Take a gander at this. This is just a description of a fixed UCA. Says the same thing on the adjustable.

Not exactly technical, but it sure sounds coincidental.

They make it sound like the oem bracket just doesn't mesh well with their product from a fitment standpoint. Hope that's what it is for you so it doesn't break the bank. I myself just made a post asking about the fixed unit I have, and if anyone has had issues.

BMR is saying that because the stock brackets hole is larger then bolt. There for you will get that clunk the stock is soft rubber no clunk.

Just a comparison (before we coat the part) of the slop difference between OEM and BMR Mount.

While on the topic of suspension setup,

So far I have Koni oranges(05-10) and GT500 mounts. I have also ordered the 8 replacement nuts for the strut upper bolts from CJ pony parts.

I will be going with BMR or steeda sport springs along with an adj panhard bar. Are there any other bolts/nuts to get that are considered a one time use that people would recommend getting new when doing the install? Just trying to make sure I have everything on hand when I start it.

Thanks,

I just re used the factory hardware, and the bolts that came with my relocation brackets. In saying that my car was brand new and I didn't think the bolts would have any wear or over due stress that warranted needing new hardware.

I've heard that some people (also with very new cars) while torquing to manufacture specs had the nuts fail, and this is why they are recommended to be replaced after first use. Anyone else weigh in on this? I am piecing my parts together now, my plan is to buy all new hardware but if I'm off base here I can save some money

I replaced all my suspension components without new hardware (unless the part came with it). Torqued everything to spec and haven't had any problems.
New hardware is cheap insurance if that's the way you wanna go but that's up to you.

I don't think you're off base, I just think it's personal preference. I didn't see a need. Not for my uses. I probably would replace the hardware if I was abusing the car day in and day out.

I really just don't want to have any noises. Seems like sometimes when people have issues its related to improper torquing or reusing factory nuts. Either of you guys experience any noises from something like this?

I reused ALL factory hardware with no issues other then my panhard rod not being tightened sufficiently. Once I found that issue and addressed it, I haven't had an issue since. Me personally have not heard of anyone having issues or noises with factory hardware. That being said I don't scour the forums for that kind of information.

Based on the stuff I read the noises don't come from re using bolts. And any suspension changes need to be re checked and re torqued after driving a bit

Yeah, well I plan on getting the bracket. But I am getting Steeda UCA, and their UCA does not require the bracket to avoid this.

I have about 3k on all my suspension components. Besides that one little hiccup with the panhard rod, I cannot complain. The car isn't abused enough to warrant strengthened hardware. I also did not go super crazy expensive with the parts I chose to install on my car. If I was building an all out racecar, well then it would be an entirely different story in all facets. My car is currently my daily. Maybe years down the road, I'll give it to my daughter and we can beat the piss out of it every weekend.

Go with BMR and be done with it!
High torque hardware I used (red) locktite and lighter items I used (blue).
Made sense for me and just a bit more insurance that they won't back out.
