ok first things first.

as far as power i am happy with my car...its all i need.

that being said i was planning on replacing the bushings on the suspension next year..they are all factory from 95 so they are kinda beat up.
i have a chance to get upper and lower control arms from someone i know who is upgrading his ride. so i figure why not just get the solids while i am in there.
he used them very little and they look like new.

question is this..i have read that solid uppers are hard on the car..yes i know i am not pushing any massive amount of power and this is a street car.
i am guessing that my setup combined with this wont hurt anything...but i figured when in doubt ask.

thanks guys.

I have tubular uppers. I'm not worried about it. Unless you are doing a lot of hard cornering you will be fine.

The issue is that the poly bushings in them don't have as much give so they are hard on the torque boxes that they mount to.

they have poly bushings...should i swap the uppers to rubber?
the lowers have poly to but i havent heard those being a problem.
