    UMI LCAs

    Put them on a couple days ago now and what a differance over stock, The "jello" effect on the rear end from corners and bumps is gone. The back of teh car seems to be better planted and quieter as well.

    Install was super easy, of course. I did a around 200mile ish trip with em and not a complaint. no squeaks, rattles other strange noises with an improved ride quality. Those of you still using the stockers, I would suggest replacing them or at least the bushings in them.

    +1 on the umi LCA's. after i put mine in it felt much more solid in the rear end. and hooked much better at the track too. and absolutely 0 wheel hop.

    excellent product. GET THEM!

    I ordered mine through summit i think. Its just easy and i got a free hat out of it.

    I got all of this but the dual adj LCA's. Made a WORLD of difference on how the car performs on the street and track. +1000000 on the SFCs

    And no Wheel hop, just make sure that you always make sure the LCA's stay tight or you will get this hoppy feeling going down the track.

    I got the UMI DBL. ADJ. LCA'a and panhard package deal. Soo much better. I got the relocation brackets now since I was doing the BMR springs, KYB AGX's, and Spohn sway bar set anyway. With UMI mad sway bars I would have bought the and probably saved some money. I got all my stuff from Mike at WS6store since he gave me free shipping and matched some prices I found on Ebay. Got a good deal in my opinion. Wanted Strano's but didn't wanna wait for them to come in. Never use O Reilly's pass side strut mount or you'll be ready to burn the place down. There parts are crap. I ordered a new set for both sides from gm parts online so they will fit like factory and return the Oreilly's trash. Other than a bad strut mount the car rides smoother than stock and handles better than ever. Put's the factory suspension upgrade packages to shame.
