Control arm relocation brackets

Next weekend I am going to be replacing my stock upper and lower control arms, as well as installing drag bags in the rear coil springs. Since I am going this far, would it be to my advantage to go ahead and add relocation brackets for the lower arms??

If so, is there any particular advantage to the "bolt on" or the "weld in" brackets??

I'ts up to you. They're used for suspension tuning to reduce wheel hop etc..
Are you getting adjustable upper control arms? If so you may not need the lower brackets. Always nice to have both tho'.
As for mounting differences there's ease of installation. Weld on may be stronger for strip use.

or if you want to go back to stock or easier replacement in case you bend or break one then bolt on would be the way to go.

im not sure what ppl use them for though

geometry change, or vehicle height change, etc

hmm

good luck

They're used for geometry change or IC/ InstantCenter change. For lower control arms, lowers mounting position. For the uppers they make NoHop bars/brackets which raises mounting position.
