Nice suspension. You will be ready to rock-n-roll at the Fest.

In the top 2 pics... is that bracket failing on the control arm? Looks bent.

Lower pics look fine.

The Pedders stuff looks good!

THe uppers are the old control arm. I shot some video I'll put on here and I put some bigger washers on each side. Not gonna help though. It's definitley failing. It's bent for sure. I got some pics with the links off. Post them in a bit. I'm gonna put it all back together.

Spohn makes control arms. I may get those if Pfadt or Pedders doesn't make them soon. I think BMR is supposed to have theirs available soon as well.

Ask body shops who they use for frame damage and alignment, one name will rise to the surface... That's who you want.

I have the SPohn arms - they are really nice and beefy.. boxed in and made out of 3/16" thick steel. Well worth the money.

Did you get the Pro-drag or Pro-touring lower control arms?

I went with the Pro touring with Delrin bushings.

Here is a picture of my rear suspension.

600hp-lpe:
I notice your Spohn control arms do not have the dual mounting holes for the shocks. On Sphon's web site, they indicate that the Pro-Touring control arms have 2 holes whereas the Pro-Drag control arms do not.

Even though IPS (they have my car right now) says that my stock control arms looked fine, I'm considering going with the Spohn arms based on PQ's experience.

I keep getting mixed up as to which arms are which.. DE..you are right.

I guess the ones I have are the drag race ones - I didn't need the other adjustment hole, as I lowered the car with the coilover's.

They are a high quality part. I really like them! All of the rear Spohn arms are 1st rate pieces.
