Default Question about installing BMR lower control ar relocation brackets

I am installing a set of BMR rear lower control arm relocation brackets. Do I need to weld the outside facing the tire? The instructions only mention welding the inside. The outside is a little difficult to get to with a grinder because of the brakes. What do you guys think?

Mine are bolted only. I think the welds you did will be fine. GA

Mine are not welded. But then I don't drag race. I expect your weld will hold up to quite a bit of torque and you will be fine unless you drag race and have mods that significantly increase the power on the control arm. If that were the case, you probably would not have lowered the rear end unless you were a serious road racer.

Even though it was a PITA I welded my BMR brackets both sides. Curious to hear if others think the effort was worth it or not.

I finished up on the relocation brackets last night. I went ahead and welded them on both sides to be safe. They turned out really nice. I pulled the driveshaft out tonight and adjusted my pinion angle. I finally got everything back together and took it out for a spin. I can really feel difference with the brackets. Traction is definitely better. Now I realize that I should have done this before now.

Good Job KDT! Now tell you got an extra set of sticky tires, preferably MT`S. Then... I will tell you, that you are getting traction.

Good call on the welding. BMRs absolutely must be welded in securely.
