The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the meat.

Bump for this was the place I meant to post, Keith. But thanks for the FE3 -> FE4+ answer on your other "sneak peak" thread.

I'm assuming you're talking about the TCA028 or TCA029 lower control arms, right? If you don't ever plan on switching to the FE4 Suspension, there is no reason to change them. For aggressive street driving, the FE3 is more than capable!!!

Some help please folks. I am going with Weld RT-S 17" rims on all four. I have the BMR adjustable LCAs ready to install. So my understanding is my rear sway bar WILL NOT work now? I use the car for fun, not a DD and some serious dragracing. OK, yes I said serious dragracing and it's a V6. I already have many other BMR suspension parts on the car.

Unfortunately, we will only be making these as pictured with provisions for both suspensions. We can't start making custom orders for one person because every person on here will want something different!!! I hope you understand!!!

If you have a 2012 V-6, you "should" still have the FE3 sway bar set-up, where the sway bar end links mount on the inboard side of the shocks. If that's the case, you can certainly hook up your sway bar to the new LCA's. We have not been able to do a test fit yet with the FE4 suspension and 17" Welds, but I would think the end link or the sway bar itself may contact the wheel.

Just ran across this.... FE4 with 17" Welds. Looks like it'll work with a little bit of modification!!!

Hey Guys, I got some bad news about these new revised lower control arms. We ran into a bit of a speed bump going into production on these. We have some unplanned tooling issues that will take some time to resolve. I've been pushing hard to get these going, and I know I've been telling y'all about 2-3 weeks, but after talking to management this morning, reality is probably more like 4-6 weeks now. In addition to adding the provision for the FE4 Suspension, we are also looking to add a little more clearance between the LCA and a 17" wheel. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause with your planned Spring-time mods. But I can honestly say the end product will be well worth the wait. Good things come to those who wait!!! Keep waiting guys....they'll be here eventually!!!

I would expect about the same time (4-6 weeks). We are reviewing our costs to build these in an effort to provide them affordably!!!

Keith, the control arms aren't the issue, it's the trailing arms. Just saying.

Are you talking about the TCA033 Trailing Arms you installed with your 15" conversion? After those were revised a while back, I am unaware of any remaining clearance issues with those. I'm interested to hear what you have to say though....I'll send you a PM so we can discuss.

Thanks for the updates on the LCA's. These are the last piece of the puzzle for me. I just hope you guys can get them out the door in time for the first LS fest

I just recieved mine and installed them yesterday. They are a very nice piece however I'm kind of frustrated. I've exchanged emails and phone calls several times with BMR over the past few months trying to get these. Even after a shipping mishap, I finally got them. No big deal. But the instructions start off saying I have to use adjustable toe rods with them. Why didn't anyone say something? I don't care about the money, it's just annoying to finally get my parts and have to wait even more for more parts required for the install.
