Thanks for the help, that e-mail from BMR is a good read with lots of info.

So here's a curve ball: the UCA mount I received has three mounting positions and there is nothing in the instructions on which one to use. I know with the two-hole I should use the lower, but I didn't know the there was a three-hole mount. I'll call BMR and see what they say.

Please post a photo of what you are talking about. I am assuming you are saying you have 3 holes in the mount for attaching the UCA instead of 2 holes like mine. See My photos.

Yes - exactly; I'll post some photos soon.

I called BMR today and the tech said three-hole is a new design change. For my stock height-car he said I should use the center position.

I talked to them a few days ago about mine. Also the three hole design. He recommended the upper hole as I am lowered but also said that if I use the upper hole that I should be using LCA relocation brackets which I already installed.

maybe the new 3rd hole is for guys that raise their car for off road use?
