    LCA Question

    So im under my car looking at some stuff and I noticed that it appears that I have a very odd LCA configuration...anybody ever seen this before or care to comment? It looks like junk to me...

    Based on what I saw it looks like the previous owner added relocation brackets "no idea what or where they came from" but the LCA's have a piggy back of some sort on them that connect to the bottom piece of the relocation bracket...Never seen anything like it before. The LCA's have grease fittings built into them and they have red bushings if that helps...but they look like crap and the lower adjustable metal pieces are very flimsy. Not to mention that one of the brackets is bent...

    The second picture is a relocation bracket for the LCA. It looks like you have two LCAs on per side lol. The upper one looks sort of like a stock one with a connection point to the second. You can ditch the upper one and just attach the lower one to the car or get new ones for that matter to the LCA relocation bracket.

    Looks like they triangulated the lower control arm. Not sure what the deal is...

    Google " LAKEWOOD TRACTION ACTION BARS"
    I ran them for a while, think they helped with traction but were rough riding, were a little pricey, think about 250.00-300
    good luck Johnny

    We have some nice relocation brackets and a ton of different lower control arms from mild (poly non-adjustable) to full race (CrMo rod end, double adjustable.

    Let me know if you'd like us to spec something to replace those.
