LCA relocation bracket? Are they really worth it?

So after dropping my car, and installing several other upgrades as far as full exhaust, long tube headers, Hi flow cat is X-pipe. I have a full suspension as far as lower control arms and upper control arms. I never noticed so much will spin until after installing the upgrades as far as the full intake goes. Now I can't keep it on the track it spins out almost every gear. Will buying relocation brackets for my lower control arms reslly do the trick and keep my car planted instead of spinning out? Even doing a WOT at 40mph. My car will break loose and pull to the right. I've got J&M lowers on. And it's dropped about 1.5 inches. The car is basically bolt on. With boss IM, suspension, 93 race tune, steeda CAI, mich super pilot sport rear tires, bbk long tubes, high flow bbk x pipe and corsa exhaust. Should I buy the relo's to solve my spinning problems. If so what brand. Do not want the weld on's

Yes you need them to put a lower angle on the lca's on the rear so they can bite harder and have better grip.

Yes you need them. Go with BMR, no welding required.

They do help eliminate wheel hop. I'm not sure if they'll reduce spinning. I've got the BMR upper & lowers and relocation brackets. I don't get any wheel hop or excessive spinning when I launch.

relocation brackets on a lowered car are required to correct the instant center that has been changed with the lowering of a car, this pertains to proper weight transfer when launching a car. while you can drive it just fine without it. for drag racing it is a must do modification.

here, read the last section here on relocation brackets:
