    UMI Suspension Questions

    Hey Guys,
    I just ordered non-adjustable LCA's and panhard rod for my 98 A4 Z28. I plan on replacing the torque arm in a couple of weeks as well, and was wondering if I should invest in a non-adjustable or adjustable. I don't plan on altering the ride height (ground effects + lowering = scuffed paint), but I want to make sure that it hooks up like it used to before all of the stock bushings turned to play-dough. Thanks!

    It is better to pay the extra for the adjustable.

    I was the same wanting to keep my cat at stock height but things change.

    I am considering ordering the Strano lowering springs this winter.

    Besides it is nice to be able to adjust the pinion angle for racing/street!

    I believe you need to have adj LCA and adj torque arm together.
    And even stock ride height cars need an Adj panhard bar to center the rearend correctly because the rearends are biased toward the driver side.

    Any Time You Can Adj. A Part It Makes It Better. You Can Lose 2 To 4% Of Your Power, From Drivetrain Angles To Great.the Strighter Your Drive Shaft At Lach The Beter, But You Have To Have 1 Degree Of Angle To Keep The U-joints Together
