tune above are all correct and not biased.

The fact that they're telling you the Procede is disappointing makes me question their (Racewerks) knowledge and or business ethics. The Procede is a very good tune, plain and simple.

JB4 and COBB are also very good. All three have more technology put into them compared to the AA tune. Better support as well.

They kinda put it to me like they know they other systems, but they said theyy had the most success and easiest time with aa. I want procede now:/ how long does it ideally take to ship the processor and do they automatically send you the newest procede? Ima call em today.. i did waste some.money essentially on the AA, but i think ima get used to the new.power and when it gets a little.boring ill switch tunes.. win sime lose some...

If they literally said "and the easiest time", then they haven't even tried the Cobb AP. I have the Cobb AP, so I might be a little biased, but even users of other tunes will tell you it's 100% the easiest to install.

Get with Harold@HP Autowerks for anything suspension/differential/brake related.....he will take good care of you. Obviously I'll recommend my mods, I couldn't be happier with my selections.
