The biggest impact the arms have by replacing them are the type of bushing material they use. OEM (Stock) use rubber. Rubber is great for reducing NVH and a comfy cushy ride but it also leads to a lot of slop like AMDan said.

Polyurethane bushings have long been used to reduce that bounciness but at the cost of increasing NVH and making things a bit rougher. To the performance enthusiast this is normally a minimal negative to what is otherwise a significant positive (better handling).

For better corning ability (and depending on your budget) you should really look at a Watts Link system.
