I've decided to replace my lower arms instead of restoring my originals with jack tabs.  Has anyone used these new Drake arms yet?  Anyone know if these are Made in USA or not?  Thanks.

I assure you that  the  new lower A arms are not made in the U.S.A.. If they were, they would be bragging about it, imho.
They are most likely Asian made to Drake's specifications. As in introductory offer, I am selling these with a $10  discount from Drake's $65 list price.  That comes to just $110 a pair. Grin
 Reasonable priced drop shipping available also.  Plus tax where applicable.

Thanks Dave.  I think I will go with the Moog since they are USA.

Heres the Drake ones, they look good.
I guess they could be U.S.A., I didn't see any ''made in china'' stickers. Grin
I'll find out for you.

What's that thing with the Shelby stripe on it.  Some sort of early prototype Shelby Woody?

the moog c-arms are nothing like original 68/69 arms pt K-8123. they are nice arms, think they are now made in canada or down south mehico way.

if you are looking for original look and style scott drake is VERY close. if you want a stronger c-arm and dont care about looks moog .

Thanks for asking, Scott.
It was back in the early eighties when I hung the old formica countertop off the front of  this antique counter that was already in the buiding. The stripe reads Mustang.
 I can remember putting the same stripe only dark blue on my first Mustang back in 1974.

As I suspected. 

Everything looks better with stripes.

I wonder if it would perform better with side exiting exhaust?  Hysterical
