Whiteline relo's

Has anyone heard about any issues with whiteline relocation brackets? I've read about the issues with the bmr piece making the axle off center...something about the passenger side having more built in play which causes the unit to shift and shift the axle to one side.

Has anyone heard of any issues like that with the whiteline relo's? I'm sure bmr has fixed this issue, but I don't want to take the chance because I'm sure some vendors still have the old units. Let me know what you guys think.

haven't had any problems with mine at all. but since other those or the O/R H which I doubt it is that, I have lower clearance and bottom out easier but no other issues

I haven't had nor heard any issues with WL relos whatsoever. I love them! The clearance thing is evident, but I'm more conscious of it now (after a couple obvious screeeeetches lol).

If you're contemplating on getting them, go for it! Personally I noticed a major change in the control of the back end on...ehem, exuberant launches. Say, my first ride after throwing them on: I punched it hard in a turn, kicked the back end out a little, but it was extremely controllable. Mind you, I also have WL's panhard bar and bracket. I'm fairly certain that makes a difference.

Besides, if there HAVE been issues with the brackets messing with the axle, then that gives you a reason to grab an adjustable panhard AND relos!

Good to know. I'm leaning towards whiteline relocation brackets and their adj lca's as well.

Hey man I am or haven't done a search but it's been a long time since I have been on the board much.

So, whats this about BMR relocation brackets? They have a recall? Any heads up will be appreciated. I can call Kelly at BMR tomorrow if they have a known problem.

The shifting you're referring to is really not brand specific IMO. Most of the brackets are basically the same design, and the only way to prevent the shifting would be to have them welded in. I have the BMR relo brackets and love them. And have had no problems what so ever.

I would suggest not getting adjustable lcas as well. Unless you're able to install them on a lift its going to be hard to adjust them correctly , since they need to be under load when installing. Plus you are opening yourself to more issues in the future. I originally was planning on going with an adjustable set as well, but some very knowledgeable people on here talked me out of it, and im glad they did.

^ agreed! If you are not big into racing or if your car is a DD or w/e driver I would stay away from Solid-Ends. I had a nice set of BMR TCA-020 that they even use on there track car but I made a deal later and never even put them on.I am Happy with all the susp. parts I currently run. I ordered the MGW today so looking forward to that. I am currently trying to decide which Adjustable UCA is the best bang for the buck. I have always been partial to BMR so I may go that way but I know with Bracket too, that it's gonna climb up there. I am lucky if a make 1 to 3 passes a year.

An adj lca will fix the relo issue if one side is off. That's the only reason I would get adj lca's

I guess one side has more play in the holes and it can shift and cause the axle to be not straight. If it were welded it would be fine. I think bmr redesigned the one side with play, but I wouldn't trust bolting them in with bmr. From what I have seen and heard, the whiteline relo's don't have this problem. An adjustable lca would easily fix this issue if it were to arise.

I run BMR and love their products also and I have zero issues with the relo brackets, theyve been on for 8 months, and it helps that I live 20 minutes from their shop so I get a cash discount when I drive over and buy stuff..

My original thinking as well. But again do you have a lift to install them? An adjustable lca needs to be measured and installed while under load on a completely level surface. If you're that worried about the brackets moving you're better off getting a fixed set on lcas and having the brackets welded in. Then theres absolutely 0 room for play.

Yeah. That's true. I'm not comfortable with using lca's to fix rear axle positioning unless its a very small amount like 1/8 on an inch. So I think I'll just bolt them in and have them welded if I run into issues.

Smart move. Especially for a daily driver. Thats what my plan is as well. Ive had no problems so far.
