Is upper control arm mount need?

I just bought a hotchkis adjustable upper control arm and I'm curious on if I need a mount or not?

I would say BMR or steeda, be prepared to experience NVH. The Hotchkis UCA is loud! We had one on a customer's car, he had to remove the piece the noise was so bad.

My buddy has it with no issues.. If its a little noisy it will be fine I'm straight piped so I really won't hear it anyway. But anyway are your talking about that clunk noise?

Yeah, your typical NVH increase as well from a spherical bushing. The Metco I actually don't think will fit, I could talk to Rick @ Metco but I think he designed that to fit only with his UCA. I could very well be wrong, its been a few months since I messed with their UCA and mount.

The BMR one is a quality piece.

The mount you want is part #UCM002. I don't know if it will work with your Hotchkiss. Kelly @ BMR would know for sure.

On the topic of NVH... I just installed the Steeda UCA, LCA's, Ultra-Lite springs, and Pro-Action shocks all in the rear last weekend. I'm getting a clunk upon acceleration while cruising; I.E. Cruising at 45 MPH, let off the gas, speed drops down to 40 MPH, give a decent kick to the gas to quickly (not WOT or even halfway to WOT) get back up to 45 MPH and I hear a clunk in the rear. Obviously, the clunk happens slightly after I step on the gas due to lag from the motor to the rear end.

What could it be? Sorry to hijack this thread, hoping for a simple answer!

I am in the same situation and from different sites that I have read if you don't replace the mount you will get a clunking noise. I originally wasn't going to buy one but decided to just buy one and give myself piece of mind. I get all me suspension parts in this week I will post pic and let you know the results

Most likely your 2 piece drive shaft, has a lot of play in the center carrier bearing
