    Help.... Relocation brackets.....

    I bought the lower control arms and was told it would hook better with the relocation brackets. I bought them and am wondering what holes to use? My car is not lowered, so do I use the upper holes, or the lower holes on the relocation brackets? Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I cant figure out do the washers go on the inside of the brackets or the outside? You know where the bolt goes through. Is it inside or outside the bracket?

    You should have 2 to 3 washer per side. The washers go on the inside of the bracket. The outer nut should be a locking nut. I have my control arms set in lower holes at this time, seems to hook up ok at that position. My car is lower with eibach pro kit.

    Acutally I raised mine just today, I had 3 washer on each side?? I think it's only for spacing. I went back with 2 washer, one on each inside and it tighten up fine. I raised mine up one hole to see if it would help with some minor wheel hopping on launch. Didin't get to test yet.

    I followed the directions from install university and it stated the metal piece that holds the cable, to cut it off at the bend. I used a saw saw and it worked perfectly. I cut it at the 90 degree bend. Then just put on the control bracket.

    man it was a bitch to cut the ebrake bracket on the pass side. I finally got it done though. Gonna go to the track and see how much it helped. Plus my dumb ass forgot to release the emergency brake and was fighting to remove the disc of the pass side. That was a Carlos Mencia DE DE DE moment.

    it goes inside your coil spring and keeps the rear from squatting on a hard launch.

    yeah, the bag goes inside the coil, and there is an air line that attaches to it so you can keep them inflated

    heres the link for the kit:

    usually people run 2, but 1 works just fine

    It may sound weird but I cut it at the bend. With my saw zaw, then just put the relocation bracket over it and bolted it in. It worked perfect. Followed the directions on install university.com
