you don't want solid uppers with bushings on a street car, the OEM uppers are made to twist to prevent binding so if you use a solids you need a joint at one end.

My lowers were rusted all to hell so I replaced them with the Speedway lowers. They are boxed, and pretty well made, in India I believe. 10 years with no problems.

With the lowers, you will want some sort of poly ball joints on one end to limit binding.

When I boxed my stock lower control arms, I had Camaro 1LE high durometer rubber bushings installed.

If you have the stock sway bar installed that limits the twisting of the lower control arms so boxing the lowers and using stock bushings won't cause any binding.

Could they make the print any smaller???

Note: The lower control arms in these kits do not have provisions for mounting a factory sway bar

This is why I avoid this place. They are real shady with the stuff
