Questions about getting an upper control arm
 
My tax return is going to savings for a house..but I'm taking a few hundred out to buy an upper control arm to get rid of my hop.

I'm stock height and probably will be for a few years.
Is there any point in getting an adjustable one or not?

I don't plan on drag racing it. Maybe a few times and some fun on the street
Should I buy the upper mount also, or not spend the money?

I'm going to go with the poly bushing because it's my dd.

Thanks for any advice.

For DD, consider Roush upper. Noise free, effective. Non adjustable but, does the work well on stock or mildly lowered cars.

For stock height, you're okay with a fixed length UCA. I used a fixed length UCA on a 1.5" drop for years with no issue. Here's what I used, and it works well.

While you would be fine with a fixed length upper, if at anytime, whether it is years from now or not you plan on changing the ride height of the car or the driveshaft, prepare of it ahead of time and put an adjustable upper in there.
