Was wondering if anyone had side by side comparison of the 2 options.

what I would really like to know is are the bushings that mount the carrier any different?

:brentil: ROXER, I seem to be at a disadvantage with my choice of picture looker. Mine doesn't give me the foam density or the durometer readings for the pumpkin mounts.

So, I guess I will have to accept your expert analysis.

I do have a Z0K X-member in a box ready to be tested. :thumbs:

YMMV

Sorry, don't have any more information. I saw the review on here somewhere, but basically it is the same crossmember with a steel u welded along the bottom to keep it from flexing.

And I plan to put one on too. Post your install experience if you would.

The GXP with the ZOK suspension won T2 a couple of times, so unless you are a road course weekend worrior the Probeam or the ZOK rear brace is fine.

Ok first wording in the post says the bushings may be of a harder durometer...


This is the only reason I would buy 1.

Doesn't Energy Suspension make urethane bushings for the differential?

Oh ok. Well, you could try to get some custom made I guess.

Working with Pwerks to possibly develop and test aluminum bushings...

on a brighter note I found a source for the ZOK crossbeam for $200!!!

Only 6 bolts, and something to support the pumpkin while you replace the crossmember and bolt it all up again.
