Absolutely agree

When I did the Dinan stage 3 - I did the front M3 arms at the same time and then the rear end was all wobbly. The LSD, rear bar, rear M3 arms when on after that and it was a massive step in fixing this - but it still wasn't right. The toe arms now have this under control.

All of this to have the massive power I have now to go in a straight line where I point it... like the M3 does.
Sounds like we both went through threw same type of process. Bit here, another bit change there. All to find out, oops I'm upside down in another area. Higher amounts of power will show the flaws very quickly about a person's setup. The changes must be done evenly. Placing BKKs are just as important as the toe links.

Here's an example of the OEM vs VM links. Plus, the OEM link looks like complete garage. The M3 links look more proper.
