Product Overview: Lower Control Arms Chevy 1955-57 Tri-Fives #CTA-57LProduct Information
Global West has introduced a different style lower control arm for 1955, 1956, and 1957 Chevy 210, Belair, and Nomad classic cars. The lower arm has several upgrades over other tubular arms on the market.
The control arms are shipped assembled with factory replacement ball joints, billet cross shafts, Del-a-lum bushings, bump stops, and a complete set of instructions including new alignment specifications. The lower control arms are powder coated black and the billet cross shafts are blue zinc (silver).
The Global West Advantage:
- An adjustable steering stop was incorporated because of all the different spindles used in the market. Many times you could get a reduced turning radius because of the combination between the spindle, steering knuckle arm, and tubular a-arm. This is no longer a problem.
- Global West also improved the lower arm cross shaft. It was streamlined for weight reduction and also a better appearance.
- These lower arms also have progressive bump stops. The bump stop was designed by Global West to provide additional assistance to the spring in case of bottoming.
The lower control arms will not interfere with the stock power steering components. Standard springs or lowered spring may be used. If you are going to go with a coilover spring and shock combination, Global West builds a specific lower arm for that conversion. Sway bar attachments are already installed on the control arm and any spindle for the Tri-Five applications will work.
New hardware for the lower control arm-to-frame attaching bolts are also included.
