its my understanding that you can get which ever kit you want. he didn't specify. he just said, "Sure ..... A minimum of 5 orders , 10% discount !!"

I would have been interested in a GP if they were control arms, and not trailing arms.

Great quality stuff though. If I ever decide to replace my BMRs, C3 will be the supplier.

So, are these not considered control arms? They are trailing arms? I always read "control arms" when I have shopped for them.

.

No the Service Manual refers them as 'Trailing Arms'. CTRL arms are up front. I'd have to wait 'till I get home to verify though (I certainly have been known to have been wrong now and then).

The Compnine website exploded isometric illustration bill of material refers to them as CTRL arms as well.

I'd have to DBL check when I get home, but I'm pretty sure Bill Harper (Navy Lifer) was the one who corrected my terminology when I first joined the ISSF and had to replace my lower trailing arms in my 9C1.

if they are called trailing arms then i've been saying it wrong. the website calls states it as rear control arms/rear trailing arms.

hmmm, I was told that the extended trailing arms will not mess up the pinion angle, but not positive. I'll ask around.
