These arms are suspicious. I wouldn't install them on my car for 2 reasons.

1.Mild high carbon 1018 steel, very brittle, suspension with no flex likes to break.

2. MIG welds not conducive to long life and strength at the stress point-NO PENETRATION.

Remember what I say when the arm falls apart on a road course and tears up everything attached to it.

Any Comments?
