Paul. I was told that tubular arms are stronger and have less flex then boxed. I run these and love them. click

Scott, i was talking about front control arms, but thanks!!

Derek, thanks, i wasnt sure if they were strictly for drag use or what!! I do a lot of street driving and some track time and i wanted some lighter weight better handling front tubular control arms!! Any other ideas if not these that are cheaper?? Thanks guys!!!

I just got done installing TRZ upper and lower control arms on my 70 SS Chevelle. Real nice stuff and excellent customer service. My car is mostly street driven and they said they would be fine. I knocked about 30-35 lbs off the front end. Cost was about $900 complete with ball joints and delrin bushings installed. They dropped the front end about and inch. Havent had it on the road yet. Still wintery here in Michigan.
That Malibu in CHP sure is baddass!!

I was looking at the TRZ Billet Aluminum Steering Arms and they claim to help bump steer. Can they be used with all other original components? or do you have to convert to Rack and Pinion? Sure is an expensive upgrade.

I just looked at the BMR website; their products LOOK well marketed. They apparently have a large inventory of applications to fit a bunch of GM and 2 generations of Mustangs. They seem to know their market and hopefully they know their applications well. I'd be interested in knowing of anyones experience with these front U & L control arm packages- especially in a standard OE apllication; ie: non-dropped spindle.

The prices seem almost too good to be true- that's what worries me.
