Upper/lower control arms.
I found a really good deal on some control arms through a friend of mine. Just wondering if I should go for them.
I know they help launches, but will I see any overall handling improvements?
Also, I heard that continual launching with control arms will wear on the frame. My car isn't that 'hardcore', but I do plan on getting a A-Trim at some point. Would this be an issue with me?
Should I go for them?!
What I have:
1990 Red Mustang 5.0 LX:

[Front and rear sway bars]-[New black carpet and seats.]
[Adjustable Fuel Regulator]-[T5 Conversion w/ K. Cobra Clutch/Hurst STS]
[Cobra Throttle Body]-[130A Alt. Conversion]

I loved the change brought on by my lower control arms. The rear end seemed so much stiffer. I could corner much harder before the back end came loose. Not to mention they help w/ launching.
I'd get them. I've never heard anyone say they like the non-boxed, stock control arms better.
