Best LCAs?

After installing LTs and O/R x-pipe I am getting a lot of wheel hop. Can anyone recommend some LCAs?

What about if you put the LCAs on and then do a moderate drop? Are relocation brackets still needed for about a 1 inch drop?

Yep. You don't want the LCA pointing down on the axle side. You want them either parallel or slightly lower on the axle side. Which one depends on a lot of things including what tire you're running.

Is there really a difference in LCAs besides the bushing and adjustability? I mean, they're all going to be better than stock. It comes down to what you want to spend. I thought about selling my Eibachs that I haven't even installed yet to go with Hotchkiss so it matches my UCA, but the thought of spending extra to have parts I'll never see match up made me keep what I already have in hand. Hoping to install them soon enough.

I've always heard the exact opposite. That higher on the axle side is worse

Best LCAs?

I'm confused now, is it supposed to be pointing down at the axle? I dropped my mustang 1.5 inches and the stock lower control arms are darn near parallel, wonder if I even need lca's and if it's better to get adjustable ones

You want them lower on the axle side. And it when thr suspension is under load not just sitting in the garage.

So if your lowered on stock LCA'S you are off alot without relocation brackets.

Also adjustable are not needed for Lca's

Haha I was just wondering if it would affect the length of the yoke, as to my concern with adjustable vs. non adjustable, because it had specific parameters it said it needed to stay in when I installed the driveshaft

Lol its all good bud, only adjustable things you need is the panhard bar. And UCA to properly set the pinion angle.
Adjustable Lca's will cause more problems than anything.

He was joking with me, you can run aftermarket lca's with a one piece driveshaft.
