Are they even available other than directly from Global West?

They are available somewhere else(forget where) but are more expensive than direct.

Year One? sells them. I saw a lot of negative feedback for this company.

I bought my springs direct from the manufacturer and had a great experience. However, I have heard of others having a long drawn out time trying to get their parts. YMMV

this brings up another question. how good is hotchkis stuff? I am seeing a couple of places that carry hotchkis rear lower control arms.

They're inferior to GW arms, and not superior enough to anyone elses to be worth it... IMHO


Anyone but GW is going to be using standard rubber and/or poly bushings, so as long as it's a decent arm, it'll be about the same as anyone elses for most applications.... BMR makes a nice set for about $160 if you don't need the bleeding edge performance of the GW arms.

I was going to get a set of BMRs. But I was concerned with breaking. I have seen a couple of posts where some had cracked. I don't autocross or anything but I drive the car hard at times. Has BMR fixed the new arms so they don't crack and break anymore?

I drove my old 9C1 like an animal on the harsh NYC roads. My frame broke, but the BMRs are going strong on someone elses heavily modified 9C1.

thanks for all the help. I think the BMRs will suit me just fine.
