Front control arms

Looking around on AM, I noticed they now have some aftermarket front control arms. The BMR tubular arms look really nice. I have the common issue with the stock arm bushings "popping" while turning the wheel at very slow speeds. Has anyone installed a set of these yet?

That's not the control arms popping.. It's the upper strut mounts.. Very very common especially once lowered

Ball joints like to go bad too

My car only has 2800 miles on it. So I seriously doubt the ball joints are worn out. Could be strut mounts. I've also read the sway bar links tend to pop on lowered cars. I have an adjustable set waiting to go on now. I had 600 miles on it when my dealer installed the Roush springs. It started the popping somewhere around 800-1000 miles. Took it to dealer, and he said its the bushings in the control arms, that they have had several other cars with the same issue. It doesn't really ever do it when its cool. Mostly once the car has warmed up from driving around town. I am also interested in any additional benefit from the tubular arms as far as handling.

Definitely the strut mounts. Mine does the exact same thing. Replacing with gt500 mounts in a few weeks.

Mine did that.. I have 10k miles on the car stock suspension. Turns out it is a recall or so my dealership said.. Replaced both front control arms entirely free.
