Do you have to jack stand the car on both sides or do you install one side at a time? Did the jack go on the axle housing?

I'd raise both wheels on jackstands by the axle. But only do one side at a time. If you remove both stock LCAs, the axle might rotate and you'll have a tougher time with the install. Recommend removing both wheels to make the install easier. Especially since you have to detach the emergency brake cable at the caliper (it just slips right off).

Thanks for the info stlwagon … now which ones to get? My son who'll get this car part time next year will want the Steeda bling I bet.

I really like these guys' products.

Black is very nice looking.

How is the vibration and noise now with the poly bushings?

I've got the BMRs. They are a little noisier than the stock with the rubber bushings but not nearly as bad as the BMRs with the metal spherical bushings.

The Steedas and the Motoblue CNC machined aluminum do look nice and they are lighter. But at $300, don't think they're really that much better than the powdercoated chromoly steel ones.

Yes, what kind of noise? If you swap out the LCA's no matter what brand … you get more noise? My car sounds prety clunky in the rear enough w/o adding more. I wonder if something is loose back there sometimes. Hard to explain, but it's definately more noisy in the right rear area going over slightly bumpy road. Sorry for jumping off topic here.

LOL. I hate mods where you give something up for something better. Better handling, but more noise when you are supposed to be enjoying the handling. :hihi:

Better handling = bumpier ride. But hey - it's not a luxury car!

I wouldn't think they'd clunk more, telegraph more road noise maybe? The factory lowers are a joke, so it's a no brainer IMO.

It's not clunky but I've noticed since I've replaced everything that it seems to amplify road noise more. The poly bushings aren't nearly as cushy as the stocker rubber ones, so I'm not surprised.
