Ideal for street and race applications, Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms replace your stock arms while retaining factory suspension geometry. The Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms are forged from aircraft quality AL2024 billet aluminum, precision CNC machined and are over 25% lighter than stock arms. Skunk2 Lower Control Arms feature adjustable sway bar mounting holes so you can fine tune the feel and balance of the rear suspension, and also feature low deflection polyurethane bushings which act as bearings for quicker response and a more positive feel. By allowing the arm to rotate freely about the bushing, Skunk2 eliminated the tearing and unseating commonly found with fixed rubber bushings.
The reason Skunk2 used a design which incorporates a 'step??_ where the mounting plate transitions into the beam is to eliminate stress risers that occur with the arm. Through extensive FEA analysis, Skunk2 determined that conventional designs are plagued by internal stress risers. In other words, if an arm is not designed properly, stresses will concentrate in various areas of the arm. The material will begin to fail (fracture) from these highly stressed areas. The way the Skunk2 arm is shaped and tapered are all a direct result of eliminating stress risers. Any properly designed arm needs to be strong first, and pretty second.
