d-mproducts.com
anybody heard good or bad about them?
are these bars more geared toward drag only applications and not daily drivers?
they have free shipping this month, $259 adj. upper and lower arms to my door.
i want some extended rear arms for when i bag the car.
on my budget it will either be these arms or i will measure the stock arms
and have suicidedoors.com make me a set. confused

I think you'd notice more road noise with the heim joint ends on those vs. poly or rubber bushings. When they finally get some wear/slop, you'll start to notice a clunking sound while driving and hitting bumps. If road noise doesn't much matter and you race your car a little they may be worth looking into.

thanks for the input.
when you say wear/slop how fast would this happen under normal street use?
i rarely ever race the car, i just need them for the axle placement.

Many things I've heard suggest that Daily Driving is harder on the LCA's than racing it.

It's the off camber stuff thats a problem.

I think those control arms look extremely weak. I wouldn't trust them on my car.

I am with Bill and Chris on this one Anthony. Get a good set of boxed LCA. You can get most of them extended to center the wheel better in the wheel house.
You will also need UCA as well. If you do not it will throw your pinion angle off alot.

thanks guys.
the price was right but the heim joints are what was concerning me.
i will put a call into suicidedoors.com and see what they can do.
there bars usually start at $45 a piece and up depending what kind of
ends you get on them. (adj.,non adj.,super pivots,etc.)
