I have the MM brand and love them. I can't say exactly how much exactly the control arms helped out because a bunch of stuff was done to my suspension at one time.

I would go MM. I have MM and FRPP/Steeda HD uppers which is a great combo for a street/strip car. MM Suggests the FRPP uppers if its a daily driver.

AAAAghh. Run away.

Those look like GMS stuff. questionable welds, shitty bushings.
Don't do it!

Maximum motorsports is the only way to go.

Also, you don't want solid uppers, stock or FRPP are the only two that
minimize torque box bind. this is a long subject, just trust me on that.

I have solid uppers and spherical diff bushings. I cant say that I feel any torque box bind. I also have a full 2in drop. I have had to replace the bushings before, but it was only $15. I also had double adjustable uppers with spherical bushing at both ends. not sure if the were adjusted properly but I could feel the bind with those and the ride was entirely too aggresive for my taste. throttle response was awesome though..definitely tight

Ya this is an interesting subject.

if you can feel the bind, that's alot.

High power and hard launches with that stuff can bend shit up.

Call MM and talk to them, they're the experts.

perch if you have springs, no perch if you have coil overs.
