LCA Relocation Brackets

Question.... If I lower the car, I have to get LCA relocation brackets? I bought Eibach adjustable LCA's.... but I cannot find a relocation brackets for LCA's anywhere. Am I overlooking the obvious? a little help would be appreciated.

Re: LCA Relocation Brackets

It is a good idea to get them to help correct the angle of the LCA's.

Re: LCA Relocation Brackets

Do you need reloc. brackets if you don't lower??I like these threads about LCA's/reloc. brac. as we all got to cross this bridge if we want performance.I started a similar thread.Seems Brad(wnt2gofst) is our only guy with knowledge on it.I am wondering when you do it do you got to have any alighnment work done or is it just bolt and go.Seems like a easy fix to gain grip and stop wheel hop.!!??

No, they just help you adjust the angle of the LCAs on lowered cars from what I understand.

Not yet. I will be installing LCAs as well as a new UCA and mount this winter. Hopefully an off-road x-pipe as well, then dyno tune in the spring. If the tax man is nice enough I may even see some new wheels and tires.

What improvements are from the UCA's expected.I am looking at tax return help too.I bought a 70,000.00 tool truck so should get plenty of help on write offs.Ever need any speciality tools holla.

Helps reduce wheel hop and improve stability of the axle.

Ok....Got a link to the ones you looking at? Are you lowering or staying stock height?

Staying stock height for now, but I will be lowering at some point. When I do, I will put the LCA relocation brackets on. I haven't decided which one I'm going with yet ... but here are the links to what I have been looking at.

BMR
UCA
UCA Mount
LCAs
LCA Relocation Brackets

BBR
UCA
UCA Mount
LCAs
LCA Relocation Brackets
note: I believe these are all repainted/rebadged BMR parts

UPR
UCA with mount
LCAs

I'm not sure which ones I'll be getting, and have no data on the performance of any of these products. It would be nice if people who had them installed would chime in with pros and cons. At this point it's pretty much speculation, all I've been able to find on the forums is people whining about how they aren't as quiet as the stock parts ...

Also, note that these are all non-adjustable since I'm mainly building a street car that will occasionally see the track. If you're building a hard-core drag car you will probably want to look for the adjustable versions of these parts.

Re: LCA Relocation Brackets

Also a adjustable UCA lets you adjust the angle of your tranny-driveshaft-axle when you lower the car a lot. Not always needed though. I know with mine i didnt need it but I did a UCA anyway just cause its stronger/lighter and adjustable in case i needed it.

You will not need an alignment when doing LCA's. Even if you are lowered.

Also the BBR stuff is basically what you said repainted BMR stuff. I really liked my BMR stuff on my G8. I have some BMR stuff on the car now most of it is now been switched to UPR.

I had Spohn which is known for Mcars also. But I split a bushing on my LCA's. Guess it didn't like my 6000rpm launches. LOL


UPR/BMR you can't go wrong.

Re: LCA Relocation Brackets

Why did you switch some of your BMR stuff to UPR? I'm leaning towards UPR anyways (the 10% discount helps) but I'm just curious. Would it be prudent to go ahead and spend the extra money for the adjustable third link/UCA? It's only $60. I'm going to go with the billet LCAs I think.

Re: LCA Relocation Brackets

I broke a bushing in the BMR LCA's I had. So when I bought new ones I went with spherical ends on both sides in stead of just one. If you plan on lowering or anything get adjustable LCA's. Same goes for the UCA.

I do plan on lowering. Do I still need adjustable LCAs if I run relocation brackets?
