Yeah I took note of that.

I don't think they "helped design them" as much as UUC said "we want your existing aluminum arms, except made with chro-mo"

Agreed, but I just went by UUC's site. Don't want to make anyone mad...

This is how UUC worded it:

Quote:
Co-developed with OE-supplier SPC Performance, the combination of OE engineering and UUC's enhancements make these arms truly "ultimate".

Nice write up Zach.


What is one step above the stockers. I dont want RACE by any means, I'd just like something a little bit stronger than stock.

I'd look at any of the reinforced OEM type arms, but basically anything with rubber bushings rather than the monoball end. The SPC arms are very good & at half the cost (or less) of some of the others.

My problem is that I already have TCK coilovers, so I'm tempted to get the TCK arms simply to match & so that any failure won't result in manufacturers turning a warranty claim into a finger-pointing match.

Can't go wrong with TCK, but it is going to be a noisy ride.

And now my brother wants me to clarify, it won't be a deafening ride, just a slight increase in ambient noise in the cabin.
