Aluminum DS on lowered car

Can someone tell me what I need to be aware of when installing a DS on my lowered car? I thought someone had mentioned that you need a certain kind of DS... Would that one that Bama sells work?

It should fit just fine. It sits just like your stock one.

No, nothing special is needed as far as the DS is concerned. It is recommended that you change uca to correct pinion angle however

Do I just need a new UCA mount for that? I'm doing lower control arms next month with the DS so I will do it then.

I would get a new mount with uca. I got the UPR uca with tq mount and it took a lot of slop out of the drivetrain. Get an adjustable uca or a non adjustable made for a lowered car.

I see GrabberBlue has already pointed you in the right direction. The Driveshaft it self is fine, lowered or not. But it is recommended to change the UCAs to adjust for the pinion angle! Going with the UCA and Mount's is always a good option, that will get rid of majority of the slop in your drivetrain, as well as fix the pinion angle.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance.

Like everyone else has said you could get the adjustable upper control arm to fix your pinion angle since your car is lowered. CV joint on driveshafts help with lowered cars I think thats what you were trying to get at. Dynotech and Driveshaftshop have cv joints on their driveshafts.

I just snagged the last aluminum DS from CFM. There local and gave me a bit of a deal since I paid cash and picked it up. I wish AM had rear safety loops in stock. Now I have to decide if I want long tubes or just deletes and a new x pipe from BBK. I have not herd much about the new BBK x with cat delete so I'm very curious.
