Control arm

So I almost have my 9" ready to install into my 87 monte SS, question is now what control arms I want. This car is 50% track and only a weekend driver. Looking for traction. Do I want adjustable uppers and fixed lowers? Fully adjustable? Tubular? Boxed? Any suggestions help! Ty

Adjustable Uppers with RotoJoint bearing ends for articulation, prevents binding.
Part #3037 >> http://www.umiperformance.com/catalo...&cPath=8_60_71

Lowers with Poly/Roto or Roto/Roto Joint.
http://www.umiperformance.com/catalo...&cPath=8_60_70

They may sell them in Upper/Lower Kits but, I don't see them listed.

Don't use the Control Arms with spherical rod ends unless it's a Track only car. = Vibration & Noise.

What brand 9" do you have?
