    congrads. i am going with UMI for my suspension work. the LCA and SFCs will really wake your suspension up.

    Just put my UMI LCAs also this week, made a big difference in how the car handles and performs from a dead stop.

    ya, I just drove around town with the new LCA's in, what a difference! I can def. put my foot into it more without any wheelhop. going to install the panhard bar tomorrow since me and my brother were running out of daylight. the SLP SFC's and UMI LCA's really made a huge difference in how the car drives though!

    Those are a bit different then mine. I decided for the single adjustable with a single rod end. Makes a bit more road noise now then it used to, but a great mod. Hope the panhard makes a big difference as well.

    No I just wanted flexability if I ever need it.

    Not to mention the adjustables don't bind the axles ability to articulate. They basically let the axle move more independently of the body when you need a wheel to drop in a hole, go over a bump, and they don't add roll-stiffness to the rear like the non-adjustable type.

    I consider the single-adjustable to be my standard because they get rid of arm and bushing flex, but without the lack of flex. I only use the non-adjusts for more drag only oriented cars when building to a price.

    Thanks for voicing in some info Sam. BTW I ordered my LCAs and some brake pads from Sam, and he was very great in helping me choose the right parts for my car. I actually spent less money then I planned and got something that was better for my applications. Thanks again, looking forward to getting more suspension goodies from Strano.
