They make your car faster by maintaining proper wheel/tire and suspension geometry which improves consistency and reduces rolling resistance caused by deflection of factory control arms and rubber bushings. In drag racing this means better 60' times due to improved and more consistent contact of tire with ground, no wheel hopping and less tire resistance during acceleration. In autocross / road racing maintaining proper suspension geometry during cornering and braking means better control and greater consistency which yields better lap times.

The struts/shocks/springs are responsible for the majority of the ride feel in a vehicle. You will only notice the difference of the control arms during acceleration, braking and cornering.

they ride fine...

they make more difference in firming up the front end then any other mod ive done.

yes you keep the sway bar, since it isnt at ALL attached to the a-arm.

they are a great mod. i love them!
