I just got done booking my travel for a trip to Europe this summer.
After going through the itinerary (rewards travel), I looked at the connection I had to make at LAX from SFO (routing SFO-LAX-LHR-DUB). With just an hour of a connection time, I called the desk back to request a change to the earlier flight. The agent told me that a change would not be necessary since both flights were arriving and departing out of the same terminal. My flight from SFO and to LHR apparently both arrive and depart out of T7.
Is this true or should I go ahead a change to an earlier flight anyways? It was my understanding that they were in separate terminals and that to get to the international terminal, I would have to leave security and walk/bus it and then get rescreened (reasoning for wanting more than an hour to transfer)
I should know the answer to this but it's been forever since I last flew international out of LAX (03' LAX-FRA).

The flight from SFO arrives in Terminal 7 and the flight to LHR departs from Terminal 7 so you can connect with very little time. Even if your flight is running late, you can usually make a connection in less than 10 mins.

Regardless of where United parks your flighs in any of the terminals they operate from (T-6-7-8), they are all linked and do not require any added security clearance.
Only issue I could see is on the SFO end, as weather wise the airport is notorious for delays even mid summer when the fog is around. But a 60-minute UA-UA LAX connection is very possible, and technically the minimum connection time that is published is 30-mins.
