Need some good advice

So i got my wheels on a couple weeks ago and noticed that i need to replace both upper and lower control arms.

My question is what brand is everyone using for the arms and where is the best place to buy them from?

I plan on keeping my bird so i don't mind paying extra for good quality, but i don't wanna overpay just to get a brand name.

Im thinking about the lifetime warranty MOOGs but not sure if there is a better option out there.


ANY advice would be greatly appreciated!

Oh yeah and i have a 97 bird sport.
Thanks guys.

Moog or TRW. You can't go wrong with Moog and TRW is the OEM for the MN12.

Shop around for the best prices.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)

Well ended up getting the moogs off of amazon.
They were the same price as rockauto but offered free shipping!
