Lets see, they help eliminate wheel hop. They enhance your launch by increasing your anti-squat. They also improve ride quality when they are welded on, as yours are.

am I looking at it wrong? It doesn't even look like they are being used. Just that they don't come off haha. Looks like the LCA is in the factory slot, and not in any of the lowered positions.

So guessing the car isn't lowered anymore and might have been at one time?

By how much does welded vs. not welded matter?

LCA relocation brackets are designed for Mustangs with a lower ride height. The idea is to keep the same angle or slightly stronger angle of the LCA as stock. When the body is lowered, the LCA angle is changed in the wrong direction. Think about the body LCA connection is lowering closer to the ground, meanwhile the axle LCA connection is staying the same, when a car is lowered. These relocation brackets allow you to change/lower the LCA connection to the axle and regain the proper angle.

It's a good thing you have these, since you're planning on lowering your Mustang soon! Hope this makes sense and clears things up.

so its like a lift bar for the older cars, if you lower the lca mount point you change the articulation of the car when it transfers the weight front to rear.

Ouch!! Asking AM if another competitor's products are good!! (SVE I believe is sold exclusively by LateModelRestoration).

I would personally go with BMR.

Nothing but good things I've heard.

I have heard some bad things about SVE stuff.

No personal experience... Just the "truth" on the Internet! Lol.

Ooh i didnt know that they didnt sell SVE, well but still could give me an idea since they also sell bmr. I know bmr are one of the best but SVE is just 50$ and the product seem like good quality.

You can find bad reviews for everything, my sve lca seem to be constructed very nicely. Have yet to put them on too give an assessment on how they fare under abuse.

If you look on the inside of the bracket, you can clearly see where the paint has been rubbed off in a circular pattern... It's been used in other positions. Whether of not it has been lowered is hard telling, but it's been raced, or at the very least launched hard and the previous owner was using other positions on the bracket to get better traction

McQueen,

I see these guys already mentioned this, but we don't carry or use any SVE components since they're exclusive to LMR, so I can't vouch for their quality, unfortunately. However, we do have a very affordable LCA as well from J&M. It does cost more, but I can tell you the quality is top notch! We've used these exact J&M LCA's on our 10 second Nitrous injected '11 GT and cut a 1.4x 60' at the track too!



Hope this helps your decision!

Shane

Yeah op that's good stuff! Steeda recommends you weld them in. Post pics when you get it lowered and tell us about how the reloc brackets work for you!

Thanks guys! We were very happy with the results from just a few bolt-ons. That is of course if nitrous is considered a bolt-on haha.

Either way, we thoroughly tested these J&M LCA's to say the least...
