Tubular toe control arms
#665614 - 07/16/04 04:16 PM

We have just finished the first prototype set of tubular toe control arms. They will be offered in 2 styles-1 with polyurethane bushings at each end and 1 with an adjustable spherical rod end at the knuckle. They are fabricated from high strength, seamless tube, TIG welded and weigh 1/3 less than the stock arms.

We will be track testing them next weekend. Pricing has yet to be set. The poly bushings are easily replaceable (unlike the stock arms). They will not twist or bend like the trouble prone stock stamped pieces.

Please post if you're interested so we can establish quantities & prices before doing our first production run. Digipics shortly.

Yes, we're still in biz. Been trying to refocus on a limited number of products so there was some down time within the last year or so. It didn't help that my partners SVT was written off either.

The toe control arms will take 2 to 4 weeks to run off depending on how many orders and which style go. There's more labour/machining in the double poly bushed type. Forgot to mention that they're greasable with a grease fitting at each bushing.

They're also easily installed, unlike the forward rear control arms which require dropping the complete subframe to access the inner mounting nut/bolt assembly. A rear alignment IS suggested after installation.

For those who'd like more info.... What can I provide/tell you? Is there a preference whether they have a spherical rod end or polyurethane at both ends? Obviously, the rod end type would be more $$$. My guess is that the double poly style will allow less twist than the rod end ones.

Let me know.
