Re: lca which one

Ya Maximum Motorsports are great and Griggs are pretty good too. I wouldn't cheap out on something like control arrms. They are a critical component of your suspension and unreliable parts can cause major issues.

Re: lca which one

research binding issues on the rear end of live axle cars, that's why spherical bushings are good

Re: lca which one

Re: lca which one

but they dont prevent binding, not an issue for a daily driver or drag strip car generally though

Re: lca which one

Re: lca which one

sometimes the mufflers get in the way of pulling the lca bolts out at the frame side... so you have to unbolt the exhaust or take the hanger off and push the mufflers over FYI
