Pesky Axle Damper Weights

What are they good for besides getting in the way of my relocation brackets? Should I just remove them? The Whiteline relos I bought include bolts to put in their place.

Yes, you have to remove them to install relocation brackets. They're supposed to dampen harmonic vibrations, or some other load of bravo sierra. Useless dead weight. If you're installing LCAs you're going to get NVH anyways so **** it.

Haha sounds good to me. They're hideously brown anyway. And yea after a quick google, it seemed like all they do is reduce NVH. Thanks man.

After driving around a bit last night and this morning, I don't notice a big difference. And I think they WOULD fit the WL relos, it would just take some fenaggling. I just kept them off.
