    Do you have any plans for your factory lower A-arms? I might be interested in them if you aren't planning to keep them.

    no. got to get around the bassani tru-duals for that. the only one that should clear is the lakewood version that bolts to the body of the car. lots of drilling into the florpan.

    hope you're only into straight line.
    if you're into cornering, i'd consider returning some of the BMR parts and get the UMI... that are really built with lateral loads on mind.

    what? there's another form of racing involving turns? didn't know that.

    wasn't it a UMI that had a lower control arm crack at the welds once? maybe i'm wrong. i did see the new UMI double brace k-member.

    never heard of it... but heard of few BMR K-member failures and many BMR PHR failure. BMR seem to do great stuff for straight line only... anytime it involves cornering... parts seem to be weaker than stock.

    Hello,

    We have never had a A-Arm or control arm crack, break or fail to date.

    Hope that helps,
    Ryan

    lower a-arm is very critical... and the only 2 companies that i would trust with their product there is LG and UMI. Otherwise, you better keep the stock ones.
    K-member + lower A-arms is not the place to cut corners (literally)

    Hi Ryan!

    I believe the failed A-arms you remember were BMR.

    The new hammertone looks kewl!

    You have allot of parts there mrr23 good luck with the install!
