Control Arms! Look what I found!

This company makes "4 link bars" for like s-10's/lowriders. these are exactly what our control arms are! Im just gunna copy and paste their description, but holy crap $75 with free replacement! for an adjustable 1.5" OD x .25"?

We build these custom 4-Link bars out of some very beefy DOM tube. The tube size is 1.5" OD x .25" wall thickness. We manufacture these in house so we can offer you a wide variety of sizes. You can choose from our stock sizes, which range from 15" to 37" center to center. If you need a different length please give us a call. We will custom build you any length you want.

On one end of this bar is a poly bushing. The other end is a super pivot poly flex joint. The super pivot joint is a high quality joint that allows your axle to articulate from side to side. You would want this type of setup if you were going to hit some good side to side with the switches. The poly flex joint comes with its own zerk bolt so you can keep is greased up real nice. The total width of the super pivot joint is 2-5/8".

We offer 3 different sizes of bushings: 2.5", 2.75" and 3". If you order online we will send 3" wide bushings with your link bar. If you need a different width please call us to place your order. The inner bushing sleeve is made of steel and uses a 9/16" bolt.

The thread size we use on our bars is very large compared to the ones offered by other manufactures. Our standard thread size is 1-1/8". We machine our threaded studs out of a self-hardening material that get incredibly strong when welded. Every one of our round bars are TIG welded for superior strength.

We stand behind our bars so strongly that if you ever bend, strip or damage one, we ill replace it for FREE.

Available in raw finish only.

My control arms have a slight bend in them. So I don't know about them.

well mine are straight...
i believe the bend some aftermarket companies put in is for added clearance. this is a in house fab shop, im sure they can add a bend...
i was kinda looking at long arms...i mean its $75 weather you get 15" or 37".

the id of the mounts is 2 1/2" so i take it thats the bushing size we'd need.
i got about 15 3/4" for the LCA's so im guessing 15 1/2" or 16" adjustable would be what we need for the length.

I'd say that those could definitely work for most people. I'd like to see at least .33-.5 wall tubing for lower arms though.

my RC arms were 16" long from bolt hole to bolt hole... they were i think 1/4" longer than stock.

The bend in many control arms is there to give some clearance for the springs and some are bent inwards to give clearance for less bs rims.
