Bang for the buck? SR product

These LCA's and UCA's look decent and the price is super cheap and the reviews are nothing but good things..

Are these worth a damn? I thought about having someone get them for my Christmas.. I mean hell they've gotta be better than the big heavy stock pieces.

I'm sure they aren't as good as a maximum motorsports but if they're a gift to me I don't see why not to see if I can't get em

Strictly a drag racing, some street racing in Mexico and weekend cruiser. Definitely not a daily.

The bushings they come with are junk. I bought a used set for 20 bucks. Guy I got them from only had a couple thousand miles on them and the bushings were toast.

I believe Steeda is offering 15% off suspension components on the 23rd. Could PM TJ from Steeda to be sure.

Maximum Motorsports. There is a reason their lowers alone are more than all 4 SR control arms............ You get what you pay for, and if its strictly drag racing, do you want to risk it?

i have the BBK Gripp uppers and lowers and they work really good but are a little to heavy in weight imo.if i had to do it all over again,i'd go with the lower aluminum Steeda arms but man they're pricey and a good Steeda upper control arm.

Don't skimp on suspension parts of all things.

The Steeda LCAs are good, those are the "cheapest" ones you should consider. Leave the upper control arms alone, they need to flex to prevent suspension binding and snap oversteer.


Honestly I've had both the MM and Steeda ones and I did not notice any performance difference.
