What says “performance” more than a set of tubular control arms! After all of the time and effort expended on your ride, you definitely can’t let your stamped oem control arms detract from all that work. Finish your suspension off with these new tubular control arm systems from Ridetech. Built with all of the care and experience you have come to expect from us, these tubular control arms are a precision engineered solution for CoolRide installation. When you combine the performance benefits with the elegant design of these arms, there is no question…. You want these.
Development – StrongArms™ are developed by Ridetech® in Jasper, Indiana on an actual running, driving vehicle. This allows us to properly address ALL fitment and performance issues. It also allows us to document an installation, demonstrate the installation to our sales techs and dealers, and allows ongoing evaluation of the performance of the StrongArms™
Design – We think the best way to design any component is to keep it simple. That is why Strong Arms™ are designed with as few components as possible. They are manufactured in house on our 4 axis tubing bender that allows precise, repeatable bends that no other machine can achieve. We can create elegant tubing bends that would otherwise require several separate welded components. The perimeter of the StrongArm is contoured to allow maximum wheel clearance and turning radius. A steel plate provides a strong attachment for the CoolRide air spring and a dedicated shock tab is welded to the rear leg of the arm.
Components – Powder coated in a satin black finish and completely assembled with ball joints, bushings and cross shafts. To reduce deflection and stiction from the suspension movement Injection Molded Delrin Bushings are used, which are also impregnated with Teflon to eliminate the need for lubrication.
Geometry – Properly designed control arms will add more positive caster (without a pile of shims) and will position the wheel in the wheel opening for maximum clearance. Ball joint angles are repositioned to prevent binding.
