You can't go wrong with Hotchkis Products. The fit and quality is top notch. I installed these with the Hotchkis lower control arms. Traction is no problem anymore! Thank you AM!

You get what you pay for.

Got these with everything to do the rear end. Full install took about two days mainly because getting everything apart is a pain in the REAR (you know what I mean). I cant really sing enough praises about ...

    Tighten Up!

    Install was fairly easy. Replaced these along with the Hotchkis Lower Control Arms that I purchased. Lining up the axle with the control arms was kind of difficult, but probably because I removed both sides simultaneously. I did have an over stiff rear after install. The difference between the lift of pushing down and the fall of pulling up was about an inch. Called Hotchkis and was told that if 70 ft/lbs was causing the stiffness to dial it back a bit. I ended up taking the upper and lower arms down to 64 ft/lbs and the rear floats like a charm with no squeaks or clunks. Fairly easy to grease. Only major problem was unrelated to the product and that was removing the axle housing bushings. A little tough to get a torch everywhere I needed to so that took more time than the actual install of the arms.

    You get what you pay for.

    Got these with everything to do the rear end. Full install took about two days mainly because getting everything apart is a pain in the REAR (you know what I mean). I cant really sing enough praises about these control arms though. They fit great, look great, are well built and the instructions are thorough right down to how youre supposed to install the sway bar. Very high quality product, fit and finish. I would recommend these to anybody who wants to do rear control arms and never want to worry about them again.
