    should I spend more for adjustable?

    my parents are gonna buy me some UMI LCA's and panhard bar for Christmas, and I was wondering if I should get the adjustable versions. my car isn't going to get lowered any time soon, and I don't want to have my parents spend more than they have to.

    I would recommend getting the panhard adjustable anyways.

    I think I'll get the adjustable panhard bar but get the non-adjustable lower control arms. think that would be alright?

    Im wondering the same, I plan on never lowering my car. Would it be appropriate to get non adjustable LCA's?

    I'd vote adjustable, as long as you get good rod-ends.

    I'd get the adjustable LCAs & panhard. I have a stock, non-lowered car and the rear is nowhere near where it's supposed to be. You can save some money by just getting single adjustables, which should do just fine. The poly mount on the chassis side is also better for reducing the noise of adjustables.

    not all are noisy


    i would get adjustable for both....rod ended.

    but it also depends on what you do with your car, more drag or more twistys. drag single adjustable LCAs are fine, twisties (if you're this set on getting LCAs) you would want dual rod ended to elimiate the binding caused by the rubber

    I already ordered some non-adjustable LCA's and a single adjustable panhard bar. if I do lower my car I'll just sell the LCA's and buy some new ones.

    That's what I'm going to have to do. I have non-adjustable poly's and want adjustable rod ended. You should call and see if they shipped yet. If not have them change your order.

    If it was part of that UMI Thanksgiving sale, I don't think any of that stuff has shipped yet. At least, I didn't get my shipping notice.

    that is the set-up i have, plus the car is already lowered slightly with the eibach prokit. the car does well with the non-adjustable LCAs and adjustable pan hard bar.

    Mine does great with them too, but I think it could do better with the adjustable rod ended setup.
