Default rear lower control arms with spherical end - only option is maximum motorsports?

I definitely need a set of rear lower control arms - the rear end hops about over bumps, and shifts side-side way too much for my liking. I cannot get on the throttle over rough pavement as the car loses traction easily. I am assuming rear lower control arms would help me?

Anyways, my understanding is I should be getting rear lower control arms with at least one spherical bushing. Is my only option maximum motorsports? Just trying to see what options I have.

Thanks

Do you guys have non adjustable ones with one side poly, the other side spherical?

The UPR ones are adjustable with a plate for an OEM located sway bar. There is a poly end at the axle side, where the spherical is on the TB side (Jazzer's preferred method for orientation of bushings):

What are your thoughts on adjustable vs non-adjustable? I thought I read not to go with adjustables but could have read incorrectly.

I think you did, as the adjustability cannot hurt you. Now, it is not likely you will need it, but comes in handy if you begin running a very large diameter wheel, like a 28" and need to sneak a little movement to avoid rubbing.

No, we don't have a solid arm with a spherical at one end. Many people will tell you that you don't "need" an adjustable arm, but there's certainly no drawback to an adjustable arm. These Pro Street arms Jazzer and I showed you are a truly great setup for a dual purpose (street/track) car.
