Default Control Arms For 71 Firebird Pro Touring

In the market to replace my stock control arms with some aftermarket performance control arms (upper and lower) for my 71 Firebird. The car has a Hotchkis TVS setup now. I will be using it for Pro Touring/casual driving. Anyone out there with experience on this with recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Why don't you try and reach out to this guy who has a 71 build going on, he'll probably be able to help out with some info or at the very least make some suggestions.

Do you have a set that is intended for Pro Touring? How do they compare to the other leading brands such as DSE, Hotchkis and so on?

They have Geometry Improvements like the other Brands. We aim our Pricing towards the Enthusiast with a Budget ( doesn't everyone). Made in the USA about 40 yards from where I'm sitting

Default Bmr ftw!

I've have had the full BMR suspension on my car for nearly 10 years and absolutely LOVE IT!! Great ride for cruising and corner carving!

Tubular uppers and lowers with their sway bar up front with their Torque arm with Watts-link in the rear!

Full 3" exhaust out the back...

That is definitely a sweet ride TY!! Iím digging that rear end setup! I canít tell if that is a 9Ē rear end or 12 bolt. I have a complete Hotchkis setup now....considering ditching the leaf springs and doing a four link or something like what you have.
