NOTE: Different rear end gear ratios generate different loads on the rear control arms. Numerically higher gear ratios put higher loads on the rear lower control arms for the same amount of engine torque.
If you need assistance selecting the proper control arms for your application, please feel free to call the MM Tech Line.
Maximum Motorsports’ Aluminum Rear Lower Control Arms improve traction and handling by eliminating bushing compliance and correcting suspension geometry. Spherical rod ends ensure precise axle control, eliminating the compliance that leads to wheel hop, while still allowing the rear suspension to articulate freely. Offset mounting bushings correct the rear suspension geometry for reduced understeer. The arms come preset to the stock length for easy installation, and offer length adjustability to square the axle to the chassis. These lightweight control arms weigh in at a scant 2.28 pounds each, nearly 9 pounds per set lighter than the OEM control arms. They are anodized gray for durability and great appearance. While acceptable to performance enthusiasts for street use, expect a mild increase in noise transmitted through these arms. Keep your tires firmly planted with Maximum Motorsports Rear Lower Control Arms!
NOTE: Work on one side of the car at a time. Do not remove both rear lower control arms at the same time. All photos show the passenger side.
1. Safely jack up the rear of the car, and support the chassis with jackstands placed under the pinch welds.
2. Remove the rear wheels.
3. Disconnect the passenger side parking brake cable from the brake caliper by removing the retainer clip and slipping the end of the cable off of the caliper.
