Default HPM Control arms upper and lower: Best combo?

Here's the story. I never had wheel hop until I installed the Summit uppers and lowers... they are non adjustable and are on the car now. lakewood 50/50 shocks new as well. With or without the quads installed... but better with the quads. No way will I drive with wheel hop you know.

I just picked up some HPM megabite jr lowersand HPM non-adjustable uppers.

Anywone have experience with notch upper/lower combinations?

Soon I will install the Megabitte jr lowers. What should I use for uppers to eliminate the wheel hop? Will the non-adjustable HPM uppers do the trick?

Nice looking car. I hear that the good ol cheap Ford Racing Uppers work just fine with a good lower such as Maximum Motorsports.

THanks.

I also have subframes and FMS B springs installed.

Siince I have the HPMs should I doan install upper and lower.

Ofcourse I did notice that the uppers rear end mounted bushings are starting to crack a little.

If you already have them you might as well try it and see. Those bushings can be a pain to replace from what I hear.
