ok, so i got some money and want to get some lca's, i think the bmr's look good. anyone have any experience with these. i like the street ones, any diff between the street and race. sholud i be considering another company? do i even need adjustable ones? how much will this stop my wheel hop and slipage on stock tires? i plan on getting new tires and rims soon by the way. i drive on the street and just need some help leaving the stoplight. but i want them to be able to go to the track if i need them.

do i need the relocation brackets, it looks like moving that attachment point lower, you get mor grip?

thanks

The BMR LCA's will make a night and day difference to your vehicle if you are battling wheel hop on launching. As for the adjustable ones, you don't need them unless you are doing serious modifications and are trying to turn to racing for a carieer.

Ok, I'll be the one to stick my neck out here... What the heck are LCA's. I probably know, but can't think of what it stands for.

Lower Control Arms...


I got a pair of MMR (not BMR) Streets for my V6, and although I am fairly new to the world of hi-perf cars and drag racing, I have had no complaints thus far. Handling-wise, it's hard to say how much they helped, because I had a T-Lok and rear sway bar installed along with the rear LCAs...overall, though, my Dix is firmer in the fanny now without a doubt.

Unless they've upgraded their website/services recently, you have to call MMR to order...can't do it online.

I would endorse your purchase. But heck, when it comes to our babies, I pretty much endorse ANY purchase...:wavey

Lakewood was always a big name in LCAs, at least for F-bodied vehicles.

I got a set of BMR's to sell real cheap. They didn't do much, if anything, to eliminate wheel hop. I'll be trying an upper control arm, a.k.a. upper 3rd link, next summer. Might opt for a set of billet lca's as well.

I have purchased BMR products (front and rear driveshaft loop with tunnel brace, subframes) before and I must say, I was REALLY impressed with the quality of their products. BMR would be an excellent choice in my book

It is kind of vehicle specific ( and driver specific ) as to whether or not LCAs help any with wheel hop. Many people say yes, a couple say no. Same goes for the 3rd link, some say it took their wheel hop away, some say that they had to also add the LCAs after adding the 3rd link. But sounds like you are on the right track. If one doesn't work, the next might.

It is going to strictly depend on your vehicle and your driving. When you say you want to "launch like a rocket" are you talking a launch at 2500rpm, 3000rpm, 4500rpm, what?
Flip through this thread over at TMS on lower control arms.

If you decide you want a set, just so happens that BMR Fabrication posted a discount code in the thread that expires today.

Go to the Members Gallery and look at my pics... I have installed all but one of the BMR parts (Upper Control Arm Bracket) for the 05-06 GT. Here is their website address: bmrfabrication.com/2005Mustang.htm

This is my first experience with BMR parts... I usually use FRPP suspension parts, but I was really impressed with the looks of the BMR parts. Now that I have them installed.... I'm not disappointed at all. Their parts are heavy duty, well made and all power coated. All the parts with Poly bushings have grease fittings and the bushings are grooved so the grease can actually lubricate the assembly.

I have the Adj. Upper Control Arm, Adj. Street Panhard Rod and the LCA Relocation Bkt. The bracket should help with launching and will keep the LCA parallel if the car has been lowered. I had to adjust the pinion angle after lowering the car using Ground Control Coil-over Spring Kits.

I haven't had the opportunity to test the performance capability of these parts, but I will at some time in the future.

I have the Street LCA's with an Adj. Upper Control Arm. I can't answer your question about Wheel Hop... I have never launched the car that hard. With the Adjustable Upper Arm and the LCA relocation bracket, I'd have to say there wouldn't be any wheel hop.
