    I adjusted mine to get more caster and camber than you would could get from non-adjustable versions. This is especially important when road racing and Autocrossing an F-body.

    I will change them so I can get even more negative camber for next season.

    @Vike I can't believe you never changed the bars or had SFC before the a-arms install. You will notice a huge difference with those new parts.

    UMI was an excellent choice for SFC's which makes up for you buying springs from BMR which was not a good choice imo.
    Well, it's always a money issue. First buying parts then have them shipped to Sweden.....+ the Unbelievable swedinsh taxes 25%.....

    Why do you think the BMR sucks? I find them very good with Koni SA.

    I know what you mean by shipping to another country even though I am adjacent to the USA the border is a major obstacle when buying parts.

    Upon researching for my suspension upgrade (best site is www.frrax.com) it has been documented that BMR parts are known to fail. Not just the lower A-arms but all their products including the chromoly versions

    Just keep an eye for cracks along the welds aswell as the tubing itself.

    The only part i have from BMR are these springs , all other one are G2 except SFC and swaybars.

    ...Progressive springs are hype. The car right now, stock.. has linear springs. But doesn't it sound nice to say you can have a nice ride when cruising and a race-car feel when you need it? Sure, and that's how they are marketed. Too bad it doesn't really work that way....
    Quick search on BMR springs fyi.

    Nice job! Yeah, those vacation days off working on the ride can be a bitch at times but well worth it in the end. Very nice job and I see you have one of those lil killer floor jacks? How do you like it?
