    If you are lowering I would suggest adjustable. From what I understand, when you lower your car, your camber will be off. Having adjustable LCA's allows you to correct that on the rear suspension.

    I believe also with lowering or some aftermarket rears, when you reconnect the LCA to the bracket your wheel may not be completely centered in the wheel well which an adjustable would correct for that also.

    Someone else will chime in.

    Relocation brackets are recommended on lowered vehicles as well and help '60ft. Check UMI, says it right in the description.

    Agreed with the relocation brackets. They are pretty cheap and help quite a bit. Connect the LCA to the lowest hole in the bracket.
