I've been looking at replacing the rear upper and lower trailing arms in my car with Hotchkis components. I have a 91 LX 5.0 convertible and don't plan on sending more than about 300 HP to the rear wheels when I'm finished with the mods I have planned.

My question is this, are the Hotchkis parts worth the cost given the way I'm going to use the car or should I just go with OEM style components?

Anything is better then the stock or OEM control arms. Personally I like Maximum Motorsports I got a set of MM LCAs at a bargain price on ebay. One thing to do though if you are gonna race it or beat on it at all it to put in some torque box reinforcements or at least have the torque boxes welded up. If you do a search there was a thread that showed exactly which seams needed to be welded.
