UMI Performance control arm relocation brackets quickly turn your factory or aftermarket rear control arms into a lift bar set-up. The relocation brackets are designed to lower the rear mount of the control arm changing the instant center point for improved traction. After product installed, you will see a great increase in traction by lowering the rearward angle of the lower control arm, allowing more force to be placed on the rear tires. Relocation brackets have two settings to allow the lower control arm to be lowered either 2" or 3", depending on vehicle height. Settings are placed in a correct pattern that will allow use of all OEM control arms or any aftermarket control arms (brackets do not require a longer control arm). This product is designed to work on lowered and non-lowered vehicles, please see below for additional information.
Sway Bar: This product will work with the factory lower control arms but will not fit correctly with a factory style rear sway bar. To run a factory style rear sway bar with these brackets you need to purchase UMI lower control arms. The following lower control arms will allow the use of a factory style sway bar- Item #3611, 3612, 3613 and 3614.
Non-Lowered Vehicles: Product installed on a factory height vehicle is designed to decrease wheel hop and tire spin. Lowering the rear of the control arm instantly plants the rear tires harder into the ground, increasing traction and reducing tire spin.
Non-Lowered Vehicles: Relocation brackets are a must for all lowered vehicles to correct lost suspension geometry. By lowering your vehicle, you are changing the lower control arm angle allowing the rear mounting point to sit higher than the front. This will, in return, cause wheel hop and a great deal of traction loss. Adding relocation brackets will correct the control arm angle prevent traction loss. Installation: Brackets are weld-in only, supplied bare metal and install in approximately 1 - 2 hours. Hardware and installation instructions are included with each kit.
