Default DCR Lower Control Arms

Has anyone tried these out? im looking to get either these or the ones on modern performance. I would like to be able to adjust toe a bit more and was exploring my options. They look like a solid product but would like someone elses 2 cents.

If you're looking for polyurethane bushings then you should get the SPC/Mopar rear control arms.

If you go to Neons.org, a new company called Complx makes a set of rear control arms for the 1st gen that are adjustable with spherical rod ends. I know 2g/SRT RCA's are interchangable so i would only imagine these are as well

With the mopar ones they come in a set of 2, Is one on each side all i really need? im assuming having both adjustable might be over kill.

The way I see it for the mopar RCAs, based upon how modernperformance written the bio for it, it sounds like $140 goes into one side of the car, and you'll need to buy another one for the other side. You will need two rods per one of side of the suspension.

The Mopars also looks like it has bushings on the ends, which I really don't think is helpful when you want to extract and maintain the maximum rigidity and alignment stability.

Two adjustable arms per side allow for toe and camber adjustment. Only one adjustable arm per side only allows for only toe adjustment.

The Mopar ones are more intended for the street car that needs more rear suspension adjustability. For some people spherical rod ends may be a little overkill for the street. There's nothing wrong with either parts just different tools for different jobs.
