ALTA Performance Control Arms allow for camber adjustment and smoother more accurate articulation. Constructed of 6061T6 aluminum and featuring Nylon impregnated rod ends, these control arms are a great way to improve the handling of your Mini Clubman. The stamped factory control arms have flimsy rubber bushings pressed in both ends. While an acceptable choice for the street, they are not ideal for performance minded driving.
ALTA adjustable control arms solve all of those problems without increased noise, harshness or vibration (NVH) associated with other adjustable control arms. The ALTA Performance control arms are machined from billet aluminum and threaded to accept heim joint ends. This eliminates unnecessary welding and extra pieces, further increasing strength. Threaded into both control arms ends are huge aircraft quality, Nylon impregnated, rod ends. The Nylon impregnating prevents the ball from coming loose, causing a rattle, as well as constantly cleaning the bearing surface.
Two sets of arms can be purchased to replace both upper and lower control arms. This can further increase rear end adjustment, and remove even more deflection from the OEM rubber bushings. Doing so also removes unsprung weight from the suspension. All these features add up to a part with both performance benefits, and durability that lasts forever.

ALTA Performance was founded in 1996 when owner Adam Taft, began to sell important performance parts from his parents’ architectural business in Beaverton, Oregon. Two years later, Adam rented space in a small retail store in an industrial part. It was at this point that ALTA Performance hired employees and began supplying inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports, it became the premier Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the Portland, Oregon area.
In 2002, ALTA Performance started offering aftermarket Subaru products because the Honda market became oversaturated. The Subaru products were so popular that the company dropped all its other ones. Jeff Perrin joined the ALTA staff as an installer and tech; at this time, ALTA began manufacturing some Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name. PERRIN and ALTA parts were selling like hotcakes and the company was forced to move once again to a larger warehouse. ALTA Performance added new vehicle lines to its portfolio like the EVO and Scion.
In 2007, ALTA Performance purchased a 25,000 square-foot facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. With room to grow, the brand could now add more production and office staff. For the first time since ALTA started manufacturing auto parts, it had a real showroom for local customers to visit and an in-house dyno for testing and tuning. Today, ALTA Performance continues to grow and has come a long way since its inception in 1996, where all of its inventory literally fit on a baker’s rack.
