I know 1 time isn't alot, but for me its enough to keep me away from whiteline. I was seriously considering there UCA as well, as ive heard nothing but good things about their LCAs. After seeing this, ill be sticking with bmr.
IMO, Whiteline is handling the situation very well. Should have never happened though with thorough testing etc. But, things are going to happen, it's how companies handle themselves in these instances that says a lot about them. I have their LCAs, Panhard bar w/bracket and they're very well made.

I like their uca. This might steer me away from it, but the design if it is very unique.

Lmao DWC.

Yeah whiteline is definitely handling it the right way. And from what ive read, taking care of the guys car. But hopefully they do go back and take a second look at their design. I know its made from extremely strong materials, but the gauge of that steel is in fact very thin. Just imagine if that happened hitting a bump in the road at 65mph...thank god for the driver it happened on a launch.

I can confirm that they have a recall on it. I have contacted them and they will replace it with an updated design. They say new design being tested and expect to start shipping in about 10 days. I am back to my non-adjustable stock UCA. Since I lowered the car about an inch (BMR), I plan to adjust the pinion angle with the newly installed Whiteline LCAs.

Man, I'm sure glad I read this. I just purchased a solid group of Whiteline components: panhard, bracket, LCA relos, and a strut tower brace. I've got the Eibach adjustable LCAs now, but part of me wants to sell 'em and get Whiteline's...purely to compliment the rest of my suspension geometry components haha.

Anyway, I really wanted to beef up and stiffen the rear end before I lowered it, preferably with an Eibach pro kit. Last step would be some caster camber plates. I just want to get all my sucks in a row, ya know? Any thoughts?

I'm going with a similar setup. Have Whiteline's LCAs and Panhard bar w/bracket. I picked up a set of Steeda sport springs with Koni STRT dampers. A lot of guys run these springs and dampers and rave about them. Thought about the Eibach setup but went this route based on all the reviews and feedback I had seen. Also plan to pick up the redesigned Whiteline UCA, if they get it right this time which I'm sure they do. After that, I should be set.

Sounds good. I read recently about either changing out suspension component bolts and or using locktite on all of them during reinstallation. I might be doing that.

I talked with whiteline for a bit these past couple days. They're testing the new revised UCA right now. They hope to have it ready in the next couple of weeks. WL really stepped up on this one, placed zero blame. Their actions are just an example of how good a company they are.

Glad they are stepping up to the plate, and redesigning it, not just blaming it on one "defective" piece. It was a little nerve racking when my buddy sent that thread me, as he knows im in the market for a UCA right now.

Yeah im glad people finally started reading that thread. I posted it up a couple weeks ago, but it got moved to General discussion... Not to sure why. More people would have seen it here.

Whiteline's panhard bar is set at factory length, but this just doesn't look right to me...

The back right tire seems a bit more recessed then the left. Do I need to extend the panhard a little?

You need to shorten it.

Look at METCO, I ended up ordering a batch to put on my car and get one to the OP. There are a few racing teams that swear by METCO, I already have their LCA's on.
