Project DBA R35 GT-R, Putting the Suspension All Together With SPL Parts and Whiteline


Now, Howard removes the rear suspension links so the SPL parts can be installed.

Here is the stock traction rod versus the SPL Parts one. The stock rod is thick wall and really heavy. The SPL part is adjustable for length and is thin wall large diameter chromoly tubing, which makes it lighter and stiffer.

As we said before, making the rod longer reduces toe in under roll, and making it shorter increases toe in under roll. We set ours to be the same length as stock.


The stock camber arm is solid and thin in diameter, making it surprisingly heavy. The SPL part is lighter, stronger and stiffer in addition to being adjustable in length and having a bearing instead of a soft rubber bushing.

The SPL toe arm is lighter, adjustable and stronger like the other SPL links when compared to the stock toe arm.

Surprisingly, the stock toe arm has a spherical bearing instead of a rubber bushing.
