    My buddies company just came out with tubular A arms for our cars...

    Made by the same local builder that fabs up these for Hotchkis for a lot cheaper...

    If you're interested in these or anything else they offer, Ask for Josh and tell him Mikey sent ya.

    He's a good dude and will take care of you.

    I'd be interested if they were lighter than the Speedtech ones.

    They look heavier.

    If you got time you can make your own. We had modified the bottom A arms, bought aftermarket top ones for circle track because we moved the wheels in 1-1/2" per side, went back to stock bottom and remade some more top A arms. Figure the pattern of the angles and make jigs. If you have to count your time, go buy them. These are the circle track ones but we did not like the travel for drag racing.

    This is in with the A arms above:

    This is back out to stock, and there is 2' spindle drop as well as 2" body drop on the front but it looks better with stock length A arms but again we made our own top ones. Took me a while to realize it looked better.

    Sweet, when is the next track day ?

    For the studs use the gold colored ARP they have a nice radius at the tips for starting the lugnuts, you can see them in my build pics.
