    NO.
    I guess you never seen pictures of the Granatelli lower control arms
    snapped in half at the welds did you? I seen and heard it happened more
    than once.I would never buy any of Granatellis' products because his
    products are of horrible quality and his products have left people stranded
    in the middle of nowhere before.Granatelli is simply a scumbag POS if you
    ask me.The smart people in the mustang community do not buy anything
    from him.
    If you are set on getting upper and lower control arms for your mustang
    I highly recommend the Steeda upper and lower control arms.I had them
    on my old mustang and I simply loved them and they are of excellent quality too. :thumb:

    If your Granatelli lower controls snap or break in half on you at the track on
    launch don't come crying to us.

    ok, I never said I was going to... I'll let you know if that ever happens.. I find that there will always be someone, somewhere that doesn't like one specific product..

    thats funny, because guys that actually own their products on all other forums say they never have a problem, but everybody that doesn't own them always "hears" of horror stories

    go check on modular depot and see what people say about granatelli...and JR is a sponsor there and still gets bashed for cheap Chinese made MM knockoffs.

    You might see a bunch of guys with basically stock stangs saying yeah i have them and love the etc etc but most guys with high hp and traction have not had good results.

    Tell this guy that. I bet he heard horror stories too until that.

    I don't need to have my car look like that. I researched when I was in the market for LCA's and listened to the horror stories of a certain particular brand of LCA's. That is why I chose MM instead.

    Go ahead and buy them it is not my car, and ignore the warnings and tons of threads on several known sites of telling people to stay away from his junk. When they fail for you, I will laugh at you.

    geez blackfang...seems as though you are the car expert...think about it, they show 3 cars where they had problems. What about the other thousands of people that use their products??? hmmm :slap:

    Thats just it, its dozens of known issues over the last 2 years or so! There have been so many threads where people were not happy about there shit...remember you are buying CHINESE MADE KNOCKOFFS OF MM PARTS. China does not have the same casting restrictions as in the US so the metal itself is weaker and made to lower standards. Why do you think they are cheaper?
