Thread: Adjustable Rear upper control arms

  1. #11
    I am shocked at how low the spohn prices are. I wonder how long it take.. at that price it would be dumb to pay 400 a certain d vendor wants when u can get them to make u a brand new one for half the price. I dont regret modifying mine but this is definalty an option for owners I think. I am guessing that they would require the lowers to do it.

    That's why I'm trying ta squeeze you for the bushing width LOL

    Looks like the lowers use the same bushing so I can double-check widths on those spare lowers I have. I kinda forgot I even had them until this evening.

    If Spohn has a fixture they can use to fix the link angles for welding then lowers should be easy, too. I'm sure an additional charge would be involved.

    Right and I am with you that you really dont need uppers and lowers to be adjustable . Just more flexibility.

    Thats pretty sweet. Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Marty from the Midwest club make something like this back in the day?

    Marty made them for the rear lower control arms. These are for the uppers. Same idea.

    Nice job....looking forward to seeing the difference in alignment. I'm adding this to my "year after next" list.

    Well I finally got these installed and all I can say is wow they transformed the car. Much bigger driving improvment then I expected. The car feels much more planted and more predictable. Less wishy washy in the back end. At speed much less driver Input. I wish I would have done this sooner. Car drives much straighter. Best part is it only took an hour on the lift to install them . I am gonna move on to the front end now and try and do some improvements for caster .
