    Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets

    Im thinking about getting these to help my sixty foot time but want to know if they are worth it. My 60' right now is usually around 2.0-2.1. I run on street tires and drive a m6 trans. I want to be in the high 1's and am hoping this cheap upgrade will do it for me. What do you think?

    I just sold a pair on here not too long ago as I ended up buying a rear with welded relocation brackets. Not a bad idea to upgrade your LCA's as well and install SFC's if you have not yet done so.

    you'll probably see more gains out of drag radials than you will LCA's on street tires. Drag radials alone will get your 60's in the 1.8x most likely.

    Trying to keep this one under 100 bucks. Ill do that if I redo the whole suspension. You know of anywhere I can buy some for the stock rear

    Mine were UMI Performance pieces -- you can order through KY Speed (site sponsor) and if you have any questions shoot "marksls1ta" a PM.

    Nope. The brackets in the picture are bolt in. I ended up replacing our rear with a Moser 12 bolt and ordered it with welded brackets pre-installed.

    I am thinking they were around $80.00. Don't quote me on that though.
