Got my upper and lower control arms

I went to the NMRA finals in Bowling Green KY. Saturday and stopped by the UPR truck. Got the adjustable upper and tubular lowers, hopefully they will be on by this afternoon. It was a great event lots of awsome cars there. I will try to gets some pics on here later.

Congrats on the new parts. Make sure you lube the sleves up before you install them with the proper greas and locktite on the bolts.

And pic is a good thing if you want to keep Ronda off you back.:hihi:

Yeah it was a great event! It's kind of funny I bought a set of Metco billet lower control arms for my GT500 while I was there, I didn't even know Metco made LCA's!!

Hey did you happen to see us blow the heads off our SS0 car against Dwayne James?? We won the round......But we were done!

You know it's bad when the driver states "I think it was worse this time.......there was more fire then normal!"

There on haven't had time to test drive yet gotta get cleaned up before I get in it. Had a little trouble with the upper but the lowers were no problem. It was a little tight under there since I only had a jack and jack stands but I think it will be worth it.

I saw one at the starting line, it made a very loud pop and they just pushed it back out of the way. I saw the Metco truck after I had already bought mine at the UPR truck.

Nope we blew up our SSO car. I did see the guy with the shelby (the black one).
