Advanced Factors Heavy Duty lower front arms

I'm installing in few days the AF MEYLE HEAVY DUTY FRONT LOWER ARMS.



So I need feedback from those who installed these arms on drivability, reactions on steering wheel, how hard on offroad, loss of comfort, strange vibrations, ..........

Thank you mates

They’re not that far away from genuine arms, maybe just not as smooth but they feel good in the corners and definitely tightened the whole front end up. Just a slight firmer ride over normal roads.

You won’t believe how bad the old ones were when you change them. It transforms the car.

Turns in far sharper just feels so much better when changing direction quickly. And just the general ride is far improved.

When I had them done I just thought it would feel the same and my wallet would just be a lot lighter but it was like driving a new car!! I have a MY10 with 80,000 miles so not really that old before the change.
It was silky smooth, no noise over bumps, didn't notice much difference on handling as I don't throw the car around much but really worth doing Thumbs Up
