Our Tubular Control Arms are a direct replacement for MK4 Golf/Jetta and Beetle Factory Control Arms (factory mounting location, factory length and utilizes the factory sway bar).
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 polyurethane version of our control arms are perfect for increasing stiffness and handling, while still maintaining driver comfort. The polyurethane bushings isolate the vibration, produce a smooth ride and are quiet.
The Poly arms are best suited for static applications, non-lowered vehicles as well as lowered vehicles where the control arm angle does not exceed +2 degrees at rest. They are not suitable for vehicles with bags, ultra low vehicles, or lowered vehicles where the control arm angle exceeds +2 degrees at rest.
For applications where the Poly arms aren't suitable, see our Tubular Control Arms with Heim ends (28-4110).

The poly arms offer similar suspension articulation as factory control arms and are best suited on static vehicles. They are suitable for non-lowered, and lowered applications where the control arm angle does not exceed +2 degrees at rest.
For control arms that exceed the +2 degree angle, ultra low applications or cars with bags; our Heim Joint version must be used (SKU 28-4110). The Heim version has improved articulation and won't cause binding on lowered applications, or extremes of suspension height (bags).
In order to be covered by our warranty, you must chose the control arm that is suited for your application. Please reach out to our Customer Service if you need help deciding which set is applicable for your application.
