Sounds like a good price if their in good shape for sure. Offer them 50. But ive always heard decent things about UPR products for the most part and what i have read about their control arms too in the past were good reviews.

Well that's definitely good to know.
Say i buy them, is there anything i should look for? This would be considered my second suspension upgrade, so i am not what you call knowledgeable in many aftermarket products.

I'd also like to add, i came across a bassani high flow x pipes. Are they any good? I have (not installed yet), short tuned bbk headers, and some flowmasters, which i plan to upgrade to borla in the next couple months. I have three questions. One, do you think they will fit an auto? Two, will they all pair up fine? What type of sound should i expect?

Thanks again,

If you are a fan of snap oversteer and cracking the welds on your torque boxes... sure install aftermarket upper control arms.

In the stock suspension setup, OEM control arms are the best and safest bet especially on a street car. Only time you should ever run tubular uppers is if you are class limited for a 1/4 mile app.

Here's a good read.

In a nutshell, if you are keeping the solid axle the only real CORRECT way to make it right is to go to a 3 link setup (like Ford did in 05).
