the upper a frame mounts you can grind the plate off and move it to get better front end settings

They're talking about the lower a-arm holes. They drill 'em out straight to take out any bind or twist, then weld washers over the elongated holes. As far as the uppers go, move the left mount out 1/2 inch to help with camber. Just be sure to move it out only, not forward or backwards, and keep the original factory angle on it looking downwards. Usually 20 degrees.

How much of a difference do these control arms make? Right now my front right control arm is almost hitting the exhaust manifold . Was wondering if they give a little more clearance.

I re align the lower control arm mounting holes on all the mods i build but would charge about $100 to do it for a stock/hobby car cause of the time involved.

we had it done to our car too, the reason they do it that are seems to bend and twist real easy, it not that strong area, so it best to adjust them straight across from each other. The tops mounts are untouch just added offset cross bar like described above, makes alinments must eaiser and flexible , i do alignments for a living so im fond of them they make my job easier. just my two cents
