TRZ motorsports tubular front control arms

Just spoke with todd at trz. They are willing to offer a gp for us on their front tubular upper and lower control kit. Price is $900. If we get 5-9 people they will give us 10% off. 10 and above they will offer 15% off to us. If we get good interest, he will give me a code, and we will call in and pay. Once the corrwct amount of people pay, they will ship. Trz is a great company. They are a sponsor on yellow bullet forums and also steve morris uses their products for his wagons. Their fromt tubular control arms save 15lbs per side in weight.......

They mean stock suspension by spring and shock. It will work with any spring and shock. It says that becuz they offer it in a coil over design.

I would bet there's plenty of people interested(ME!), but committing to that price... Especially if a guy then can't come thru and causes the deal to fall apart.


Do not go gentle into that good night.
rage, rage against the dying of the light!

TRZ motorsports tubular front control arms

The fact remains,that $900 would make a bigger difference almost anywhere else it's spent. Extra "free" money isn't something that many of us have,without it being taken from something else.

TRZ site link says these are designed for drag racing....that much weight taken out of the control arms tells me they should be used on race-only vehicles.

Those thinking they would be good for a street app should proceed with caution....
