    What are the best LCA's to get?

    Just another brother trying to eliminate this damn wheel hop. I was looking into SLP LCA's and I heard Hotchkins were good. Has anyone a prefference? Any good or bad experiances?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    personally, i wouldnt do either one. im running spohn LCA's with poly ends, but im thinking of trying poly/rod end ones from UMI. They have made quite a name for themselves.

    Thanks for the feedback, I didnt realize how many companies made them. I orderd BMR's today.

    I just hope I dont have to buy shocks and a torque arm. But if the hop does not go away I will start with a pair of shocks, I hear Koni's are good. I have them in my 69 and I have no complaints

    I'd get something like this instead:

    doesn't cause bind as the ones with polyurethane.
    These are quieter than polyurethane... getting cheap rod-ends won't cut it and has given them a bad name.
    You asked for the best... that would mean that it doesn't hinder handling... something the polyurethane ones do.

    What brand are those? I went with BMR because of price but if those will work much better and they are not too pricy i will look into them. I have my eye on a pair of 892 super tacks as well, I know you canada boys can appreciate that (only have a budget for one hobby at a time these days)
