Bmr lcas question

Finally had my lcas put on this week not to sure about them as they really pick up road noise like crazy faster go the more noise you hear. Is it normal for these? if so i'll be putting the stock ones back on for sure.

I have the BMR LCA on my sixer and didn't notice any real change in road noise. They are hard to install incorrectly without noticing. i.e. Steering wheel is off center because of incorrect thrust angle on rear.

Are they level, similar to how the OEM come? As I understand it, if they are sloped (as in when a car is lowered) it will result in ride harshness on rough roads..

Thanks for the input....Yes they are level like the oem ones i was just doing a google search on them and some other people stated that because of the poly bushings you hear more road noise verses the rubber ones on the oems ones also more driveshaft noise also weather it's true idk but they are a bit more noisy compared to the stock ones..I think i'll put the stock ones back on plus i still have stock mufflers on so you can really hear the road

I'd give it a week, you'll probably stop noticing and the more compliant axle is worth it. That being said I didn't notice a big change in noise with mine.

NVH is why I put GT500 LCA's on my sixer. Poly bushings transmit more noise than rubber and the GT500 arms stopped my wheel hop with no added noise.

Yes it seems that they are noisier than the stock ones almost sound like a cheap set of tires would sound as they pick up more road noise .

You switched to a stiffer bushing. More NVH is normal for any suspension mod when this is the case. Thing is, I don't even notice it anymore. Give it time.
