    LCA's and relocation brackets??

    Just curious if LCA relocation brackets are really necessary on lowered cars. I lowered my car about a year ago and never got around to buying aftermarket LCA's or the brackets. I have a terrible squeak that coming from the driverside LCA so I'm thinking about replacing them. Should i go ahead and do the brackets as well? Or is it a waste of money? Also which brand should I go with??

    For no more then $100 or less LCA relocation brackets on a lowered car are almost a must. I also recommend an adjustable Panhard rod and if you get the upper spamhard support rod, get the jegster panhard driverside relocation bracket. THat way everything is put back into its proper geometery. PLus as bolt-ons they are easy as well. Weldins are easy too if you choose that route. I did a how to on it. Check out the suspention section on it.

    do it , i noticed when i swapped the stuff from my 85 to my 99 formula , much better traction . Also the relocation brackets are bmr and they are bolt in but you have to use a sawzall , check their website to see , if you have a a sawzall it will take no time and makes it so easy .

    UMI here and polys arnt that loud. ITs the Rod-ends that create cabin noise. If you get UMI's poly/roto LCA's its a best of both worlds kinda deal where you get some precision for rodend but the comfort of polys as well. Less binding going on. I got that on my front lower a-arms. I got Founders performance LCA relocation brackets (ebay) I didnt cut anything. Just had to bend alittle.
