Control Arm Upper & Lower Package
For years we’ve all been driving our muscle cars the way they were designed, with lots of power and usually in a straight line. In the middle of the prime of the Pro Street movement in the 1990’s a few guys were pushing their cars towards better handling and the Pro Touring segment was born. Now the number of Pro Touring builds has increased exponentially over the last decade, why wouldn’t it when you find your car can move quick in a straight line and handle the curves at the end of the road. We say hoorah to that!
The first step to upgrading your suspension is changing the factory geometry to be more friendly to blasting curves. Our tubular control arms do just that, ball joint pivot points have been relocated to increase caster, promote more stability at speed, and aid in increasing camber gain. But those aren’t the only benefits, read on for all the features of these great control arms.
CAD designed tubular Control Arms are constructed from CNC mandrel bent DOM tubing. Uppers are constructed of 1.25″ diameter, .120 wall while lowers are 1.50″ diameter, .156 wall tubing. All plate components are laser cut and CNC formed for exact tolerances, TIG welded to the tubing, and then the assemblies are powder coated gloss black.
The upper arms are assembled with strong and corrosion free 304 stainless steel cross shafts that feature a special offset machining process. This allows two different base camber settings during alignment. Both upper and lowers receive non wearing greasable Delrin bushings, urethane bump stops, and grade 8 hardware. Performance ball joints featuring forged housings, full spherical pins and CV style dust boots are then installed and custom free moving spherical bearing mount sway bar end links wrap up the lower arms. For this price you can’t find a better quality tubular control arm.
