When a powerful vehicle with a solid rear axle is under heavy throttle, axles can shift out of alignment because of weak OEM trailing arms that are supposed to keep it locked in place – causing excess strain and wear of U-joints and related seals. Hotchkis offers replacement upper trailing arms that prevent those problems by rigidly keeping axles affixed in position. Each arm is built with a higher grade of steel than OEM-spec trailing arms, increasing stiffness so that the driver truly benefits from the vehicle control gained by proper suspension geometry, alignment, and tire grip. One-piece steel construction provides the most even, consistent level of bonding strength on all areas – eliminating inconsistencies which cause weak points, metal fatigue, or even failure.

An outer finish of durable powder coat is applied to ensure peeling, discoloration, and deterioration are eliminated while long-term corrosion protection is ensured. Should you choose to remove or adjust these components at a future point for any reason, stainless steel hardware will make it easy because there won’t be a need to deal with seized and rusted nuts or bolts. Polyurethane bushings that are also included provide superior cushioning to prevent harsh vibrations being transferred to the passenger area, and their resilient nature won’t compromise your vehicle’s handling by squishing flat the way rubber will. Polyurethane also offers the ability to perform extremely well under extreme temperatures and resist collapsing, deforming, or crumbling after being exposed to road grime, salt, and leaking oils.

Founded in Santa Fe Springs, California in the late 1960s during the height of the original muscle car boom, Hotchkis Sport Suspension got its start building products that blessed GM, Mopar, and Ford performance cars with new abilities to corner and handle with stability at racetrack speeds. As the company’s reputation for building quality products grew, Hotchkis components soon found their way onto all kinds of vehicles that were not made to go fast in any way, shape, or form. It didn’t take long before station wagons, convertibles, and pickup trucks were wheeling around tracks all over southern California with the tenacity of sports cars. After decades of developing suspension-enhancing products that have led to victories in championship racing events, slalom track competitions, and street challenges, Hotchkis has refined and perfected their manufacturing techniques to become the internationally respected company they are today. In 2013, Hotchkis opened a second facility in North Carolina which allows them to perform R&D on multiple platforms simultaneously, fabricate products for a greater number of racing applications, and offer suspension installation services. CARiD is proud to offer the best values you’ll find on a full range of Hotchkis sport coil springs that lower your vehicle’s center of gravity to add resposiveness, tubular sway bars that optimize chassis balance, control, and stability, rear suspension packages that dramatically improve traction during launch and cornering, and much more.
