hi I have south side lowers on my car with the relocation ears welded into position but I still have stock uppers. my question is would doing a relocated adjustable upper cause problems with moving the IC to a non ideal location?

The only way to know if relocating the height of the front upper bar mount would a favorably or unfavorably change your IC is to measure the new location and calculate its change to your IC. Unless KS has a magic way to check the height of your pivot points and calculate your CG through the inter web "Yes" is not the right answer.

If, for example your car is lower than stock height, chances are a lower front upper mount position may help you to optimize your IC. You can't always get get the IC you want by just moving the height of the back end of the lower bar.

A simple change to the ride height of the back of your car can significantly change the front pivot height of your upper and lower bar, and with that the corresponding angles of those bars. This WILL effect your IC positively or negatively too.

Blah, blah, blah.. Re-read his question then re-read your answer. He is asking if SSM Lift bars can be used with Relocated UCA's. The answer is NO.

Since I own Baseline Suspensions and design Relocated UCA's I am INTIMATELY familiar with EXACTLY what products can be used with them and SSM Lift bars CANNOT be used with them. So unless YOU have spent 20 years designing, building, and plotting rear suspension geometries and developing a data base of different suspension combinations your comment has zero merit to his answer.

Using one of my three on-line IC Calculators found at the top of my website is one way that someone can plot their own geometry out before they even buy one of my kits:

^^^^This right here. Oh, and not to mention the companies that copied your design.
