Che LCA's

I was wondering if anyone had a set of of che LCA''s and how everyone liked them? A guy I met at a dealership has a set for sale that came off his 11 gt pushing 700hp

I cant find any REAR lower control arms made by CHE, only front.

If he's putting 700 whp down through rear control arms, i guess they're not bad, but if he's trying to sell you front control arms the horsepower is irrelevant. Get some pics and post them up here.

I imagine with some wd40 and elbow grease, they will look much better

Still... Considering almost none of us on here have heard of them, its hard to judge their quality and durability. I like to know the reputation of the company when i'm putting parts on my car.

Just reading on other forums on the internet, they must be pretty good since they are compared to the steeda's and for $50 I'm sure that must be a steal!

No zerk fitting for the bushings? Ehh, im partial to BMR. Those honestly look like they've had a hard life, i'd just buy new ... I understand pennies add to dollars, but $140 aint exactly breaking the bank.

If he said he was putting 700 hp to them, you might want to think twice about the wear and longevity they have.

I wouldn't buy them. LCAs are cheap enough to not skimp out.

I will admit, I am CHEAP. But when it comes to buying car parts I feel like if they make it new, buy it new! transmissions, engines, rear ends are the only thing i would buy used. Or maybe some random interior pieces.

Are you going to install them yourself?

BMR is what I have my car and they are really good. Took about 3 tenths off my quarter mile with an adjustable upper control and lower control arms with relocation brackets.

BMR Suspension TCA032 Lower Control Arms Rear Non Adjustable Poly Bushings | eBay

I bought these, but in red. I installed them this weekend and noticed a difference when accelerating from a standstill and especially when turning hard from a standstill. $90 and from BMR, couldn't be happier. I'm in the same boat as LavaRedSixxer...I try to buy new, especially if the price difference isn't that much.

I took a look at the CHE LCAs on their website and very curious as to their claim of never needing to re-grease them (their website states "virtually eliminating need for greasing"). I thought all polyurethane required periodic greasing, especially if it's being used on a 700 whp beast. Sounds like you're pretty set on giving the CHEs a try so good luck and let us know how they perform. Do yourself a favor and make sure you clean them up really well and inspect the poly and delrin materials for any cracks/hairlines before installing to save you a big headache later.
