Well so far for my suspension setup I've got:
Steeda G-trac Stage 1 (springs, c/c plates, adj. rear swaybar, and strut tower brace)
Steeda offset rack bushings
Steeda subframe connectors
Steeda UCA's (not yet installed)
Steeda G-trac bar
and Tokico shocks/struts

My question is this, I want to go ahead and hopefully buy some Steeda LCA's simply because I want to complete the G-trac suspension but I was wondering if anyone knew of a price better than $219? Also I have always thought that I should stick with one manufacturer's products b/c I'm sure they're made to work better in unison with each other, is there any validity to this? I'm not even sure if for the money there are better LCA's out there for the money.

Thanks for the input.

Keep in mind that Steeda offers an SCMC member discount on their products. You could also check with Steeda dealers, sometimes they offer discounts.

After considering the Steeda lower control arms, I eventually decided to use the Ford Racing lower control arms (which I believe are Global West). They have spherical front bushings which eliminates any binding. The car maintains fairly good ride characteristics on the street and is a capable open-track car. Other suspension bits are Ford Racing "C" springs, Tokiko Illumina struts and shocks, and Steeda caster/camber plates.
