BMR LCA

I have been doing some research on LCA, and I am planning to go with BMR.
However after all the research I still have some question and I hope that you guys can help me out,
I am planning to lower my car in the future. This is my DD. So far my mod is bbk shorty, mpt 91 tune and mgw.

Poly BMR Mustang Steel Rear Lower Control Arms Black Hammertone (05-14) TCA032H
vs
SPHERICAL. BMR Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms with Spherical Bearings - Hammertone Finish TCA022H (05-14 All) - Free Shipping
I know that spherical does give out a little more NVH, and it is design for higher horsepower applications. my question is will it be more beneficial to get the spherical over the poly?

second thing is
BMR Mustang Steel Rear Lower Control Arms Black Hammertone (05-14) TCA032H
BMR Mustang Rear Lower Control Arms Black Hammertone (05-14) Chrome Moly TCA019B
I can't really see the difference between these two. Can someone please tell me?

Lastly for the installation.
I only have jack and jack stands.
I do know that I will need to support the axle while I'm working on the car. Do i have to jack the axle up while my car is in the air? or do i just have to stabilize the axle (with a jack stand so it don't drop).

Thank you

1. You dont need spherical bushings. The point of the spherical bushings is that they do not bind under movement like a very high WHP drag car, or a road race car will see.

2. The difference is the material, steel vs chrome moly. Chrome moly is ... either stronger, lighter, or both, i cant remember off the top of my head, but it is "Better" if you chose to spend the money.

3. How many jack stands do you have? I would suggest 4. Get the whole car in the air and supported on the pinch welds, then just place the jack under the diff enough to support the weight, not enough to actually pick it up. Have a GOOD torque wrench for this job, as some of the components need 130 ft/lbs. This means you'll have to have the car nice and high to get the leverage you need.

Thanks volt
Non adjustable is good enough right?

So with my understanding.
I should jack my car up as high as possible in all 4 corners. And have my jack support my axle.

For the grease part. Do you have a brand you would recommend? Also in the future ( as recommended every 500 miles). Do I just need to use the grease gun and fill both holes?

Really appreciate your help.

You'll be fine with non adjustable.

Yes

Advance sells a marine grease, its blue ... typically they'll know what you're talking about but i dont remember the name. It only needs to be refreshed when changing oil too, 5000 miles, not 500. Typically just a few pumps is good too, dont need to fully regrease it. If they ever dont have enough grease you'll hear it, its almost like ... idk, the sound your hands make when wringing a metal pipe between your hands you know? Its obvious.
