Clearance is the word.

If you need clearance for your coilovers then these are it. Lots of room. Easy to instal. Even make the steering better. Just be sure to pump some grease in to the ball joints. They don't have any in them.

Josh Owens

Love the gray color, easy to install, directions could be better but overall well built and good design.

Upper control arms

Great product needed something truly strong. But got stuck at fed ex facility due to storms defenetly buy other product.

Frank DiBenedetto
Pro Series Arms

I purchased these because one of my ball joints in the OEM control arms had play in it. These made an unbelievable difference in how the car feels driving over bumps. My Miata handles them significantly smoother than ever before and I was able to notice this difference even after previously installing the V8R frame rails. I highly recommend these!
