SS #670 Modifications:
Lower control arms
Although I ordered SS #670 with the Bilstein Y2Y suspension package which includes revised lower control arms (basically they have higher durometer bushings) I later upgraded to BMR lower control arms.
They are tubular and are powder coated black with red polyurethane bushings, grease fittings. and
use the factory mounting bolts. Not only are the bushings stiffer,
but they are smaller in diameter than on the stock bar. Installation
was straightforward and the new pieces look stout.
I installed the lower control arms at the same time as the panhard bar so it's difficult to tell how much they contribute to the improvements I saw. I was also expecting more road noise since I went with polyurethane on both ends but so far I haven't noticed a huge difference.
The new control arms weight 4 lbs each which is about the same as the stock versions.
