    Doing a RC 4”spindle lifts and saw that the control arms are shot. Was going to just replace the bushings but I don’t have all the tools needed and now it’s going to be a pain taking them out, so rather just replace them..... Anybody know of some good tubular replacements? I’ve read that some have issues with the spindle lift and don’t get enough camber with stock arms .

    Also going to just replace the coil springs. Was thinking of going with the Acdelco replacements. Any advice on different springs ?

    Just my input. I've got the rc 4 lift. Stock new ac delco arms upper and lower. Got some alignments. No issues. Springs I kept my stock old ones. Just got new ac delco insulators so dont forget that. My wheels are oem stock steels so incase you get new wheels certain 15s will work . Otherwise may need bigger wheels.

    I have been looking for the AC Delco arms but don’t seem to find them anywhere. Not even AutoZone had them.
