what's the benifits of swaping suspensions?

HI there, sorry if that wasn't clear. What i mean is why do people swap out their stock control arms, etc for say intergra or what not front ends? Is there some advantage to doing this?

The benifits usually tend to be a more rigid/stiff suspension setup..which is what you want for track use , aswell as the bling factor

also some lower control don t have sway bar endlink hole so a swap of some sort is necessary. Also some front UCA have camber adjustment for the lowered cars.

Front camber is usually done from upper A arm, not sure if front LCA can do camber adjustment.

As for the purpose, some control arms are stamped steel, more rigid and also offers sway bar mounting location.
