    question about phb relocation

    I'm in the process of slowly upgrading my suspension. I have new bilstien shocks adjustable lcas and 3 point sfcs on the way. I had a question about a phb though. I do not plan on lowering my car and a cat back will easily support my horsepower goal, so is a phb relocation bracket needed or do they provide some other benefit other than clearance? Same question for lca relocation brackets.

    Clearance for larger exhaust tubing is the only benefit they provide. They lower the body mount side of the PHB without also lowering the axle side mount which is detrimental to handling. Whether you'd notice depends on your skill and style of driving.

    I only vist the track maybe once or twice a month. Its my daily driver with hopes to get about 430 whp in the future. I cant lower due to the roads and my driveway and like I said a catback will easily handle my goal hp. Thankyou for the help.
