Re: Help, Tubular Control Arms, I read all the FAQ’s
If you are looking for a couple extra degrees of + caster, use an offset upper control arm shaft and bushings of your choice, all in the original upper control arm. It will keep it looking original.
If you want aftermarket control arms, buy high quality, not cheap. I cannot vouch which ones will get you the caster gain you are looking for.
A big front sway bar will make an immediate, very noticeable difference when going around a corner.
A tall upper ball joint is a nice improvement. But in a valuable car like yours with original, good ball joints, that would necessitate removing the original rivets.
