    Spohn Tubular Upper A-Arms w/bushings (Item: 742 from their website)


    And if so, what shocks/coils are you using? Are you having any problems? Do you like them? I need to get front shocks and coils. I mostly drive this car as my daily driver. But, do like to corner pretty good. The last pair of shocks i had were not working for me.

    I just intalled the uppers.

    The lowers are supposed to be prone to breakage so I went with LG motorsport lower A-arms.

    Really? The lower Spohn's are prone to breaking? Like maybe on the mounting pertch where the bottom of your shock mounts? I bent the hell outta mine. Trying to get them fixed. If I can't I'll have to buy new ones.

    Are those solid bushings on the Lower A-arms? Did those come with the arms, or did you have to get them somewhere else?

    The lower bushing are a common replacement that the road racers use instead of poly/Derlim/1le bushings and yes they come with the arms:

    They are called spherical rod ends developed first for the use in aircraft construction. Almost all the aftermarket companies including Sphon, BMR, UMI, etc have these bushings as a option for lca, phb, a-arms, etc.

    Like I said in the thread (linked above) I had read that the rod-ends were supposed to be harsh but I really like them as they are precise and stiff.
