LCA relocation bracket for SR?

Kind of an odd question guys/gals. I purchased the non-adj SR performance LCA's. And while they work great, I'm understanding relocation brackets will be a big help with traction once I go lower because the angle of the LCA goes up, thus not pushing the axle down as much for traction. Does anybody know what relocation bracket may fit these? BMR's non adj LCA is super similar, but I wanna be sure obviously.

Thanks in advance,
Eric

Are you sure it'll work in conjunction with the SR LCA's?

See these are the kind of things I need to research before I buy lol. I'm glad I joined here. The SR LCA's got nothing but great reviews so I thought I was good as gold. They don't make a relo kit

Contact BMR and ask them if their relocation brackets will work with those control arms. And ask for Kelly.

Contacting AM was a waste. Just wait for BMR to get back to you.

Lol, they've been pretty decent to me but I have heard other ppl stiffed or given wrong advice. I'm more upset with myself for not going a little further with the research on control arms.

They buy and sell parts. Nothing more. For some good suspension tech Kelly @ BMR is who you want to talk to.

Yeah. I read the reviews on their SR performance products and they got great reviews so I pulled the trigger. Regretting it a little bit now. I'll probably be finishing my suspension off with BMR products.

Yeah it's called SR performance. It's a kind of bang for your buck brand. But I read the reviews on them and ppl were quite please with them. All I have right now is LCA's, a strut tower brace, and a double adjustable panhard bar. The LCA's are poly and can be greased through the brass fittings and they look damn near identical to BMR's.

Lol yeah. I was looking at the bigger brands but the construction looked the same, and the bushings are identical, which is what matter most obviously. Does anybody know how the white line relocation kit is? I wonder if that would fit. Looks sturdy

What did you think of them? Why the sell? And do you know if they'd fit my specific LCA's. I don't see why they wouldn't

I didn't notice a big difference because I'm not lowered. And that's why I'm selling them because I'm not lowered yet. Be a while before I am. To my understanding they will work with any control arm. I don't see why they wouldn't.

Did you have upgraded LCA's? My LCA's made a ginormous difference in relation to eliminating wheel hop almost all together. I went with SR basically because they had poly bushings just like BMR, steeda, etc. I thought why pay the extra money? It's steel with poly bushings in most cases. Not defending SR but I didn't see the point in spending hundreds more. If they work in conjunction, I'll most likely want them. Jut tryin to do a little research on the interchangeability of the parts.

Nah. I have stock LCA. They are. Designed to correct suspension geometry of a lowered car. If you're not lowered then u don't need them. Getting rid of the wheel hop will come mostly from upper control arm upgrade. I would go with a higher end name brand for that one tho.

I'm going to go with BMR for sure on that one. I was aware it corrects the geometry, but I was also under the impression that it helped traction off the line because it realigns things to put more pressure on the rear end. My impression could be totally off lol.

It does that.. If you're lowered. BMR sells a set that have a few holes in them. The top hole is for non lowered cars. It only drops them about 1 inch down. These Whiteline relocation brackets drop the arms about 2.5 inches down from the stock point on the axle.

I plan on lowering, but not right now. Would these be a bad option?

Not a bad option on Non lowered car, just not really needed. I bought them cause I thought I was going to lower the car in the next month or two. But now things have happened and I don't know when I will be able to lower the car so I took them off

Grabber, Kelly from BMR got back to me and said I shouldn't have any issues with the mix and match of brackets and LCA's. Now the question is, BMR, or whiteline? I know both brands are pretty top notch when it comes to suspension

I'm thinking white line as well knight. Let me ponder for a bit...funds took an unexpected dip over the weekend. You'll be the first to know.

I say BMR. I mean, after all, Kelly did help you out. Plus the BMR ones have three positions vs two on the Whitelines.

Yeah, still contemplating this whole thing. I hit the track on Saturday and was disappointed with my traction lol. Now I know some radials will solve a lot of that, but before I make that purchase, I wanna do UCA and relo, and I wanted a relo obviously for my SR's. I just wanna make sure it's a worthwhile investment. I always have the toughest time when deciding on parts lol

I think I may wait until I've got my springs/shocks/struts and UCA to upgrade the LCA brackets. I got under the car today and checked the LCA's and they're pretty parallel to flat ground. I know that'll change once I go lower. It's funny because I want the best of all worlds and I know that's not really possible. It's a daily, but I want it to handle twisties, and the dragstrip whenever I deem necessary lol. Knight5.0 I'll stay in contact with ya about the brackets.
