I know some of you have questioned it, Whats the difference between a neon control arm and an SRT control arm...other than $30 not much....

^^^
On top the neon control arm and below the PT/SRT



^^^
To the left, the PT/SRT and to the right the neon


^^^
To the right the neon, to the left PT/SRT...the difference, more reinforcement around the area where the sway bar link bolts to....




^^^
Neon



^^^
PT/SRT

So those of you thinking you need the SRT lower control arms, there really is no need, save the $30 per arm for other upgrades Smile

That reinforcement could be a downfall as it will hold moisture and possibly rust out faster.

so are all years the same also?

im thinking of picking up some used LCA's and putting in new ball joints and prothane bushings so i can just drop my LCA's out and put the new ones in, without having to do all the work on the current ones avoiding any potential problems and time constraints....... just have to find the cheapest LCA's
