There are many good reasons for selecting tubular control arms.
All of our control arms and suspension links are constructed
from high strength round tubing and a variety of light plate
steels. The various sub-components are hand fitted in production
jigs and fixtures and expertly welded to produce high quality,
durable components of consistent accuracy.
Our tubular control arms are extremely stiff, showing no
noticeable signs of distortion under loads similar to those
resulting from 1g. plus turns. All pivot points are bushed in
resilient polyurethane and the installation of grease fittings
makes for easy lubrication and the elimination of the usual
urethane squeaking. While the designs are stiff and resistant to
distortion, they will collapse on impact, absorbing more energy
than the Fiero factory parts.
Rear links are available with spherical bearing pivot points.
These offer zero distortion at the pivot point with a slight
decrease in ride comfort, a consideration for those engaged in
serious competition. Unless otherwise stated, all control arms
and links are finished in black powder coat, a durable coating
that insures many years of corrosion free service. If you have a
preference for a coating other than black, we can accommodate
your needs -- there are many colors available. When ordering
special colors, be ready for a slightly longer delivery time and
possibly an increase in cost.
