Spc 73000 control arms

Does anyone run these? I am looking for some input on these, but can't seem to find any reviews because they are relatively new. www.spcalignment.com › component › spc

There's nothing more important when buying control arms that they work! They must be adjustable enough to bring you back to OE specs or you've wasted your $$! I've been running SPLs for close to 10 years, my front tires are wearing perfectly! Once you get the right control arms, the next challenge is finding an alignment shop that knows how to align modified suspensions!
Good Luck and enjoy the ride...Gary

Agree with everything gary c said above. Especially with finding a competent alignment shop.

I see a nice improvement in ease of adjustments over their older style, which I have too. That camber nut (old style) is a pita to get to, let alone get it torqued down to spec once camber is dialed in.

However, I see the need for even a more competent shop to adjust these new designed ones correctly; being when you adjust camber, now your also changing caster at the same time and vise versa (old style was not like that). New style fronts are now kinda like the rear suspension geometry when adjusting camber, it affects toe and vise versa. Plus making sure those front bushings stay square in their buckets is another thing only a competent shop would be aware of during adjustments and final torquing of the keeper nuts. (watch their install vid:

SPC makes good stuff. I'd say pull the trigger if you're considering these for your G/Z.

Gary, is your car lowered at all? Also what version are your SPLs? My car has lowering springs and that's it? Not slammed, but it is lowered. You think the SPL will provide enough camber? Thanks for the input. Not sure I can trust the SPC without any feedback/reviews anywhere.

Those will provide enough correction to fix your alignment many times over! They look quite nice from the video.

What I don't like about them is they still use the hub spacers that have caused so many people much frustration. I have the SPL V3 arms and wouldn't trade them in on any of the other upper A-arms on the market.

what is your setup? Are you just lowered? Slammed? Thanks for the reply.

I'm dropped 3" on a sedan with Tanabe Pro 5 coilovers. I have the SPL front a-arms, Stillen rear camber arms and SPC rear toe bolts and am still in factory alignment specs on all 4 corners. The adjustability of the SPL arms is insane, they've helped me add almost +3 degrees of camber up front. That is what the cheaper versions of a-arms don't offer and one of the reasons why they're so cheap.....

A couple of pics for you for reference:

That's a sweet ride! I think I'm going SPL. Sounds like the best/safest option given there aren't any SPC reviews. Thanks for the input, bud!

What arms are you guys recommending for less severe camber correction? SPC, Z1, etc? I'm looking to stay with the eurethane bushings. I'm thinking when I install my coilovers to do the camber arms and I know there are thousands of threads with good/bad reviews and it's almost impossible to come up with a consensus. I'm guessing I wouldn't need more than a degree of correction to be well within spec, as I'm only dropped about 1-1.5". Right now I'm just out of spec, but I'm looking to replace them as much for the new bushings as for that final bit of camber correction.
