Control arms help

Replacing them rear control arms and I want to get people's input! Don't want to go super expensive but also don't want to go super cheap. The SR ones on AM scare me $140 for all four? If so done got these and can let me know of any issues please help!

only change your lower control arms... leave the uppers alone unless absolutely necessary.. I wont go into detail but yeah just change the lowers...
If the price hurts then don't even change them unless there is an issue with yours but lower will help your car hook

I have maximum motorsports they were like 300 dollars or something but I got them from a friend who sold his car before installing them so I lucked out and got them for free... why do you want to swap them anyways? what made you think to do the mod

I'm swapping the rear and had to cut the bolt. The bushings are being a nightmare and are $90. So thought i might as well spend a little extra to just replace the whole arm

Don't cheap out on parts that are always doing work. I've seen the SR ones, they are garbage. I have the MM ones sitting in my room waiting to go in, they are very nice quality.
