Performance Control Arms

Tubular, lightened, powder coated

At their most basic, control arms locate the wheels in relation to the body and allow them to move within a designed range in response to the road and the suspension. Control arms may pivot on bushings at both ends, which are typical of rear suspension control arms, or they may have a ball joint at one end, which enables pivoting and turning, as with a front suspension.

Control Arms

Control arms can be damaged in collisions, and in many cases it may be more cost effective and less time consuming to replace the entire arm when pivot bushings or ball joints wear out. Arnott control arms come complete and ready to bolt on for many popular air suspension equipped cars. Omix-ADA makes replacement control arms for most popular late model Jeeps. These control arms come complete with the bushings installed and ready to bolt on.

High performance driving requires strong, lightweight components that are more rigid than stock. Box section or tubular control arms with stiffer urethane bushings, from companies like BBK Performance, Granatelli Motor Sports, Hotchkis and Lakewood, are far superior to the stamped steel units with rubber bushings that are standard equipment on most cars. These performance replacements make handling more precise, improve traction and eliminate wheel hop. Their precise welds and powder coated finish also make them look as good as they perform.

Sometimes additional adjustability may be needed in the suspension, to correct a handling deficiency, allow different wheel alignment settings, or allow the use of larger wheels and tires. Manufacturers like Competition Engineering, Eibach and Hotchkis make control arms with such features. If you want to adjust ride height or get the alignment right on a lowered car, Hotchkis may have the control arm you’re looking for. Competition Engineering has adjustable rear upper control arm kits to improve traction, and Eibach makes performance control arms that allow wider wheel and tire combinations.

No suspension system is more specialized these days than the one on a lifted 4WD truck. Many parts, including control arms, have to be completely re-engineered to increase strength, while maintaining ride quality, handling and wheel alignment with the truck in the raised position. Manufacturers like Fabtech, Ready Lift, Skyjacker, Superlift and Tuff Country make control arms that are stronger and better looking than stock, and include the adjustability to maintain wheel alignment with taller wheels and tires.

The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most...
Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.

Great product. Be sure to read the excellent instructions as they are extremely helpful. I used a wood clamp and a piece of wood to drive the smaller bushings into the arm. Also had to shorten the metal bushing, but the instructions made that clear.
