Instant center?

Hey guys, I'm getting ready to lower my car. I'm tryin to get a definitive answer on where I should be placing my BMR UCA bracket, and my BMR LCA relocation brackets once lowered. Anybody have some insight on this? I've done a bit of research and everything leads to top hole of UCA bracket, and middle hole of LCA bracket for daily driving, which is what the intended purpose will be with the occasional drag strip action. Thanks in advance bros.

Eric,

If your asking if you should replace the UCA because ur lowering the car, yes. Do you have to? No. How low are you lowering the car?

I already have the UCA and bracket. What I'm asking is if I should lower the UCA to the lower hole BECAUSE it's lowered. It's getting lowered on konis's, with springs, and strut mounts.

I have no input on the UCA, but i believe you are correct on the LCA. It has been a while since i spoke with Kelly, so you may want to double check this on your own, but from what i understood, you basically wanted to lower the LCA "double" what you lowered the car.

For example, the first hole is 2" lower than stock, second is 3", last is 4" (i believe, again, may want to check on your own).

So if i lowered my car 1", i would use the first hole which is "double," or 2" down. If i lowered 2" id want the last hole or, or "souble," which is 4" down.

At the end of the day though, you either want them parallel, or at a slight downward angle towards the axle. The higher the angle towards the axle, the more stress you put on the tires, so the stickier tire you will need. Kelly can explain it MUCH better than i just did, so id recommend giving them a call.

I have the LCA's in the middle hole, that is what's recommended for my drop. The angle is ever so slightly pointing up towards the axle.

Yes, top hole for uca and top or middle hole for relocation brackets. The bottom holes on both of these are for hardcore use and 96% of people should not use them.

Lol 96% percent. So specific lol. I got a slight camber issue up front. Going to let the springs settle a bit and get an alignment.
