Anyone noted a "measureable" change in 60' times after installing rear UCA's. This would be in addition to haveing LCA's.

TIA

Since we are on this topic how about LCAs stock length or extended?

As far as a straight swap, I wouldn't expect much.

With them adjustable, you can adjust pinion angle to get more "bite" and help 60 ft times. Note this more aggressive pinion angle probably isn't gonna help your U-joint life.

All else being equal, a car with extendeds will be slower than the same car with stock length. Geometry gets worse, and weight distribution gets worse (i.e. more front heavy) with the extendeds.

By "measureable" going from OEM to aftermarket I was hopeing for .03 or more improvement in 60'.

With that said the Hotchkis LCA's I have on are superior to OEM lowers. Now I am adding the uppers to finish out my suspension.
