I personally purchased the first one. Waiting to be installed. I will let you know how it drives in a week. But I heard the reviews are good on either ones

They are exactly the same besides one using higher quality DOM tubing and the other using box steel. You won't notice any difference functionally.

The first one is not DOM........I am assuming that is what non-DOM means. Is it ERW??
Personally I wouldn't have anything less than chrome moly......for suspension parts.

I have some BMR LCA & relocation brackets for sale. I just purchased a 2015 GT and I didn't want to trade the car in with them on the car. Nothing like saving a little bit more money. They were on the car about 5 months.
501-650-1790

I also have
• weather-tech floor mats,
•Steeda strut brace,
•GT front upper and lower honey comb grills with GT style LED fog lights

It's a $50 price difference. Get the Polly bushings. Same ones I run, no need to be cheap over $50

I don't see any difference between them. Both have Poly bushings.
One says non DOM and the other doesn't specify as far as I can see.
If there is a difference I somehow missed it.

True should have edited that part. It's the material the arm itself is made out of. When they first came out BMR explained what it was.

Right now it doesn't specify....you'd think if they were using DOM tubing they'd be making a big deal out of it....but it's not mentioned. so who knows?

A quick trip to the BMR website and the only square tube arms that say DOM are the poly/spherical bearing ones.....hmmm.
