I've had lowers that were but that was in my days of hopping. Now it's just up and down low and slow. So do I really have to reinforce them?

i would cause the spring like to blow out of the bottom if your not gonna hope at all i think you might be OK for a little bit but eventually they'll start popping threw

no, u dont need to reinforce them. b/c they will not see tha force that they do when hopping. ;)

true, but you forget how the lowers have a factory bend in them near the mount....its well advised to plate the bottoms so that they are boxed in just like a trailing arm....otherwise even though ur not hopping with them thats still more pressure than the A arm would normally have...youre pump will put out over 1000 psi....i would say its best to plate them now before u need to go and get another set

REGAURDLESS IF YOU DONT HOP UR CAR WHEN U ROLL WITH FLUID IN THE CYLINDERS YOU ARE PUTTING TENSION ON THE LOWER A ARM ,, AVOID THE HEADACHE ;)
