PT/SRT VS Neon control arms, 56k good luck...

Post by BlackRoseRacing » Fri Jan 11, 2008 7:35 pm

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....

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 :)

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

couldnt the extra reenforcement but helpful for the extra tourqe the srt puts down?? and thicker front sway?? might not just asking I'm curious about this though since I was looking at srt's for my stage 2 srt swap dont wanna have susp. problems over a 45 control arm know what i mean but from this it wouldnt look like its a must have ....nice write up none the less.
