Lca's

Have j and m lca's and I keep having one of the bushings come apart. I'm going to call American muscle on Monday cuz thats who I got them from. If I have to end up getting new ones and I get adjustAble ones will I still need relocation brackets or should I just get regular ones and the brackets?

Re: Lca's

Thats a problem with all poly......best to go with BMR solid ends teflon,but you give up the comfort smooth quietness some.Cost you about 260.00 and adjustable.They use them on there track car.I have them and still have not put them on yet.Just to many projects and not enough time.

You will not need the relocation kit if get adjustable ones. Solids are better for a manual car cause of the drive train shock on launch. But it does generate more road noise. Also going with bmr ones with bushings will be better then current ones. Not all are created equal. There is a reason some are way cheaper.

Ok. So I'm lookin to get a set. Wheel hop is a pain in the @$$. I have a manual. Road noise doesn't bother me that much. Which ones should I buy? Car is used more for FR and occasional drag strippin.

Well I bought the 100 dollar ones off AM and they solved the wheel hop problem 100% they may be cheaper and not adjustable but they do solve the problem

Re: Lca's

If you lower the car or already lowered you will need the relocation brackets........... keep that in mind. I have the Eibach adjustables and they are good quality and sturdy... recommend and the relocation brackets I picked up from UMI.

Are the UMI products good? I have been researching and they have a solid on one end and poly on the other. Is that the best choice to go with?

On LCA's I cannot comment as I have Eibach LCA's. The relo brackets are good quality and a perfect fit.

Re: Lca's

If you plan to launch hard you will split the poly types

Re: Lca's

The ride is a bit better as for noise transfer,but if you are serious go with solid on both ends.Spherical ends are better than poly but not as good as the good type solid ends....BMR,UPR are IMO the best.JMO man.

WNTOGOFST has used poly and had a manual,but now take in consideration he was launching at 6000 with proper rubber.He can tell you.....

I really don't know what to feel for as far as wheel hop... I did the eibach springs along with struts/shocks and the BMR panhard... if I go with poly will it stiffen my ride? I want it as comfortable as possible I use more for street purpose

Well my car is a full dd all summer and all winter and ride quality is pretty high on my list but I will have 305 DRs on the rear come Thursday when I get them in from AM, but I don't want them to bust at the track. Is there anything extra I can do to help the polys from busting?

If you DD it in summer and winter hope you don't get lots rain or snow in winter. That is with DR's on the rear.

Well we don't get enough rain to worry but we get more than enough snow to make up for it but that's why I have the factory wheels on blizzaks right now, the car does better in snow than my ram does so I'm good there.
