Building a 1969 camaro convertable. are heidts tubular upper and lower control arms worth the cost? What is the advantage of the Heidts over stock? Or is another brand better. I am not wanting to lower the car just wanting to build a better driver.
They do not change the front end geometry which is the reason you can only get so far with a stock setup. They do have nice bushings and all but you can do that to your stock arms plus new ball joints and get the same benefits for $150.
That said, you'd be surprised at how much better it'll handle just doing a complete poly suspension rebuild, slightly lower coil springs, and fat front sway bar. There's more you can do but those add up to less than the cost of those control arms. If you're not ready to buy larger wheels and modern Z rated rubber on it though you'll only gain so much.
