1965-70 Impala, Biscayne, Caprice and Bel Air | Rear Airbag Lower Control Arm w/ Spherical Bearing & Rubber Bushing # TBC-50B


Control Arms, Sway Bar, Bushings
1965-70 Impala, Biscayne, Caprice and Bel Air | Rear Airbag Lower Control Arm w/ Spherical Bearing & Rubber Bushing # TBC-50B
One major improvement over stock is the ability to pivot at the frame without adding excessive loads on the frame mount. The X frames are noted for not being strong. Global West uses a Teflon lined spherical bearing instead of rubber or polyurethane. The bearing allows the arm to pivot up and down and swing slightly side to side (because of the panhard rod) without putting additional stresses on the frame mount. On the rear end side, the arm is built with a rubber bushing. Why you might ask? Rubber allows minor lateral movement that is required because of the panhard rod. The factory used a panhard rod to control the rear end side to side movement. Unfortunately, the panhard rod is fairly short. As the rear end moves up and down, it also moves slightly left and right because of the arc of the panhard rod. Therefore, rubber is the best choice for our application. If polyurethane was used, it would restrict the movement. Watch the product overview video above for more information.
