    PROS AND CONS
    I AM CONTEMPLATING RETURNING MY CAR TO STOCK LENGTH REINFORCED TRAILING ARMS OR OPTING FOR PRO HOPPER ADJUSTABLE UPPER TRAILING ARMS.

    THE CURRENT SET I HAVE IS WAY TOO LONG......1.5" EXTENSION. CAN'T DRIVE THE CAR LOW.

    BESIDES THE OBVIOUS ADJUSTABLE BENEFIT TO THE ADJUSTABLE TRAILING ARMS, WHAT IS THE DOWN SIDE? I'VE HEARD THEY GET LOOSE EVERY FEW MONTHS.

    I've never had any problems with the adjustables. Just get the locking nut tight after they are adjusted correctly and you should be good to go.

    I like the look of molded ones too.....but another advantage of the adjustables is they will swivel during 3 wheel and side to side which helps both types of movements. Keeps your bushings from getting ate up fast too.

    Pros:

    #1 Most are easy to adjust, (the models that are threaded to spread when the center peice is turned)

    #2 lots of adjustablility




    Cons:

    #1 they wont let the rear pivot much without loosening the jamb nuts and pivoting on the threads. (plain poly bushings and no flex in the tubing)



    #2 the ones hydro companies sell are ugly with the adjuster in the middle. (they look alot more official and less 'bolt-in-ish' with a single-way adjuster on one end.)

    Crazy that people dont like the look of adjustables. I would buy them more for the look than the functionality of it. I dont think a molded arm could ever look this good.

    Not even close... Those body mounts are more 50's style.. The front crossmember and A-arms do look 80's-GM.. My guess is 53' Chevy with a stepnotch and subframe..

    I prefer the adjustables in chrome, with sleeves
