Stock Vs ZHP control Arms

So its time to bite the bullitt and get new control arm bushings and control arms.


Now i am looking around and Im getting prices that range from 120 a side for control arms to 229 a side.

The 120..meh at that. The 229 are the control arms from the ZHP 330's. Now obviously all the stores are gonna tell me how much better they are. Has anyone actually experienced them? seen a difference?

Gonna Go Oem for the arm bushings, seeing how PU is to rough for my liking.


so any input?


Im also going to start looking into a new shock/spring kit. Not sure what to get. Dont want much of a drop cause i already hit my undercarriage on bad speed bumps as it is.

input? Whos done E46 suspension work.
