PostSubject: Front control arm questions   Thu Jun 11, 2009 1:00 pm

How much of a difference in performance would I see from switching stock upper arms over to some tubular arms with all the fancy bushings and stuff? I already have tubular lowers to put on but I'm not sure if I should spend the money on uppers or just get new balljoints and bushings put into the stock ones for now. I figure the rebuilt arms would probably run about $200 with parts and labor as compared to $600 for the new ones assembled, but I don't want rebuilt stockers to become the weak link in my suspension.

Any thoughts or opinions from those who know about this stuff would be greatly appreciated. Also anyone who knows someone that can put in the bushings and balljoints at a reasonable price I'd also appreciate that info in case I choose that option.

I'm done rambling for now Very Happy
