Rear control arm sets from dick miller racing

Well after spending some time on the phone with him and the wonderful response to his triangulation braces and finishing up a successful 2nd group buy
I got to talking About what else he could offer our community

Something else I thought a lot of people could use both for performance from a suspension stAnd point and to make the car more visually appealing as to center the rear wheels to sit correctly as they should and for us that love the big rim skinny tires so they don't rub on our 22 24 or 26 inch rims and tires

So same deal need 10 ppl in he offers

Fixed Crome moly lowers that I believe Have to double check the needed 3/4" longer than stock good up to 450 horsepower and

Adjustable upper control arms only (no no-hop bars) for setting pinion angle to get the car to hook better and preload to get the car to launch straight. To use without no-hop bars or with cast iron no-hop bars.

If 10 people are interested I will head up and put together this group buy as well even though I do not need them as I have c3 fab extended arms with hotchkis springs and sways with dmr braces in the rear already

But here is the deal the price for the no no hop bar set up is 341 for the uppers and 249 for the lowers for 590 plus shipping if 10 want in he will knock off 100

If you want the no-hop bars set up its 525 for the uppers and 249 for the lowers still 774 and still can do 100 off

Here is a Link to the options and cars available let me know how much interest we have

Been checking and this cheaper than most especially the big names
The uppers are adjustable to match up pinion angles

Waiting on a reply about bushings used if hardware is included and exact extended lengths

He did say the non hop version is best for us 1/4 life guys and the set without for autocross guys

Yes on the 3/4".
Polyurethane
Our sets are designed to use your existing GM bolts. Any new hardware needed will be included. Rear end housing upper arm mounts for the non no-hop bar sets are not included but can be bought (1 pair) with upper arms.
#DMR-5028 = DMR-5025 fixed length lowers and DMR-5032 uppers and no-hop bars = $631-100 = $531.
#DMR-5025 fixed length lowers + DMR-5030 uppers (no-no-hop bars) = $590 - 100 = $490.
We have no-hop bars for the GM 12 bolt, 10 bolt, 9" ford or Chrysler Dana.


Here is the info he sent me on bushings and hardware

Rear control arm sets from dick miller racing

Modified length trailing arm have been offered by multiple manufacturers for many years now. I suspect most of the potential customers already have them installed on their cars. The braces are more specialized,and I have a set myself. The same issues remain for them too. That's one reason this latest "group-purchase" didn't generate the same numbers as the first one did. Most of us who would be interested,already have them.

Winner 2001 Road Course (prep. class) Detroit,MI
Winner 2006 Drag race (SS class) Indianapolis,IN
Quickest event reaction time .013sec. (final-round)
Class Winner 2014 Charlotte,NC. 2016 NOLA car shows
Winner 2019 Road Course (prep.class) Pittsbugh,PA

3CFab or C3Fab sells a set with hardware for $330 shipped.

Unless I'm missing something else these offer, which I have a feeling I might be, I think the average user is fine with the price point they offer.

If you push 3/4" you're going to simply target those who plan to buy an extended DS.

3C also lets you pick your own color.
