I have them on my MY97.

I have no complaints, but it's only been about six months and 3000 miles or less on the suspension.

It's a little too early to tell if they'll last as long as far more expensive ones from Tarrett engineering, for example.

They do the job of correcting the toe-in issue when you lower your car though.

Thanks for your response, that's exactly what I need them for
Q: Did you immediately install the toe arms after you lowered your car or later?

Reason why I am asking is that since I lowered the car I am "eating" rear tires.
Yes I know the Box isn't exactly easy on the rears, but I had the car for 2+ years before I lowered it, so I know how fast I need new tires.
Since I lowered the car I'd guess that I go twice as fast through my rears and I kind-a hope that fixing the toe-in will put me back to normal wear.

I had them installed with the Ksport Kontrol coilovers, the control arms, the wheel bearings, the trailing control arms, and the list goes on even further but I've forgotten what else I replaced in one giant suspension whack.

I was tired of replacing pieces one by one as they started to creak and squeak and clunk.

Of course, my drop links are probably cracked already because I bought inferior quality ones off eBay.

I'm running them as well, but I'm only at maybe 5000 miles on them but they seem to be holding up just fine. They certainly do their job during an alignment.
