Upper and Lower control arms, lowering springs, re-alignment?



I'm debating wether I think I can do the springs myself or not. But if a spring compressor is needed, I'm not going to touch that.

A fast-working shop should have something like that done in about three to four hours, a little slower shop would take around six. Just my guesses.

Yeah I know, but I don't have a torque wrench, jack stands, air power tools, and it would take me forever, plus everything is covered in snow. It's a cluster ****.

The springs and LCAs are cake dude, just do it yourself.

The UCA is a bitch though.
Maybe I'll do the springs and LCA's, and have the shop torque it down when I go in for the uca

Call me.

O really? The write up I just read on the springs made it seem hard as **** with taking off the rotors and strut mounts and then reloading it all.

Reps for that.


Do yall think I will be able to sell the stock control arms and springs?

You could try but the chances of selling em are slim to none IMO.

You should keep them so that if you ever get rid of the car you can return it to stock first.

How much are you lowering it? If its like 1.5in I would say get the relocation brackets. I need to do that still on mine. Since I lowered it I cant get as good of a launch so I cant break out of 13.5 :( I also feel like I have less traction.

Probably not much luck selling the stock parts.
I didnt even click the other links, but this is the one that I used.

Its super easy man. Relo brackets are needed if your lowered




Somewhat mixed opinions here. I guess the relo. brackets would help, but not necessary?

Here is what I'm getting:

Adj. Uca & Lca's

1.5" drop eibach pro kit

camber bolts
