Default Curious about these

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1964-...Q5fAccessories

Price seems awfully good. Not too crazy about the made in china stuff. Don't want to trust the life of my family to it.

How do these look to you ?

Those look great Bill, are you happy with how everything bolted together? That seems like a great value for the cash!

I'm not a fan of the reverse-engineering (design copied from GW arms) involved. I'd rather support the companies that do the development involved in revising the geometry.

I like SPC's arms as a reasonably priced, USA made, well developed product. Lowers are $540 and their adjustable uppers are $300.

Oh I agree but when i seen the ones I linked to above were made in the US ,it really made me scratch my head. Got me to wondering did they just copy someone, or buy their castoffs and are selling B stock.

Ahh... I didn't look that far into them, I thought they were the Chinese GW knock-offs. I'll look into them more before making any more comments.

I do see that the uppers are designed for stock (short) spindles, NOT for tall spindles.

Price is good for 4 arms. They say more caster and camber but no specs. Would be nice to know more. No expert here, just wondering. Do you just need new arms or are you looking for something that will really allow you to adjust the suspension for touring? There are tubular adjustable arms, cost more, that allow the front suspension to really fine tuned. Again, no expert, just asking what you're goal is.

I just need to have my front suspension looked at. Last summer I was having a hum when I went over 70 and a small vibration.
