Speedway Rear Control Arms

Post by IndyG3 on Thu Jun 17, 2010 6:09 pm

I'm looking at a set of Speeway Motors rear control arms. Anyone have a set? Heard of any problems with them? Ideas for better ones?

Any boxed trailing arms will be 100% better than the stock "U" bend ones that came on these cars.

If you just wanted strength, you could take them off and weld them closed.

I'm personally running the billet aluminum ones from Performance Suspension Components.

The uppers are adjustable which comes in handy for adjusting the pinion angle on lowered cars. I know you lowered yours, so you might want to go that route. I don't think one brand is better over the other, but the adjustables are definitely nice.

they look pretty good for price but there are some on e-bay made by c3fab that can get powdercoated in many different colors. They also have bushings already installed are greaseable and will drill swaybar mounts if requested. The only thing is that they are not swivel ends like some others and not sure performance wise how that matters to much.

Thanks for all the input.
I got a lot of good info from you guys, so I went ahead and grabbed the Speedway Motors set. I got all four control arms and bushings for the price of just the lower arms from some of these places, and I'm just gonna mount my sway bars as I see fit. Adjustability isn't really that important to me since I just needed to make sure I wasn't getting any drivetrain wobble, and that hasn't happened yet so I'm not worried about it. Cool
