Upper control arm replacement

I am getting ready to order an adjustable upper control arm for my car. I replaced the LCA's with Steeda billet units but the wheel hop is still there. The tech at Steeda did tell me when I ordered the LCA's that it would help, but ultimately I would have to replace the upper as well.
Anyone done this ? How hard is it to replace the upper CA. I spoke to Sam Strano, and I am deciding between UMI and Steeda units. Anyone using either of them ?

Most preferably buy UPR or Maximum Motorsports for control arms. What kind of bushings did those Steedas come with?

I installed the UPR street adjustable last week. It wasn't hard at all. I removed the exhaust pipes for more room. Pull out bottom of back seat. 4 bolts and it comes right out. I set the UPR length close to stock and installed, then measured the pinion angle with two angles finders.

Oh yeah, you will need a large breaker bar for the bolt under the back seat. Factory torque is over 300 ft-lbs
