I ordered BMR's black anodized billet control arms with poly bushings. Was this a wise choice in lca's selection?

Well its a little late to ask this question now, but what are you going to be doing with the car?

I'd say any LCA is better than stock. I bought some cheap J&M LCAs when they where on sale and they are far better than stock. I've only had one case of excessive wheel hop and it was wet as **** out. Otherwise the car either 'glides' or 'flutters'... my words and yeah they sound a little fruity but it describes it well. It either just glides across the road with no traction but very nice steering input or it flutters a little. Its like very faint wheel hop but doesnt jerk the **** out of you.

They just about have to be the strongest out there being machined from solid billet. They look pretty, like you would ever see them hardly, LOL.

Aftermarket LCA's are GREAT for reducing wheel hop... I have taken about 1000 miles off of my tires in trying to make my car do the wheel-hop. It seems to be gone!!! The way the BMR's are built it seems to me to be the best LCA's

I was looking at BMR's website and I noticed that the Billet ones cost $289.95 while the regular ones are only $134.95. Is it really worth the extra $150 for the Billet LCA's?

How much of a racer are you? THey probably way a hell of a lot less than the others.

Then the regular ones will be fine for you. I got the ones with the rod ends on one side and those ALONE killed my hop and didnt really add that much NVH into the car. My car is a DD and i have no problems running rod ends. Hell if you could get the Billet LCA's with rod ends on one side i would have gotten those. WIth the SLP loudmouths and the X you are running i doubt you would here the added NVH the rod ends would add anyways.

HTH!

Thanks, my car is also a DD and I'd rather save the extra money If It won't really do much for me anyway so I guess I'll just get some regular LCA's. Now my only problem is what company to choose. BMR, UMI, J&M, Steeda each one seems like they would be good.

Well CRAP!!!! Late Model Resto just called me and said BMR told them the billets LCA's will be on a 1 to 2 month backorder. They said they pulled all existing ones off the shelves and was doing a redesign. So with that said and done, I ordered SVE billet LCA's from LMRS. They was a $100 cheaper and looks sweet as hell. Shipping tomorrow.
