Suspension Modifications and Noise - Advice Sought

Recommended Posts

Madlock / svt13 - if both of you still have your stock driveshaft in your cars then both of you should go back to the stock UCA and make sure that you torque down the UCA bolts while the suspension is loaded.

 

Well then there should not be any angle problems with going back to the stock UCA .

 

You don't have an understanding of what "bump steer " is or you would not make that comment in regards to a solid axle, a solid polyurethane bushing UCA and LCA's go into bind as the solid rear axle wants to articulate - where do you think that you have a "metal to metal" contact on the UCA ? At the threads/jam nuts ? There should NOT be any gap there if you properly torqued the jam nuts. IMO the Shelby UCA is going to give you the same as you have now - you are better off going back to the stock UCA . As far as bite goes - use the height adjustments that you have on the LCA's . As far as pinion angle changes go on a 3 link solid axle during suspension travel it involves a relationship between the length of the upper arm in regards to the length of the lower arms and where they are at in the arch of their individual swing radius that determine how much and in which direction the pinion angle change occurs when the load/torque is applied. If you are reluctant to change out your UCA , then double check the clearance between the bolt and the sleeve on the 2 bolts of the UCA.

 

Madlock - let us know if indeed you get a chance to change out the UCA back to stock and what you find while you are still regrouping from Hurricane Sandy. Really do hope that you find what your looking for. The 2013 GT500 is a wonderful car from the get go but for those who can not accept the car for what it is and feel that they can mod it out better than anyone else but can not find happiness in what they have done to the car should think about this - Maybe it just isn't the right car for you - buy something different . Good Luck and Enjoy the Ride !

 

Hey man. I'm sure you've got plenty of experience - with cars you've actually happened to work on. Just not this particular one.

 

After swapping the Shelby/BMR adjustable arm and mount with Shelby's single-piece adjustable unit, the car now drives and sounds like it should with no clunk whatsoever - meaning it's been attributable to the particular UCA components being used, and NOT any particular dependency upon using the OE third link assembly to soften and absorb any gear lashing noises that hadn't previously existed.

 

Thanks for your help anyway. Maybe it'll benefit somebody else whose car is exhibiting something entirely different altogether.

 

I like how you and the other guy who said it was impossible to fix this now are acting like madlock didn't make you 2 look like for lack of a better word ignorant by fixing his clunk.

 

svt13 - as you can see that my recommendation was to go first after the UCA and a suggestion to put back in the stock one (to save some money) and as Madlock has indicated by him changing the UCA he was able to fix HIS problem . The only one looking ignorant here is YOU and your obsession with a driveshaft/differential claim . Just the fact that you feel that you have to be the center of attention shows that your arrogance is to par to your ignorance.

Well in mad locks case that assessment was incorrect. We will see though as I said

 

My response to you was to address the question you asked me and was not an assessment of the OP's issues.
