Megan Racing Rear Lower Control Arms

im thinking of buying some lower control arms for my car.... im getting tokico illumina shocks and h&r sport springs put on my car soon so i fiqured i might aswell get these put in since the installer is gonna be down there anyways..... plus removing the stock shocks from the lca is a ***** and just incase the bushings and what not get ****ed i won't have to worry about it...

but the questions i have are..

does anyone have the Megan Racing Rear Lower Control Arms??? and if so or if not what do you have to say about them??

also what is the benifit of aftermarket lcas besides them being lighter then stock??

i've read they fix camber..... is this true?? and how does that work??

thanx for the help guys

They fix negative camber on some cars because on some cars they're shorter than stock pulling the bottom of the wheel in, not so on civics, same length same camber problem if you had one previously. I like them more than the omnis only for the reason that the bushings are the same as oem so if one goes it's not a problem, omni aren't oem unless they changed them. Teknotik sells the megans at a reasonable price. Benefits, none really other than they look nice and since you drive an eg there's one more benefit being that they have the holes to mount a rear swaybar.

i would not trust any kind of bushings except for oem and polyurethane bushings. when a lot of people experience problems with the bushings in their lcas do you not stay away from them?
