Lower control arm brackets

I've been on AMs site looking at Whitelines LCA brackets. They were recommended to me by a couple of guys but am wondering about pinion angle after installing these. Some of the feedback says it's a good mod if you've lowered your car and some say they work great with the stock length LCAs. It looks to me the only way the pinion angle wouldn't be affected would be if the hole for the control arm were located a little forward of the stock hole since it's farther from the rear axle. Has anyone here used these brackets with the stock length aftermarket tubular control arms on a stock ride height car.

it gets rid of the squat in corners. great mod. vorshlag told me they noticed more from that mod than any other when it came to the mustangs handling.

also yes, I can verify, theyre a fine upgrade for stock suspension, angle is already a little on the flat side even stock.

You are talking about the relocation brackets.
This is a very good mod. I lowered my car and had these put on and not only does it corner well, but it sticks on take off.

Everything else is for show.

Whiteline may not be the best choice. Did you search "Whiteline LCA" here?

I would definitely recommend picking up a set of Lower Control Arms. They will help you squat harder off the line and help a ton with weight transfer. I would also recommend picking up an Upper Control Arm. This can be used to adjust the pinion angle when you lower your car or are running a 1-piece driveshaft! I picked up a half a second in the quarter mile from UCA's, LCA's and a 1-piece aluminum drive shaft. My car gets off the line extremely hard now and has absolutely no wheel hop!

I hope this helps. Hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance. You can also hit up my CS team a call if need be. They can be reached at the contact information in my signature!

Whiteline did have a couple of issues with their control arms when they first came out, there's no denying that! However, I think they handled the issue very well and made sure all of their customers were taken care of. With Safety and Function being first on their mind, they recalled all inventory and completely revamped the Whiteline line of products! I can't say to much just yet but I'm going to leak a photo for you guys.

Here's a photo of the new Whiteline Upper Control arm that's coming out. The welds are insane, better/bigger bushings, three times as thick as the original design! You be the judge, Let me know what you think..

It looks a lot like Steeda's UCA. I had one in my hand less than 2 hours ago while I was at Steeda getting my LCA relocation brackets welded in.

Yes, we've put the Whiteline relocation brackets on cars with OEM lower arms. And performance per dollar, it's one of the best modifications you can make to the S197, particularly once it's lowered.

There are modifications that add more chassis performance, but they cost significantly more.
