Gears & Axles - Adj LCA?'s
11-26-2002, 02:23 PM
I just received BMR adj LCA's, and trak pak torque arm. Where or what adjustments should be made with LCA's. I am using 26" tire for now so do I just center rear and set pinion angle with torque arm or do LCA need to be at a certain place? This on a rarely driven streetcar so drag performance is all I am worried about.

They both need to be the same length. Remove one stock LCA and put the adjustable in its place. Then remove the other and do the same thing. If you remove both at the same time the rear end might move slightly and you will never know. Then you will have a rear end pointing to one side. The reason they are adjusable is so if your relocation brackets holes are farther or closer you can adjust the length of the control arms. The torque arm is holding the rear end in place. You can't move it back or forward any. It can only pivot on the control arm. Think about it.

well my understanding is you can use adj. LCA's to move rear-such as centering for 28" tires. If so, would I benefit in moving the rear slightly forward? I remember some doing this in turbo ragals in the late 80's-early 90's. I have also heard of "preloading" the right side. Any "secrets" out there?
either way the torque arm controls pinion angle and can be moved forward or backward some.
If you have an adjustable torque arm, then yes you can move the rear forwards or backwards.
