Aftermarket control arms and the Guldstrand mod are complimentary, not alternatives.I vote to save your money, and do the free Guldstrand mod.

Why do you want coilovers? Ease of setting ride height once, or are you going to be setting and resetting ride height frequently? Remember, each time you change ride height, you need to realign the car. If it's ease of setting ride height once, I'd use AFCO adjustable spring spacers http://www.afabcorp.com/AFCO_Dynate...oduct_Code=20191&Category_Code=ct_coil-access and their 9.5 inch springs http://www.afabcorp.com/AFCO_Dynate...tore_Code=A&Category_Code=ct_springs-gm-front.What about doing the guldstrand mod and adding coil overs? Can you add coil overs with stock a-arms?
Feel free to send me a pm on Global West arms. I have them in stock and have room to move on them.I am going to convert my 67 to tubular a-arms. Any thoughts on the cheaper ones that CPP is selling, says they are made over seas. Is it worth it to buy the Global West ones at twice the price?
Your post implies there are quality or functional differences between the GW control arms on the one hand and the DSE/Speedtech on the other.Global West will work fine if you are on a tight budget.
But, if you can afford the DSE or the Speed-Tech, you will be very happy!!:thumbsup::beers:
The hotchkis Arm's were not ready when I wanted to do A arms ,so I went with Speed tech so far so good ,did the TVS kit at the same time ,like a new car ...witch ever ones you do USA made ,too much junk from oversea's vendors....:yes: Happy motoringAgreed with several of the comments above. No matter what arms you buy, make sure they're made in the USA. The imported stuff has not only been prone to fail in the past, but we've also heard from several customers that they don't even fit right sometimes, since the factories over there don't use high-end jigs. It's not worth compromising safety to save money on something as critical as a control arm.
