Default quick LCA question

im looking at some LCAS, 99% street drivin with a few passes at the 1/4 mile. i was lookin at the steeda non adjustables from brenspeed for 199$. Will those do the trick or should i go adjustable? And if i do go with the 199$ lcas do i need anything else?

you only need adjustable LCAif your lowered to adjust pinion angle, but that can be taken care of later with adj UCA if your not lowered but want to in the future.

Hi sweetlou69,

For a street car you don't need adjustable LCA's or an adjustable UCA. If you are going to lower the car 1" and want to keep a decent ride and improve your wheel hop and launch grip a good setup is a pair of FRPP GT500 LCA's and a Steeda tubular UCA. The GT500 LCA's are cheap and effective and will cause you no pain to install ot maintain and are easy to replace down the road. The Steeda tubular UCA is slightly shorter and designed to work oncars lowered 1" like the springs they sell but will also work fine on a car at stock ride height. The later tubular LCA's from Steeda are usnig a 3-piece poly bushing which improves artifical spring rate issues due to the inherent bind of all constrainedpoly bushings. This setup will run you about $30 more than your $200 LCA's and give you a more effectively located rear axle.

HTH!
