That is an old tsb. I can't remember when it came out. Some extended control arms fix the issue.

Anyone have issues with it? I was gonna get an xtended arm kit anyway, just cuz I dont like the look from the factory. Whats a good non-pricy kit? I've looked around, but what are you guys' experience?

I never use ebay, so I dont have/want to create a paypal again. Do they take regular credit/debit cards at stores like this?

You have to decide if you want poly or johnny joints
BUT, C3fab does jj's now AND if you notice their uppers are offset
Currie dropped that option
When you move the axle back the non-offset will bind

That doesnt look anything like C3Fabs JJ
I sent mine back due to cross country shipping abuse but looked like this

I DO believe Currie has more experience, but I wasnt thrilled with the round stock used for the lowers.
Seems the designs keep changing for the better

I have Metco in the 96. They initally showed signs of bind in the rear.
That made me search out the johnny joint that was only sold by Rustic Racing
Currie was RR supplier. They stopped making the offset uppers.
That made me look to C3Fab.
I have them all but have only run the Metcos so far.
I WAS going to swap the Curries into the 96
I'm putting Hotchkis lowers & Metco uppers into Matts car
$ for $ I think C3Fab is the winner (this is the 1st time I heard of JJ probs)
