Rear Upper Control Arm Video....You're going to want to see this

I wanted to x-post this over here from SVT to spread the importance of an adjustable UCA on our lowered cars.

Can't wait to get my Hotchkis installed. No poly, spherical bearings = NVH FTW!

What you're looking at is bushing compliance, the fact that the new link is adjustable is irrelevant. Important, but not related to what you are seeing here. The new link has poly bushing in the front which is what is reducing excessive movement. So this thread would better be described as the importance of proper bushing selection. The fact that the link is adjustable is s bonus, but not really a factor here.

I did LCAs w/ relo brackets and it stopped 90% wheel hop. You replace that upper and the NVH is terrible

I had gear whine from day one. Nothing changed NVH-wise as I changed out suspension components.

I have a bmr upper mount that has been laying in my spare room for about 3 months looks like I need to get this put on. I knew the stock was bad but I had no idea it's was that bad

Definitely agree w Fabman but the oem piece is flimsy (by my definition of what it is and how important the piece is!) vs any aftermarket uca. The steeda uca I have looks and feels like it belonged on the space shuttle (imo) compared to oem. NVH increase to me was so minute it could be in my head?
Great video comparison!!

I still gotta get this installed. I put my lcas on and immediately noticed gear whine. Doesn't bother me though, but I have been wondering, how does putting lcas on create increased gear whine?

Do you have 3.73's? It most certainly shouldn't increase gear whine, there's no real correlation between the 2. It could be in your head, or maybe you're just now noticing it. I've noticed the gear whine since I took the car off the lot. I noticed it on my 2V when the 3.73's went in.

Maybe it isn't gear whine, but another noise. Yes, I have 3.73's. All I know is that some type of noise increased after I put the lcas on.

The whine was probably already there. When you installed the LCAs, with their firmer bushes, the noise was more easily transmitted into the cabin. The OEM bushes are designed to better isolate the cabin from NVH as a priority.

Great videos!

I just ordered some suspension components for mine this weekend before I even saw this video

BMR Adjustable Upper
BMR Upper Mount
BMR Lowers
BMR Lower Relocation Brackets
BMR Adjustable Panhard
Eibach Springs (1", 1.5")

Should be nice to throw that all on when it comes in. The slop in the factory hardware is something to see, for sure. Glad to see the improvements in hooking up hard going from hopping gears to small chirps with each pull. Can't wait to get mine in DD

Bro, when you modify a stock car, it'll make noises sometimes. Ford made it to tailor to everyone. You're obviously not that by modifying it

He should try the Rousch one first. Would probably cure most, who don't track the car all the time.
