Features: Good all-around design that works equally well on the street, strip, or road course. Designed to be used with stock springs, lowering springs, or QA1 Pro Coil kit. These control arms offer less weight and increased strength over factory stamped steel design. Arms include low-deflection polyurethane bushings with zinc-plated steel inner sleeves. These bushings are fluted to better hold grease. They come pre-assembled with new ball joints, bumpstops, grease fittings, bushings, and inner sleeves.

Features: These arms are available in standard width, or narrowed 1.5-inch per side to allow extra tire clearance. A molded urethane spring seat is provided for the lower end of the coil spring­—great for noise reduction. They are also removable for conversion to coilovers or Airride. The upper ball joint has been moved back to allow caster settings that account for cars with a raked stance and using more positive caster settings for enhanced high-speed handling.

What sets your product apart?
We supply the bushings, ball joints, and shafts installed using top-quality components. The upper shafts have a 0.1875-inch offset built into them—an improvement pioneered by MOOG. Doing so allows you to change the length of the upper arm 0.375-inch to allow a larger “window” for your alignment expert to deal with. We’ve sold thousands of sets since 1991, so we know what works.

What sets your product apart?
You should notice better handling due to the improved geometry, especially at higher speeds. The end result will be a Camaro that drives nice and straight on the freeway and doesn’t follow ruts in the road, especially if you have power steering. Our arms include a warranty and come fully assembled and ready to run.
