Eibach... or other lower control arms

Anyone else notice a huge amount of wheel hop with the stock set up??? ***** rattles my teeth something fierce. Has anyone installed these Eibachs or other lower control arms? Did it make a difference in wheel hop?... or posture on the street?

Thanks

I just installed the BMR lower control arms with the relocation brackets and so far so good. Problem is I still have the stock 235's back there but now it's a nice smooth burnout lol

Re: Eibach... or other lower control arms

Every one likes a certain brand. BUt they are all really basically the same. I have BMR on my car now. Bushing on one side and solid on the other. From launching so hard I have split one the bushings. I will be going spherical ends on both sides now. I will most likely try these as well. Good price and as said really they are all the same.

Also if you don't want a noise ride don't go with spherical ends. They are really really noisy. They will transmit more road noise, rear end gear noise, and squeak more. YOu will want want ones with bushings.

UPR and UMI are real good brands also that are a little cheaper then BMR/Spohn.

Re: Eibach... or other lower control arms

What do you think about the Eibach ones.... They look really solid. My problem is that I am in Germany and I can’t go down to the local Pep Boys and see anything real and touch it. I am sure you can imagine that getting parts for American Muscle cars over here has its many challenges. Same goes with exhausts, cai, yadda yadda yadda. I cannot actually see or hear things in person which plays hell on my ability to make educated choices.......... that’s why I am depending on y ‘alls input to make the most educated decisions based on the information I get.

I put on my Steeda rear LCAs and frpp k springs on at the same time.. I had EFFING TERRIBLE wheel hop b4 but none whatsoever now.. Not sure if it was the combination of the two or just the lcas that corrected it.. But all is good now!
