Right Stuff parts, reviews

Hi guys,

After looking through 7 pages of hits, I couldn't find anyone who uses their control arms. I wish the search engine will allow "" to look for exact word combinations.

Does anybody run these in their cars and how happy are you with your setup? Are they from the same shop that makes the ebay ones? I installed Right Stuff's brake lines 8 years ago and quality was good.

Here is the link to the Jegs:
http://www.jegs.com/i/Right-Stuff/96...ductId=1623814

Part number: Right Stuff UCA6769, price is $249.

I sent Jegs a question on what bushings they install and if they can replace them (delrin, for example), per customer's request. No answer yet.

My 67 is sagged on the passenger side due to the worn springs. My plan is to have a nice handling street car with Moog 6308 springs and Koni red shocks. The car has a disc conversion kit installed (1.5" drop), Vintage a/c, p/s, no-name absorbers in the front, multileaves in the back with Monroes. The ride is very soft (feels like a Caddy).

So "while I am at it", I figured I will replace shocks, springs and upper control arms. I will powder coat the lowers.

Thanks,
Den

The Koni Classic (Red) is a good choice. I have them with 550# front springs.

Thanks Don, for the input.

Now I just need to know if the Right Stuff upper control arms are a good choice and call it a day :-). Btw, Jegs is not in a real rush to answer my email. I might just call them on the phone and ask.

Re: Right Stuff parts, reviews

Those look like the ebay arms so if you search for ebay arms or look at the "popular thread" sticky at the top of this forum there are some links in there towards the bottom. I'll save you a little time though....consensus from those without them is that they're too cheap to be any good while the consensus from those who do have them is that they fit and function fine other than having to change out the slug inserts (where arm mounts) on the earlier models.

Best bet would be to call Right Stuff directly about the bushings. Same price there. Going through Jegs is going to be like asking Wal-Mart where Heinz gets their tomatoes.

Re: Right Stuff parts, reviews

Thanks, Steiner. That's what I thought about their origin. I also called Speedway about their $319 upper control arms with Del-a-lum bushings (if interested, part number 91034267). Turns out they are made by Procomp (Chinese company).

I talked to my old friend, mechanic who owns the alignment shop. He recommended going with the scandc.com adjustable upper arms for better tuning in. I will call Mark this afternoon to discuss it.

Re: Right Stuff parts, reviews

Update: I just got off the phone with Mark. Awesome guy! A cornucopia of useful information. I ended up ordering their Stage I Plus with Nascar racing ball joints uppers, along with the camber/caster gauge.

It is nice to know that there will be someone I can talk to in the future if I run into issues with the product.
