    Do the BMR LCA relocator brackets work with the factory LCA's? Not planning on keeping the factory ones but just in case... and as far as subframe connectors are bolt ons as reliable as the weld ons?

    They will just bolt in there same as an aftermarket would but as I was asking about the legnth. Apparently they should fit as Hi Po said his did.

    The OEM LCA's are stamped metal and not very sturdy. If you hook them up to relocation brackets they might give some, which would pretty much defeat your objection. I am not saying this will happen for sure, but I would suggest just saving up and doing them together IMO.

    SFC bolt-ins will be easier and cheaper as far as installation goes. If you decide to get the bolt-ins, you can always weld them later if you want. However, with weld-ins, you never have to worry about them. Ex. bolts can come loose, etc. Not to say this would happen, but hardcore enthusiasts would recommend weld-in.

    Thanks 35th.. gonna wait and do it all at the same time. I have another 4 or 5 months before i can get her back out on the road so I'll have lots of time to order parts.

    What you are changing with the drop brackets is you instant center google it, Understanding instant center will make you understand more about your suspension tuning. Hp and torque wont get you no where without suspension mods.

    I have been having wheel hop issues as well. So when I got home from work today my UMI lca's, panhard bar, and torque arm( all non-adj.) were waiting on the porch for me. If all this doesn't fix the wheel hop, should I try the relocation brackets next? I also have a Yank SS4000 coming, so if I can get it to hook, I should be able to knock off some 60 ft. times.
