Anyone ever moved the lower control arm mounts on the rear of a metric frame. And if so what kind of changes did you do and what kind of handling difference did you notice. wanting to try some things on a street stock over the winter but just thought i would see if anyone had tried anything withany sucess.

Driver I know cut out lower mounts off of another frame and welded them to bottom of his lower mounts and is one of the fastest cars in our area, can't honestly explain, what this improved as I don't know much about metrics suspension. But he was FAST.

Did he cut the front lower trailing arm mounts and extend them down ?

Looked like he cut lower mounts from another frame and welded them below existing mounts. this would give some adjustability. he had single hole lowers on axle housing.
