My personal preference is the srs-n body. I use that about 90% of the time , the other body I use is the blitz rs6. depends on traction level and tire choice

For high traction I prefer the P37 and for med to low traction I like the SRS-N
The P56 has too much steering for my driving style.

Pass you soon...

I also didnt like the p56 on my last car. It was hard to find a setup where it would stay on all four. Someone did recommend it for for the 747, but i think it comes down to driving style.

As of now i have a p56, cruze, and srs-n to try.

With the stock ball-joints and rod I can only use the inner holes of the camber link bracket, but not the outer holes.

Which ball-Joints and rod do I have to use if I want to use both holes?

Does anyone find their side belt is excessively tight? My drivetrain runs nice and smooth with the side belt removed, as soon as I put it on it is nowhere near as smooth..

Even with the tensioner in the loosest position this seems to occur. I have tried other belts, and it's all the same. There is almost no slack at all.

I use the short ball-joints for the outer hole and medium for the inner hole. If you want to be able to use in both you should use one short and one medium. Same rod for all combinations.

Check that the sid belt does not run against the header. With some headers you may need to grind the underside of the flange.
