Found a pic of Pro Arm front ef forks and rear Lca's.
The front forks are shorter allowing you to lower your ride 1.5" .
The rear LCa's are modified adjustable to allow 1.5" drop.
Supposedly drop your car 1.5 inches and retain the stock ride.

This is without even having any lowering springs or coilovers on the car.

Hmm interesting. Never heard of them. Sounds like a good alternative to lowering springs.

According to the HT thread, "You can drop your car on the pro arms and still keep the ride of stock suspension if you'd like. they were made by suspension techniques and were discontinued from what i remember. They are originally metallic silver with red bushings. The disadvantage is no rear sway bar holes".

With that said, finding another set out there will be next to impossible since they have prob been out of production for quite a few years.

So theoretically, with this setup of dropping the stock ride height 1.5", would you still need a camber kit?

The rear arms look to solve any camber issues by being adjustable near the unibody mount. With the front forks, the front upper arms should stay in the stock location, but the front LCA will still come up, pushing the bottom of the front wheels out slightly. The front camber issues would then be less than if you had 1.5" lowering springs, in which case I doubt you would need a camber kit.

What do you mean by stock location? The steering knuckle goes untouched with those forks, so raising the LCA will also raise the UCA. They're unequal length arms, so I agree that you will get some negative camber, but it shouldn't be any different than with lowering springs. The big difference I see here is that using the forks won't sacrifice any shock absorber travel the way you do with lowering springs. On the other hand, good luck finding stiffer springs with the stock ride height.

You get the same shock travel as you would with stock springs, but the car gets lowered 1.5". If you used lowering springs instead, you would lose 1.5" of shock travel.
In both instances the shock/spring/fork assembly ends up shorter... It's just a matter of where the length comes from.

Sorry to bump an old thread. But I guess it's better than making a new one. haha

I wasn't talking about the link.. but heres another one. This one is a little newer..

According to that link, they were discontinued long ago because they weren't very good.

There was a thread on here somewhat recently about a similar product that was a set of rear trailing arms that claimed to lower the car without the need for lowering springs.
