    Thanks again for offering these.
    I am holding out until I see if my new wheels and tires clear the existing trailing arms. Give it another week or so.

    +1 on the thanks for offering

    When you get the new wheels on be sure to take some sharp high speed corners to flex the stock trailing arms. Mine didn't rub until I took hard right turns, then they scraped like crazy.

    I swear this is true. Mine did not rub at first, then seemed to develop a pronounced, persistent rubbing only after several days of driving.

    Is it possible that you began cornering harder than you had been before due to the improved traction provided by the bigger wheels?

    Nope. I'm only very rarely close to the limit of cornering. The only plausible explanation I can come up with is that my ears just weren't tuned into hearing that particular sound ... as hard as it is to believe since after I started hearing that scrapping, that's the ONLY thing I could hear.

    Re: Noodle trailing arms ordering thread. Y'all with rubbin' wheelz git in here!

    I have a 250 yard long, 135 degree offramp on my commute to work. On the stock wheels, BFG G-force KDW 2's, and stock height, the greatest minimum speed I could maintain was 46 mph. With the car lowered by about 1.5", that minimum speed rose to 52 mph before I felt like the car was going to fly off the road. Now, with Eibach sway bars, I'm up to 56 mph (typical drivers bottom out at 32-35 mph). The tires are squealing constantly now, and if I hit this little uneven patch, the car jumps a foot to the right. 0.96 on the G-meter (not my best--there's a 1.00-1.02 right-hand turn on my way home). I can't wait for my Forgestar F14s to arrive. If I didn't have the Killernoodle arms, I'd immediately tear those wheels to shreds.

    My commute home has a wonderful on ramp on it. .95 G yesterday, but the record is 1.11 G this is on stock suspension w/ bald Conti Extreme Contact tyres. Mounting the Toyo T1S is waiting for wheels to arrive can't wait to see what I can get on those tyres.

    There is a sweet left sweeper on my way to my parent's house that I used to be able to take at about 70 (35 suggested ) that would ping my G-Meter to 1.19. The Hankook Ventus V12s weren't even complaining about it either, which was weird. Needless to say, this caused crazy wheel rubbing even with the wheels toed out slightly, which prompted me to develop the arms. I can't wait to get my forgestars!

    Killer, what size wheels were you achieving 1.19 lateral G with?

    This was with the Linea Corse wheels. 19x8.5 and 19x10. I'm not sure how accurate the G meter is, but I was a little surprised at the reading too.

    Did you send these with signature required? UPS keeps putting notes on my door saying I missed signing a package at work, I think this might be that box since I haven't received the arms yet. It looks like I'm going to have to pick it up at the processing facility.

    For future reference, I have a day job and I'm never home to sign for anything when they roll by.

    Haha I hate ordering stuff online because of that. Always seem to never be home when packages arrive.

    Yes, I received two messages about that. Good to know for everyone else trying to send in their cores. I was just being somewhat careful, since good cores seem to be hard to come by.
