SPC camber arms or HTP tubular arms... im torn

Okay here's the scoop, I'm lowered about 1.6 running on KW springs. I went the cheap way out and bought the rear camber bolts with little to no success. After much deliberation I chose to buy the entire adjustable camber arms for an even more extreme adjustment. Now I have no idea which one to go with, the SPC curved arms or the HTP tubular arms, both are roughly the same price I just don't know what the difference is.

The obvious choice would be the HTP. The tubes are much more stronger.

There not the same thing. The SPF arms are the UPPER arms. Used to adjust camber. The HTP tubular arms are the LOWER arms, used for toe. Note the curve in the SPF arms? This is for frame clearance. I have the SPF upper arms btw. There built pretty solid. Can be a bugger to adjust (not hard, just trying to get 2 wrenches placed can tax ones patience!)

The HTP replace the lower dog-bone arm. The SPC replaces the blade arm. You could do both, but that would be...silly. I have the SPC arms, but have been considering the HTP for a while now.

I have the curved arms on, just recently got them. My tires stand straight up for the first time, ever. I love them. :)

Well, I don't know about the other ones, but it would seem like you would gain something by buying two different products, right? I just know the ladies compliment my fantastic upper control arms all the time; they love them! :)
