Product Overview: GM Upper Control Arm Shaft for Many 60's and 70 Model Applications
Product Overview: GM Upper Control Arm Shaft Part #709. This component applies to many 60's and 70 model GM applicationsProduct Link: Billet Shaft #709Product Information:
Global West manufactures replacement upper control arm shafts for GM applications. In the kit, hardware is supplied for securing the bushings in the control arm.
The shafts are designed to fit the stock upper control arm and Global West tubular control arms. Global West makes the cross shafts out of billet steel; they are available in both offset and standard. (See part# 702 for the offset shaft).The Global West Advantage:
Global West performance shafts are highly recommended because the shafts has a 5/8 fine threaded locking nuts holding the bushing in the control arm, instead of a 3/8 bolt lock washer and nut.
It is proven that using a bolt rather than a locking nut has a tendency to back out over time especially with performance bushings.
If you are switching over to Del-A-Lum bushings, nut-type control arm shafts like part #709 or #702 shaft are recommended.
