    A lot of that "hike" in in springs and shocks and how the car is scaled. I had a car with 12 hole locations so it allowed a bunch of angles for my lowers and nothing ever made the car hike up more.

    Can anyone offer any clarification of the lower a-frame rules please? The bold text says only OEM, but the plain text before it says UMP approved aftermarket ones are allowed. I am a little confused.
