Ok guys, upper A arm question. 80 camaro super stock car. I'm looking at getting the offset type upper control arms #91720002 and 91720003 and also the weld in A arm brackets #906-34309. Do you think they would be a good choice to allow me to setup my front end correctly? http://www.speedwaymotors.com/ I'd like some input to see if I'm going the right direction.

The Mount looks ok, just make sure you add some good support gussets (on the side you aren't mounting the cross-shaft.

The A's look a little weak in the BJ area, would strongly suggest you use the type that accept skroo-in balljoints. Take a look at Stock Car products, they will make your arms with any offset/length/balljoint angle/balljoint style .... you want ... at about the same cost.

Stock Car Products is where we got our arms from and I have the mag. if you would like to borrow it, I just gotta go steal it back. The prices are reasonable which is another plus.

I WOULD BUY LEFTHANDER ADJUSTABLES THEY COME WITH A TEMPLATE WHICH MTS THE A ARMS DIRECTLY OVER THE LOWERS FOR PERFECT GEOMETRY, I BUY THE PIECES AND MAKE MY OWN TUBES FROM 8 FT STICKS OF HEX ALUM IT COSTS ABOUT 35 BUCKS DELIVERED FROM COLEMAN...

THEY USE CHRYSLER ***** IN BJ, AND HEIMS ON FRAME.....
