does anyone know the exact measurement for what the length of a stock upper control are is for a metric car? and is there a supplier out there that makes ones that are 1" shorter on the right and 1" longer on the left?

could anyone give me an idea on a good type of control arms that i could use that has worked for them. I am meaning a brand and sizes. Also ones that are easy to find used if possible.

I also have had people tell me that i should lower the right side mount and angle it forward about 5 is this true or would it really help.

I'm assuming that you are looking for something that looks stock. The camber changes you're looking for are most commonly obtained by using an older (late 60's - early 70's) nova left front lower on the right front and an offset upper conrol arm shaft on the left front. Moog makes the offset shaft, I got mine through rockauto.
