R32 fuca

Anyone running GKTECH's front upper control arms? One of the shitty aftermarket ones the previous owner installed let go on me pulling into the garage so I decided to make an impulse buy to get my car back on the road, just trying to find a review for them.

Seems like the aftermarket for FUCA is limited compared to the rest of the suspension.

Just got my gktech fuca in today, could of used a third hand installing, each control arm has about 7 pieces to keep lined up, getting the angle right is a bit tricky since you have two arms to adjust. Installed one side to find out I was about a 1/8 of an inch shy on one arms, second side went in like a glove once i had the first one figured out. Seems like a solid design and it's pretty beefy, no more creeks or noises coming from the front end now. Took it out for a spin to make sure everything was good, handles 100x better than it did before. Happy with the purchase, would buy again.

I thought about those, but saw gktech had something different, so far so good with them, I drive 400 miles a week haven't had one issue.
