    if upgraded axles are suggested, I would like to get everything done together.

    Thanks,
    its easier and cheaper to replace before you break something as opposed to after.. if your gonna be under there already, my vote is to do it

I also have PSS's so I have great tires, but after the lockdown kit was installed the car just accelerates in a nice straight line and the rear end feels way more planted. After my Suspension and LSD, this was the best handling Mod, even more than the M3 control arms. Especially if you are running a tuned car putting down more than 400WHP.
    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for the review. I'm seriously considering getting one of these to install when I put in my whole M3 rear axle and diff. Is there any increase in NVH with the lockdown kit?

    NONE AT ALL, well I couldn't feel any. You still have the subframe bushings and your suspension absorbing a lot of vibrations.

    Thanks for the reply. Are you on stock subframe bushings or the M3 ones?

    Some folks have noted a little gear whine when upgrading the subframe to body bushings with the N54/55 kits, However if you are candidate for the M3 style kit, the different design and style of mounting doesn't have any repercussions as far as NVH goes(although If any problems arise with the differential, you'll certainly hear it sooner than with the stock bushings)

    For drag racing with slicks I would upgrade my axles just as a precaution IMHO. Also an upgraded clutch
