    If you are lowering the car an adjustable Panhard bar/rod will help keep your rear centered, and if you are experiencing wheel hop lower control arm relocation brackets will put your LCA's back at a proper angle. Adjustable LCA's are usually set at the stock length and unless you have a really trick setup or custom wheels then they will probably be left at the stock length.

    Remember for handling though the more weight on the rearend becomes unsprung weight on a road course.

    I would actually recommend rubber/poly LCA bushings instead of poly/poly. For handling the poly/poly will bind...

    Good luck with your setup!

    The front will mainly be for weight reduction and then again quick fine alignment adjustment. It is not needed, unless you just absolutely have to have the new upper control arms...
