love them.

why are the OEM LCAs such an odd shape when all that's really needed is a triangle? Does the odd shape of the OEMs handle road hazards and bumps better than the custom LCA shape?

What is the estimated weight savings per side? Any plan for the knuckle?

It has alot to do with the front LCA bushing and how the car handles
Under braking and accel from the factory. Factory arm were designed with comfort and safety in mind and not performance.

I haven't weighed it but my guess is a good 20lb each side. I have a modified factory knuckle that is compatible with the replace spherical ball joint. Stock knuckles don't work. I'll put pictures up soon.

These are all Honda Challenge/world challenge parts. I also have a modified subframe where all the mounting points are solid. A modified steering rack with CNC spacers and solid bushing that reduces bump steer. All of this to improve suspension geometry
