After all of the time and effort expended on your C10, 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. Designed as an OEM replacement arm on lowers Chevy and GMC C10 trucks.
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.
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.
Tubular control arms add strength, style and improved performance
Self-lubricating Delrin bushings reduce deflection and suspension bind
Increased caster dramatically improves handling and control
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.
