I am building a new car so I took the upper rear control arms off of my old metric car because they are welded up and have good bushings in them and when i get the ones off of the new metric car they are about a inch longer. this will definately increase pinion angle if I put the old ones on the new car. should I put the short ones on or use the ones that were on the car. I don't know where the welded ones came from===they were on the old car when I bought it. What is yall's opinion???

if both cars are metrics the arms are the same length the shorter plated ones were probably shortened to set pinion angle by other owner put those on and chek pinion angle look on and check out pinion angle set up tips for four links.

run the short ones and keep the others for spare
