What Lca & uca do you reccomend?

Doing my suspension, was thinking about getting the steeda uca & lca. Any other ideas would be appreciated, I only wanna do this ine time so all your input would be great. Have not droped the car yet i plan on swapping the struts and shocks soon then springs and pan handle bar. Function over looks, and i want a great ride hate that this car feels like a boat if you hit a bump @ speed. Thanks guys

They're solid products. The only thing I'd recommend is getting their UCA bracket as well.

Steeda products are always good. Bmr is another great company - they are who I'd recommend.

Stock brackets are stamped steel.. Always good to upgrade the supporting parts too. And trust me, you don't want to have to redo it later. It's a pretty tough area to work in.

I installed the Steeda billet LCA's, subframe connectors, panhard bar and brace, and trunk shock brace. Huge difference, rear end is very planted and bumps no longer give you the "whoo hoo" where is the rear going to end up now feeling.

As to the question of the panhard bar brace, the stock one is a joke. Not much help to keep the axel centered. The Steeda bar is unbendable by comparison, if you haven't lowered the car and are on a budget, it's easy to install and an inexpensive first upgrade.

If you lower it, you need the brackets to get the LCA's to return parallel to the ground for traction.

If you only want to do it once I would get them, I was in the same mind set as you I only want to do it once I was unsure about the UCA mount but I grabbed it just so I wouldn't later say man I should of got the mount I ended up getting koni adjustable and camber plates so we wouldnt have to take it apart later. I love the my car feels whole new car altogether

To dial them in further for dragging I suppose...but I went with a fixed LCA as my car is 90/10 daily/track. If you're DD'ing this car, there's no need to get all crazy with adj LCA's. UCA? Maybe. If you plan on a 1 piece drive shaft.

I've been told more times than not to stay away from adj. LCA's, couldn't tell you the correct reasoning though. LCA relo brackets - make a HUGE difference if you're lowered.

Why upgrade the bracket too? I've still got the stock bracket and now I've got a clunk with the Steeda UCA. Not a big deal, but its one of those things "I wish I would of got."

Having the brackets keep your LCA's parallel to the ground. And to get the best traction on a launch at the track that's the best possible scenario. The BMR's come with 3 holes for adjustability.

Those also look pretty sweet. I can't say bmr gets any style points, but I don't think you'll find any negative comments about their performance. Can't comment on the bobs billet lca's performance but I can't imagine it doesn't work.. Pretty basic part!

They look like the Shelby's, but I bet they didn't cost $340. Anything billet bests the stock stamped arms and wimp bushings.
