Umi 4062

Looking at these front lower control arms. I couldn’t find instructions on UMI web site. Does the 2 bolt mount on bottom of the shock just get pressed out and installed on the lca mounts?

I Just read the description on UMI's site. The referenced arms are for use with 1/2" rod end coilovers, if you are planning on using stock style mounting shocks, look at one of their arms designed for that.



I wish my arms were set up like the 4062 with removable lower coilover shock mounts as it would make playing with the rate of coilover springs (changing springs on the coilover) very easy.

Is the T-Bar mount removable from the qa1 coil overs. I have aftermarket suspension now. I plan on increasing the spring rate and would like to go with this design. I seen the 1/2 rod end shocks are required. But don’t see any part numbers Or shocks on their site with 1/2 rod ends.

Ok found a qa1 conversation kit part number Com8t-102pk. It switches the t-bar style to 1/2 rod end shocks.

T bar mount is removable from QA1 coilovers.
On my Cutlass I have QA1 Control Arms. Lower CA has a coilover mount that bolts in, which requires T-bar to be removed.
It's a really great design since you can convert it back to stock style shock/spring just by removing the mount.
