Part number CTA-79A upper control arm kit supports road racing, auto cross and street applications. Global West in the early 90's was the first to introduce a standard tubular arm for the market that had caster built into it. Caster is used for improving the cars handling and straight-line stability. The arm was the first to use Del-a-lum bushings as a standard component over polyurethane.Note:
The arms are sold in pairs so only one kit is required per car.

They have been featured in Engineering digest, Mechanics Illustrated, and several automotive magazine in the United States. Del-a-lum bushings have a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser and they are available for more than 80 different applications including stock control arms.
