Default Godspeed Upper Control Arms

Does anyone have these on their car and does anyone know if Godspeed makes good parts or should I just go with Megan UCA, my coilovers are coming in this week and I want to get UCAs to correct my camber when I do alignment and I want to install everything at once.

They look nice. What I have found out is that many of these parts are all made in China and rebranded. So these may be the same as the Megan ones but I like the color better. Lol

I'm not positive but I'll bet they are. That's why I went with the Figs mega arms and toe arms.

Wish I could see a side-by-side between the Megan and the Godspeed ones. Would love to check out the welds on each.

They look exactly the same as the Megans...I think Sffd103 is correct, they are just re-branded and a different color. Not a bad price either...and 3 years of warranty.

I thought Megan was made in Taiwan? I'm not 100% sure though.

So @mikephan2is or Mike Phan with the widebody aimgain 2IS was selling these and he said it works the same way as Megan's but is just branded differently. You're paying for the name. What's another way to achieve more camber than Megan/Godspeed without dropping tons on Japanese branded ones.. $1000+ for front camber is not worth it.

I paid around $300 for the Megan UCAs and these listed are a little over $200...not sure where you are getting $1k from, and these provide much more camber up front than the SPC ball joints.

I think he is talking about the JDM ones that someone on here has, I believe he said he got them a little over $1k from Japan.
