Ive got well over 30k miles on my standard length Hotchkis control arms, and no problems, BUT Kevin Elliott does all the service, and he loves this car so much, he polishes the sway bars, and all the nice chrome and painted stuff under the car....So it gets a lot of love and miles!!! In fact, hes looking for a RoadMaster Sedan to replace his Camaro. I told you these things are addictive.

Try Loctite!!!!
