Back orders with Global West? Any other companies make these?

Through Summit I have the Global West Lower control arms on back order. These are the ones for coil over shocks that lower the car 1 1/4" even before adjusting. I already have the uppers. Anyone have any experience with Global West with back orders? Or have these same lower control arms on backorder? I ordered a month & a half ago & every few days they move the 'Shipping Date' out a couple more days. Wondering if I should wait or just get their lowers & use lowering springs? I've called them & they just say "They'll be done next week". I'm a few hours away from them so I asked if I could just drive there & buy them directly from them. "No, all of them are called for". Do any other companies make a similar product? Thank You! Bill

Just be patient and wait for the Global West arms. They are a quality product and will work with the uppers at intended..

Thank You SuperSport & Nova Thug! They came yesterday! So just need coil overs & I'm good to go! Deciding between QA1 & Viking. Any feedback on these? My builder prefers QA! but I've read good reviews on Viking. Bill

I've had both and both get the job done. Can't beat Viking for the money.
I rate companies by their customer service, Viking is as good as it gets.

I donít have any personal experience with either of these companies but I would go with what Global West uses and I believe they use Viking.
