    Torque Arm. The ultimate solid axle setup. It elimantes the upper control arms all together...

    Thanks.... I wish, but the notch still has a crappy stock suspension besides Bilsteins & Sportlines....

    I do have these ready for install as soon as get the tq boxes reinforced....Thanks to Chris 1991NotchbackLX for the great deal a few months back....

    Those are nice LCA's. I really really wanted to spring for those, but just went cheap. I think it will be so cool to adjust the cars suspension with the flick on an impact.

    The uppers are cool in zinc. They will never corrode and oxidize. AT least, mine didn't after 8 years. I should weld a peice of steel in my stock uppers to strengthen them up a little. 1/8" will do.

    That's great that we can pretty much all trust one another to pay pal money around and ship parts. That's why I like a lot of the members on this site.

    And Chris....if you need anything else for "something" you let me know. I have some stuff you might need.

    The easy adjustability is the best part. I have ran them on my old 97 & my mach 1 before I went with coilovers. I have adjusted them in 5 minutes on the side of the hwy with a 1/2' ratchet with the car on the ground... Its that easy....:flag:


    Thanks again Chris.... BTW, keep that car man:nice:

    my car fell in the same percentile, took the quads off and had wheel hop. for what it's worth I also replaced the diff bushings also, but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

    Ok now I'm stuck here.

    Spend some cash and get the quality ones (MM/Ford Racing) or save some cash and get the LRS ones like SVT32VDOHC says...

    This really will be mostly a street application. If I never plan on taking my car to the track, should I still go with MM? Or go with the $149 set and maybe afford some Eibach pro-kit springs too :D

    But also... the cheaper ones will damage my torque box? Even in street use? Again this is a daily driver.
