Hey Guys,

I pulled the engine and Trans out of my 75 TA and was going to freshen it up and clean up the engine bay a bit. That has mushroomed into completely gutting the engine bay and replacing my existing control arms with tubular. I see so many companies selling them for our cars and prices are all over the road. I wanted to see if anyone has gone this route and can possibly help me avoid making a mistake.

Have any of you upgraded to these and was it a nightmare to get aligned or did it go smoothly? Seems the "cheaper" or less expensive ones might have some issues when trying to align the front end. Here's a link to Performance Online which is the company I was thinking of going with but before I spend $1000 on this kit I wanted to maybe get some other opinions. Thanks,

The price seems alright for what you get, but I'd rather buy springs based on rate and usage as a matched set (front and rear) rather than stock or 1.5" drop with no specifics other than stance.

Have you taken a look at PTF?

I have no intention of hijacking thread Wehrlebird.... I have the same car, idea, and questions! Have been researching and still don't feel all that knowledgeable. The POL link you inserted says their control arms already have ball joints installed. Curious if that is a good thing or not?
Thanks,
