UMI Performance's new bolt-in control arm relocation brackets are a 100% bolt in set-up that require no welding, drilling or cutting. They are a simple bolt on that can be completed a 30 minutes or less. Please read below for more information.
Lower control arm relocation brackets reposition your instant center by changing your lower control arm angle for improved traction. Relocation brackets lower the rear of the control arm up to 3, 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. Lower control arm relocation brackets allow you to correct this angle and gain back much needed traction. On a stock height vehicle relocation brackets will also work excellent to eliminate tire spin and wheel hop by changing the vehicles instant center point. Note: Bolt-on relocation brackets will not work with aftermarket rear ends.
Lowered Vehicles: We do not recommend lowering a 3rd or 4th generation F-Body without lower control arm relocation brackets due to the compromise in the geometry on the instant center. Brackets will significantly improve instant center position, eliminate wheel hop and increase traction. Brackets installed will also help 60-foot times of .10 or better, lower ETs and increase track consistency--a must for all lowered vehicles!
Non-Lowered Vehicles: Product installed on a stock height vehicle will also 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 your preference. Settings are placed in a correct pattern that will allow use of all OEM control arms or any aftermarket control arm (brackets do not require a longer control arm.) Brackets installed on a non-lowered F-Body provide a .10 or better 60-foot; reduction and an increase in track consistency.
Installation:Brackets are 100% bolt on and require no welding or drilling. All hardware and detailed installation instructions are included with each kit.
Fits Camaro and Firebird Models.

Our search for good manufacturers and quality products showed LMPerformance that UMI Performance began in 2003 under the leadership of Ryan Kirkwood and the guidance of his father Denny. Together this father and son team developed a large variety of products for many makes and models of GM vehicles as well as the Ford Mustang. Ryan saw a large demand for suspension and chassis products, and felt the market was lacking of options and full of highly priced items. So, on May 31st 2003, UMI began its journey in the aftermarket suspension industry with a 1994 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. This car was used as a test bed for the beginning stages of UMI’s Fox and SN95 platform products. The products began to move very quickly, becoming almost impossible to keep in stock. The faster they manufactured them the quicker they sold. In late 2003, UMI purchased a 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 which was used as their F-Body platform design vehicle. Slowly, products began to arise on the market for the GM F-Body, and quickly UMI Performance became a well respected company, becoming one of the largest suspension manufactures in today’s market, enhancing our line products.
To confirm LMPerformance's selection of UMI Performance as a supplier our further research on UMI indicated it operates out of a 35,000 square foot facility - this new facility located in Philipsburg, PA was recently acquired by UMI in March, 2011. UMI Performance manufactures 99.9% of their products within their facility from start to finish - from raw 24 foot bars of tubing to a finished product on your door step.
