Full catalog

Their arms aren't just for track guys, if you want to run any sort of aggressive wheel (yours are not), these will let your alignment guy set it all up properly

I thought you were referring to the wheels not the upper control arms. So the Z1 upper control arms have been breaking? They did send me a replacement outer ball joint set to replace the old ones I had due to a manufacturing defect.
They have held up pretty good so far, I would hate to break one at Barbers in December.....

Ok I just found the threads related to the Z1 control arms breaking. I can see getting some SPLs in their place. Much better design. The Z1 ones came on the car when I bought it, previous owner is related to Spencer at Z1 and they did all the work on it when he had it.

Are you using loctite on the SPL hex cap double adjusters or the allen wrench bolt that locks them in after adjustment?

Nope. Antiseize. I don't want the parts to crode together.

Fronts aren't aggressive at all. Rears are SUPER aggressive. Can't see those fitting without widebody or ridiculous camber.

Thought so. Last thing I want is to ruin the ride with stupid camber
