Mustang II Upper Control Arms

Anyone see the inexpensive tubular Mustang II upper control arms in the magaizines and now on Ebay? They sell a pair for about $129.

I called (Rodparts Warehouse) on them and they say they are made in the USA by Gear Heads.

Does this seem like it is too good to be true? Most places would start at $199.00.

What do you guys think? Have you heard of the company? Is it too cheap to be good?

Tim

They come with the ball joints, bushings and they say they are made in the USA. They look ready to bolt on.

Anyone have any experience with these parts yet????

I called a company on ebay. They said they were made by gearheads overseaa.

I really want to redo the upper control arms but don't want a problem on the road.

Anyone ever see these parts?

If they are offshore I would view them with suspicion. You need quality inspected welds on these dudes.

Just got done talking to Speedway. It appears both their stock and tubular arms are imported also.

Really not sure what to buy. I though the stock style from speedway was my backup plan. But if it too is imported and more expensive than the tubular...
