Benefit of Aluminum LCA's
I believe my rear LCA bushings are shot, as my rear suspension seems to have major deflection under torque. Unfortunately for my wallet, I read about the new Delrin bushings being made for the rear suspension on my car, and I am sold on them. They sound like exactly what I have been looking for.
I know you have to pay to play when it comes to mods, and cars in general. My problem, is that I am an all-out kind of guy; I do everything I can "while I am there" - and so not only do I plan to get the delrin LCA's, I am wondering if I should go a step further and get the aluminum mark VIII LCA's as opposed to stock thunderbird control arms.
My question is, how could saving 6lbs per control arm effect the rear suspension, other than lowering overall vehicle weight by such a miniscule amount? Would it effect launches at all? Overall, is there actually any real-world benefit to having a lighter lower rear control arm, to justify additional cost ($125)?
Thanks for any feedback.
All Glory to God!
