Our Tubular Control Arms are a direct replacement for MK3 ABA Golf/Jetta Factory Control Arms (factory mounting location, factory length and utilizes the factory sway bar) and are lighter than factory control arms.
Our tubular control arms decrease joint play and add stiffness to improve steering response, overall handling and tire contact during cornering and hard acceleration.
Our Heim Tubular Control Arms are best suited to the performance enthusiast. You will have the most performance gain with the heim, due to the stiffness and rigidity of the mount but will also have increased road feedback and noise which is typical for heim joints. Best for race applications or vehicles that aren’t driven in winter road conditions. The heim arms also eliminate the issue of the rear bushing popping out on lowered vehicles.
This listing is for the pair of control arms (left & right).

The heim arms provide increased suspension articulation and are recommended in static or dynamic applications. They are suitable for lowered and ultra low application and also are a better choice when maximum articulation is a must.
Although the control arms have adjustment for alignment purposes, camber should always be added by camber plates or adjustable strut tops, not from the control arm. The arms are designed to have 50% of the heim joint threads inside the control arm during use.
To preserve the life of your heim joints and control arms, keep them dust/debris free and dry. Spray off control arms periodically during use, and more frequently if driving in wet or dusty conditions. Winter road conditions are not recommended and will reduce the life of your heim joints and control arms. If driving in these conditions, frequent cleaning is a must.
Ensure the Jam nut remains tight during use, check periodically. If driven more frequently or roads are excessively bumpy, check more regularly and second jam nut can be added for security.
