Our control arms are a great addition to any solid axle Dodge Ram! These arms are much stronger than the OEM arms, and have more clearance for turning bigger tires.

Unlike OEM, our bushings have a good amount of deflection, and are not prone to failure with increased suspension travel.

Fitment:

  • Works on trucks with 0" to 3.5" of lift

Details:

  • Arms are 1/2" longer length, allowing the use of 37" tires, even with wheel offsets close to factory specs 
  • Lower arms are built from high strength 1.5"x3/8" wall 1026 DOM tube
  • Upper arms are a solid alloy bar
  • Wide flange joints, to make sure bolt torque has no problem keeping the arms locked in place, even under heavy abuse
  • Bends in lower arms do not cross center to retain impact strength.
  • Machined in house proprietary self centering joints to prevent the arms from rocking to one side and rubbing the frame/axle.
  • 17-4 Stainless Steel center pivots.
  • Stainless steel center pivots prevent rust seizing of the bolts and make for easy removal.
  • Joints are easy to grease and maintain. No special tools are required it is a very easy and inexpensive job to perform a rebuild.
  • Arms are texture blasted before powder-coating, to prevent impact chipping of the coating.
  • Main joint bushings are a moderate durometer high quality PTMEG Polyurethane for great wear resistance and vibration control.

We often get people who insist they need adjustable control arms. About the only time this is true, is if you are trying to build a custom 4" or so lift, or if you want to run this style arm (short arms) on taller 4" to 6" lifts or so. Problem with both of these scenarios is explained below:

  • With 0-3" of lift, you can only make the control arms 1/2" longer than stock. If you make them ANY longer, even 1/8", you will most likely hit the coil mount on the axle against the frame when the suspension cycles. Our arms are already the longest they can be with 0-3" of lift.
  • With over 4" of lift, short arms degrade handling and ride quality a MASSIVE amount. Instead of investing in expensive adjustable short arms, put that money into purchasing long arms, and build the truck the proper way.
  • Lifts between the 4" and 6" height requires all the same drop components. This means that with a 4" lift you have to limit bump travel 3". This means you increase your bump travel 1" more than stock. Massive waste of potential. For reference, our 3" lifts do not restrict bump travel, so you increase bump travel the full 3" when you lift 3".

    Very happy with new control arms!

    Instruction were good and easy to use. Used a grinder with cutting disk to remove head of RH upper bolt by exhaust which was ok since the set came with new hardware for the upper aft. Only thing that would have been nice if the kits had an option for all new hardware. I had to sawsall both lower FWD cam bolts off since they were seized in the bushings but I did buy all new hardware from a third vendor before I even started so not that big of deal. Control arms seem very well made and welds are solid. My front end is a lot tighter after the replacement of the 17 year old rubber bushing and old control arms. I would recommend these and consider this an upgrade!!

    The Missing Piece!

    By the time I put these on I had already replaced my factory steering, the track bar, sway bar, coils, shackles and shocks with Thuren parts - and while I noticed an improvement with each one, it never quite felt like I thought it should. A bit stiffer, looser, and noisier than I expected.

    Finally replaced my stock control arms with these, and can I just say, "HALLELUJAH!" The truck feels tighter, suspension more compliant, and it is way quieter. My stock arms were the cause of all the "issues" I was still experiencing (I had to cut out the cam bolts because they had seized in the bushings). 100% happy these and with how it turned out. They really just completed the "Thuren package." Now the 37's have a bit more room to breathe too!
