I have to change my A-arms for my 64 impala. I have not installed my hydralics yet "but its coming soon". Instead of buying the regular A-amrs will the tubular ones work for me? Will they stand the hydralics weight/pressure?

the tubular arms would be more useful on a air bag suspension. not designed for hydraulic use, unless they were thick walled chrome molly arms but at that rate youd probably spend more than u though u would for a set lol...

if you think the uppers dont get any stress than ask yourself as to why people bend un-reinforced A arms all the time

only air bags i see taking a beating are ones running large compressors with huge tanks. if its just a simple bag setup its now running the kind of pressure hydraulics do. think about when u install a coil and cylinder in the front end. you have to jack up the lower A arm to meet the upper to bolt the ball joint in place. that there is already stress on the balljoint and arm. on air bag setups they usually lay frame in front. so you dont haev to jack up a lower a arm to meet the upper...u can just pick it up and put it in place...
