when using a BMR relco frame (tunnel ) mount for the TA if I lower the front of the TA at the pivot point where the bracket connects the TA to the frame mount, the bracket has 3 sets of holes WILL THIS MOVE the instant center to the front or to the rear?
now the reason for the question I have been fighting Bad wheel hop for 5-6 years and when I lower the front of the TA the hop seams to get worse. I have the adj LCA in the reloco bottom holes.
car is lowered 1 3/4 to 2" around do not remenber the brand of shocks, with 9"/ 4.11/detroit locker/adj LCA/ adj PHB/LCA reloco brackets/adj TA/adj QA1 shocks/rear air bags/

had same wheel hop with the 10 bolt also, does not change with 275-17 nitto DR/375-17 AND 295-17mt DR/several diff street tire

You want the two control arms to point towards the engine crankshaft. That's your instant center... If you have the LCA relo brackets on the rear, use the bottom holes, to angle the front of the control arms up towards the crank. If you can't get this, you might have to fab a bracket to get it even lower on the rear brackets.
