I know this subject has been hit a million times on here, and I done a search for the info I'm looking for and couldn't find what I needed. What I'm needing is the length of the Nova control arms. I know its said they widen the metric front-end 1.5" I think my metric lowers are 23.75" or somewhere around there. I need the length from the center of the front mounting bolt to the center of the ball joint hole. If someone happens to know, do tell please. I'm just making sure 1.5" is right and I need to know the exact length if possible before I buy a set. Thanks Guys!!!!

I just measured mine and (with the ball joint in; so not perfect) and it measured out to 16" from the center of the front bolt hole to the center of the ball joint.

Hope this helps.

No problem. I should clarify one thing; the 16" measurement is from the center of the front bolt hole to the center of the ball joint as mounted on my car (reversed L and R control arms for the metric chassis). If you measured them as they were meant to be (L on L; R on R), then the number would be ~18".

Hope this makes sense!

yep makes sense.
I just remembered what the 23.75 was. It was the measurement from the ball joint to the centerline of the chassis LOL! My bad. Thanks for the info.

how much does the length from the mounting points, to the ball-joint effect body roll......just something i was kinda thinking about and just wondered if a longer a-arm would make the car roll over more.
