Fishtailing...need help

When I am driving and downshift for example and give it full throttle I fishtail pretty much until I shift again. Anyway I can get rid of this?

You need to address your suspension and put a good tire on it.

Best way is to regulate that lead foot of yours. Let up on the gas a bit. Even with a done up suspension you still gotta watch it in 1st and partial second. And when down shifting if you over rev your rpm you will spin the tires. Try matching the rpm lower.

LCA's with relo brackets would be a help. If you are lowered and your LCA is high in the rear, it can actually lift the rear of your car during acceleration which would cause you to loose traction. Tires can be a band aid, but getting the geometry right makes a HUGE difference. If you drive daily, go with poly bushing on your LCA's. Nice balance of performance but not rock hard like spherical bushings.

Are they any recommend LCA's as far as brand. Is an LCA an easy DIY or is it recommended to get a shop to put them on?

AM has 2 bmr's...one with spherical bearings($215) and poly bushings($140)....is it worth the extra?

I'd also have to get the relocation brackets which run $150 for BMR.

Spherical bushing will rattle the fillings out of your teeth, but they will hook LCA's are super easy to install. We are installing the Bob's Billet LCA's this weekend. I will sell you our Adjustable LCA's for $100 shipped if you are interested. They are in perfect condition.

BMR, I can't wait to put mine on. Waiting for temps to rise. 1-2 hour job, in 40 not my idea of fun. Nonetheless, BMR for any application.

Definitely spherical.... And it's not too much stiffer of a ride. I didn't even feel a difference in actual stiffness when I did my LCAs, but it hooks a lot better.
