Most tracks have enough run off room to not crash if something does happen.

Or, aluminum bushings :p
They'll handle better, but will be LOUD (compared to other types)

Yea thats like deciding which motor mount to get, urethane holds it in ok and is nice and quiet. Solid will really hold it in, but will shake the living crap out of your car lol.

I second white line being garbage. A friend of mine snapped the whole bushing mount off of a set of their LCAs in his 2013 gt500 while he was drifting in a parking lot and nearly totaled his car. I run hotchkis everything and it's been excellent. I have trans brace, LCAs , UCA, sway bars, and panhard bar with SR lowering springs and koni yellows and my best 60ft was a 1.71 on 18" with slicks and my car could run a road race track all day if my damn brakes could keep up.

Control arms

Anybody have any specific good or bad feedback on steeda's control arms? My car is a daily driver, so just doing some occasional spirited driving and taking it to the strip once in a blue moon. They are having a 10% off sale right now too, so I can get everything a lot a cheaper than I normally would. Im going with coilovers in the near future, so I was looking at the adjustable uppers, non adjustable lowers, lca brackets and panhard bar.

I recently ordered 3 parts from steeda, one of which was the lower control arms. I have to say they look good and perform great. I got them at $180 for the pair because of package discount. Just make sure you get enough grease on them and it doesn't wipe off while putting the control arm plus spacer in the bracket or else it will squeak a little and you'll have to re-grease.

Ended up going with BMR for everything except for the bumpsteer. Got a 5% off code from latemodel via email, so came out the door at $750 shipped for the uppers, lowers, relo brackets, panhard bar and the steeda bumpsteer kit. Excited! Now that I am broke once again its time to save for my coilovers. Still can decide what i want for those.

We were running Whiteline Adjustable LCA's, but switched out to Bob's machined billet LCA's. These are so awesome. Lot less expensive than the BMR billet LCA's and these don't creak, squeak or clank.

I got mine here and they shipped the same day for free.
