    I have to replace the rear lower control arms on my 89 hatch. I am in the process of completing a 5 lug ek9 hub conversion, which uses stock arms but mine are completly worn out. through some research it seems that Skunk2 makes the best suspension for the 89 civic.
    1. Is this correct or is there a better option available and if so were?
    2. The best price I have found is $180 on ebay anyone know of a better buy?
    Thanks in advance.
