Our Tubular Control Arms are a direct replacement for MK1 Factory Control Arms (factory mounting location and factory length) and save weight, weighing only 2.25kg each.
Our tubular control arms decrease joint play and add stiffness to improve steering response, overall handling and tire contact during cornering and hard acceleration.
The heim version of our control arms are best suited to the performance enthusiast due to the increase in stiffness and rigidity of the joint. The heim joints greatly aid performance but will also have increased road feedback and noise, typical for heim joints. For a more driver friendly application, check out our Polyurethane (Poly) version.
This listing is for the pair of control arms (left & right).

These arms provide 4" of suspension articulation which is more than enough on a static car, but we do recommend our Poly Tubular Control Arms for bagged vehicles or vehicles requiring increased suspension travel. They are best used in static applications and are suitable for lowered vehicles.
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.
