has anyone used the lakewood lower control arms, with the adjustable multiple mounting holes?
how well do they work?
i was thinking of 1) welding the housing brackets to the rear end instead of bolting them, this would give me one more hole of adjustment.
i would also Tig on a piece of .187 plate to the outside to sandwhich everythng together.
2) the coil spring height is not adjustable, i was thinking of cutting off their fixed spring mount and welding in a piece of 7/8" steel tubing, threading the inside diameter and making the spring pad adustable, so that as you raised or lowered the rear mounting hole, you could maintain the same ride height.

i also have a qa1 front frame, any advantage to welding it in?
thanks

Unless your one helluva welder, i would advise against welding your K member or your rearend housing. I had a set of HPM lowers on a Fox car that were the same thing. The traction improvement was outstanding with it on the "most traction" hole.
