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.Three advantages when choosing a rotating spring pocket:
1. Many people cut the coil spring to obtain a desired ride height. When you cut the spring, the spring will no longer line up in the lower arm or upper frame mount. In some cases, this can cause the spring to make noise rubbing on the edge of the pocket. Global West designed spring cushions to solve the rubbing issue. Rotating the cushion provides a way to re-index the spring.
2. The spring will be indexed properly around the coil. You will notice that most tubular lower control arms have a flat plate that the spring sits on. There really is no index. This places a lot of load at the very end of the coil spring rather than on the full coil. Over time this will fatigue the coil spring and sagging may occur.
3. Ride height adjustments can be made by shimming under the spring pocket.
