UCA & Bracket Mount

Just installed bracket mount and adjustable UCA (Steeda) on a 2014 GT Premium track pack. Curious to know what pinion angle should I have when I have stock suspension. Also, how do you go about getting the pinion angle.

If you talk with Sam strano on pinion angle you would install it and mimic the same angle the stock unit came out. Drive the car if you have zero vibration you're good. Problem with a set number is you are going to get several different answers. Steeda will tell you 1.5-2 degrees negative. If you have to measure put an inclinometer on the rear driveshaft record the number. Put the inclinometer on the pinion dampner just behind the yoke take that number subtract from driveline angle should be around the 1.5-2. Negative. There is quite a bit of room for error on how people measure so Sam's way works well. If you had no issues before install that angle was okay. If you drive now with no issue it is okay.

Mark my words you will get a different response on this and that is why after all my research I trust Sam he has never steered me wrong yet.

Also I think auto cars should be different than manual. Don't hold
Me to it though.

Thanks...that's exactly what I did, I just adjusted it to the same length as the stock UCA. So far I have zero vibration, however I hear some clunking going on when hitting bumps on the road. It's not load but I can notice it, therefore I thought maybe I had the wrong angle.

Clunking is due to harder materials. Its the trade off.... soft materials are quiet but flex more and give "softer" performance.

Basically, almost everything people do to the cars... suspension wise are about making things stiffer... shorter/stiffer springs, stiffer struts/shocks, stiffer LCAs & UCA, stiffer sway bars, stiffer engine mounts, etc, etc..

Too stiff can be worse in SOME situations (like sway bars) as it will actually cause you to lose grip, but the thing I like about stiffer parts... they're a lot more predictable when pushed hard.
