The control arms don't necessarily control the front to rear rake or height. Spring length and stiffness is what determines most of it. You can get stock replacement arms just about anywhere. Is there is specific arm you're looking for?

They aren't cheap http://dominanteng.com/2010/12/17/fo...-control-arms/

It would be better to just get a proper suspension kit to replace the cheap Megan springs.

The thing I don't like about Megans is their spring rates. They're heavy enough for a race spring but they call then "very streetable"

You could always take out the rear spring insulator (piece of rubber between the spring and spring bucket. I got and extra 0.5 inch low from taking it out. You don't get any extra road noise out of it and it tightens the rear up a little bit.

I did that when I put em on and your right it helped. I think the hieght is good, I like a little wheel tucked, but its not practical anyhow. I think with the euro 15 spoke itll look good.
