POS. Go with something a bit better. You want something with spherical bushings also.

Save up an get MM's. I've known a few guys around me, and they say the SR's they have never had issues with, but then Slow 4v had an SR upper actually break at the welds IIRC.

And if you go with the uppers too (not necessary), make sure you have spherical bushings, and reinforce your toque boxes. But the stockers have enough flex with the rubber bushings. Or like what I want to do is make a poor man's three link. That would keep the axle from shifting side to side indefinitely.

SR is chinese copypasta. With that said, I'd say over half the aftermarket is the same. Pro Products/UPR/SVE etc... IMO, buy name brand or have fun with something I guarantee did not pass a QC inspection.

If you want control arms get MM or Steeda lowers and leave the uppers stock. If they stock uppers are ancient original ones you can always replace the rubber bushings with new ones but that's it. The way the stock (crap) 4 link suspension is setup you need the uppers to be flexible to prevent suspension bind and to prolong the life of your torque boxes.

Hey,

I'm glad to hear you're interested in upgrading the factory control arms. Many people complain about the factory ones, and hence they go aftermarket.

Contrary to what several others have said SR does produces quality products. They use a similar tubular steel design and polyurethane bushings just like some of the bigger names like J and M and Maximum Motorsports. They are not quite as beneficial off the line as either of these two, but they will be a big improvement over factory.

At their price point they are a really good deal for what you get. If you are serious street or drag racer, you may be better served with a set of Maximum Motorsports or J and M control arms. If you use your car like most us do, the SR's will do you very well for years to come.

If you do go with the SR's or any other product remember we offer a 6% discount to our forum members.

I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions please let me know, or contact our customer service team listed below my signature. Good Luck!

-Dan
