Whiteline UCA

Has anyone installed the whiteline UCA? I am going to be installing it this weekend and was wondering if anyone has adjusted it because the adjustment instructions are a bit confusing

I can't help, I'm afraid. I do recall someone else asking for help on this same item, and probably for the same reason.
They appear to use an eccentric bolt(similar to the way a camber bolt is used to change camber.)
These instructions to me leaves me wondering how do you adjust pinion and the eccentric on the UCA BEFORE it is install to the vehicle? At least that's the way they make it sound. ??

"8. Prepare Whiteline Arm and Mount for installation by adjusting pinion angle of eccentric crush tube to desired position. Then tightening the lock nut up against the mount."

But apparently the eccentric is used to make the adjustment(couldn't be a hell of a lot) and then you lock it in with the lock nut.

When I bought my car it came with it, I had a problem where one of the bolts fell out and it was loose had to order a bolt from Home Depot because no one had it in town, and then had to take it off and put in the new bolt. They also claim it's adjustable but it doesn't make any sense on how it's adjustable.... It doesn't lengthen or shorten, it just squeezes the bushing to make it stiffer I guess? But I see no benefit in that.

You can see the eccentric piece within the bushing. I would assume you can position that for what appears to be a small amount of adjustment, by turning the bolt.

Yeah the "adjustment" makes no sense.

Did you get the BMR Mounting Bracket with it. I believe that's typically recommended.
