LCAs

I'm going to be removing the factory quad shocks soon to clear big wheels, and even though I possibly won't have wheel hop, I want new LCAs. My question: tubular or square tubing? Is their really an advantage with BBKs square LCAs? Thanks

if i recall from online research the tubular ones are lighter but the square design holds up to more force thanks to the edges

Well I believe aftermarket is aftermarket so I'll probably just cheap out and buy tubular ones. Installation is easy and anything is better than stock. I may upgrade to square tubing one day though. Just don't have that kinda money right now. I suppose subframe connectors are next on the list. Any specific company you would recommend?

as long as they are strong and made good you are fine, lift bars are another type of lower that are for track use only and give more traction, but not for corner carving.

It's mainly for the drag racing but I do partake in the occasional autocross. The ones I'm looking at are on LMR, the SVE brand. They seem durable.

I love my lift bars. I don't corner carver but I have had no adverse effects on normal driving.

What company makes these lift bars and are they expensive? I'm putting myself on a bit of a budget. That's why these SVE CAs interest me really

I went with the j&m weight jackers and love them. Have held up to my abuse well.

They are called umi lift bars. They are formally known as south side machine lift bars. But I ordered mine from summit racing. They are a great product and very affordable.
