Brand: Megan Racing
Part number: LX-0210
Car alignment is absolutely crucial when modifying your car. Alignment can effect every aspect of your driving experience, from straight line stability, understeer, oversteer, acceleration, braking and tire wear. Although stock components allow slight alignments from the stock suspension settings, they often are not able to properly align the car after the suspension has been modified. From the factory, most cars are set to have under steer and for optimum tire wear at stock height; under steer is often undesired from a performance standpoint and almost all performance driven applications are lowered.
Megan Racing Inc. has developed reinforced and adjustable control arms to accommodate the needs of the aggressive and performance oriented tuner. Being constructed of a Lightweight Steel-Alloy which is able to withstand the stresses of extreme competition, these arms are powder coated with a 3-Stage process to ensure durability and protection against the elements.
Alignment is crucial to the handling of your vehicle. Remembering that the only thing that touches the ground is your "Contact Patch" of your tires you have to make sure that your tires and wheels are doing exactly what you want. With this you must make sure you have the proper camber, caster and toe as well as make sure they are all working together and not against each other.
These Front-Upper A-Arms allow the adjustment of more Negative Camber in the front and are perfect for any driver looking to properly tune their machine for performance. The Powder coated Steel Construction also adds for durability and wear against demanding competitive conditions and rough driving surfaces as well.
These control arms be like the best thing on this car. I added the heat lightening hella gangster lower control angle kit and it got me killer angle but yet my upper ball joints were up to no good. So I ordered these johnnies and threw them on the following weekend. Went back to the track and won first place in hella sick skids. These things are awesome and I suggest them to everyone.
Megan racing is constantly back ordered but they’re always filling their coilover depot order which lets me get my parts timely if I order from coilover depot, this is amazing because I don’t have to wait months for parts from Megan. The arms work perfectly and allow for a decent amount of camber and a lot of camber if you flip the ball joints backwards. They’re strong and stay tight regardless of me daily driving my car 40+ miles every day
So after i installed the front upper control arms i notice a squeak. Which wasnt there before installed. It sounds to me like the bushing in the control arm are causing the squeak. I installed them a few days after arrival. But weeks later the squeak hasnt gotten any better if not worse and more annoying. Ive heard that old bushings can cause this even if brand new because of parts sitting for so long. I wish you guys could do something about it cause its pretty irritating installed a new part just to receive an annoying squeak. Otherwise the part did fix my busted upper ball joints
With aftermarket control arms, you sometimes need to go back through and take the wheels off put the car on jackstands so that the suspension is loaded like it would be when the car is on the ground. Loosen up the arm bolts to the chassis and bounce the car a bit to work the bushings loose, then tighten the bolts with the bushings in the normal ride height position it can help keep the bushings from being bound up at ride height. Also its always a good idea to put some Anti Seize or white lithium grease on the bolt where it goes into the sleeve, and always make sure you clean the corrosion and rust off the bolts before coating them, this can help keep the bushings quiet for a longer period of time.
Aftermarket parts are always going to take a bit more care and maintenance than factory parts. This should be solvable with ease.
Good quality arms, easily adjustable, great upgrade over stock arms... only issue "for me" is that the point where the balljoint sits is little bulky compared to a stock arm.
