Why relocation brackets? My lca's will be here tomorrow. I'll be installing eibach pro springs, stallion adjustable panhard bar and bbr lca's this weekend. But I haven't considered relocation brackets. What is their function?

Re: Upper control arm

After I did my LCA's, I still had a little tire shake, so replaced upper control arm and haven't had any shake since. It's not too bad of a job took about an hour, but worth it. After pulling out the factory unit its easy to see that it dosen't allow movement like the replacement UCA.

I'll install the roush wheel hop reduction kit next. But still don't know why relocation brackets for lca's would be desired.

The relocation brackets change the geometry and allow the rear to hook better on hard acceleration. They are factory components on the Boss.

Create more downforce on the rear end planting your power to the ground.. All I have is ksprings and LCAs.. That took care of my hop

Thought maybe the lca's would cure the hop. Very interesting that the boss has the relocation brackets. Something I would not take advantage of. I don't race, just spirited driving on Michigan back country roads.
