    Default New factory style (Clevite) bushing control arms.

    The newest release we are working on is the factory style injection mounded rubber joints for our indestructible control arms

    These bushings should last for years and the ride quality should be second to none.

    These arms do not currently have a bend in the arm because the offset of the front bushing shell should clear the brackets during flex.

    The bushing inserts are pressed into a 2.75x.250 DOM shell that can take all the abuse you can throw at it. From my research I cannot find anyone that uses anything thicker than .120 wall tubing for these style bushings and that is too thin to smack a rock.

    These will be available on our site soon. The cost of materials and labor is higher than poly so the cost will naturally be higher. We will offer these in several configurations later on but we feel that this may be the end all be all for a great riding super strong adjustable lower control arm for the on and off road market.

    Here is an image of the bushings next ot the massive 2.75".250 wall shells



    Here is a picture of the final product:



    I will be running a limited discount on a few sets of these for folks to try out.
    If you are interested PM me.
    The retail on these bad boys will be around 249.00 a pair shipped.

    Actually I might be more interested in the cans. I currently have a three link with some large tough bushings on DOM in that work well, but transmit a few vibes.

    I will sell them as a kit with the shells and the bushings. That 2.75x.250 has become super rare... I had to have my 40' made from the mill.... it carries a hefty price tag. It also takes one hell of a press to install them. If you think you are up to it let me know

    the rubber inserts are 10.75 each and the shells are 14.25 each so its about 25.00 a joint.

    OK Andy, thanks. I won't be doing any suspension stuff for awhile, but I will at some point when I link the rear.

    Was planning the install today.....man, those factory upper arms look like aluminum cans compared to Andy's.

    Guess I have to order the upper one's too.

    As mentioned above, the new lowers make the factory uppers look really pathetic.

    So if I replace the uppers, should I go with poly, or johnny joint?

    I plan on replacing my fixed RE uppers soon as well . When I do, I was planning on doing johnny at the drop brackets and clevite at the axle.
