Worked great on my s10 street rod projec

October 29, 2014
I ordered these control arms as replacements for the original ones that were rusted through and they worked just fine. The tubular design looks great and gave more clearance for exhaust manifold on the left side. They cleared the spring bucket on the chassis just fine and would look great with an open engine concept hot rod. The shafts are fully greasable also.
Pros:
  • look great and greasabe shaft.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Get what you pay for

December 24, 2010
I put these on a 1996 S10 with a 454, I used two right sides to get the correct camber. They went on easily. The workmanship is not as good as it could be. The holes for the bolts on the ball joint were much larger than the bolts themselves so you have to pay attention when you put on the ball joints to center them. The welds that joing the arm to the tubing that is on each end of the control arm coule be a lot better. It's made in china, nuff said. For the money not a bad unit and an easy way to shed a few pounts. I put these on to add clearance for the big block fenderwell headers and they did the job quite well.
Pros:
  • Fits
  • Lightweight
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes you would need two right side arms. These are designed for circle track use and do not have any bushings at the pivot point. They can be a little noisy for street use and once pivot is worn they will need replaced.

You will need to check with your tech inspector on their interpretation of "stock replacement." These do bolt to the stock upper control arm mounts of a '78 to '88 G body car.

Will these fit a 1992 S10 Blazer that has 2" lifted Springs? I would like to make sure before I make a purchase. I seen two other customers purchased 2 Right Upper control arms to balance the camber angle, is there any issue with this or should I stick with getting a Right and Left Control Arm.... THanks!

These control arms number 91031133 stem for circle track racing and if used on a street or drag vehicle two rights would be suggested in order to get proper steering alignment and geometry.

Answers

These control arms stem from circle track racing and designed for oval track camber reguirements. The left arm is 8.5” from center of cross shaft to center of ball joint as compared to the right arm being 8” from same points. This allows for greater camber variance from left to right. With enough adjustment correct camber alignment may be obtained but other steering geometry problems may exist. The arms are also not DOT approved. Compare to dimensions of your stock arms before ordering and you also may need the ball joints number 91720045.

Thanks for looking into our products here, the arms you are looking at are for offroad use only, we use them in circle track racing applications and are not suited for drag or street use as there is no bushings on the control arms its just metal to metal.

AFCO Low Friction Ball Joints are designed with 2 ft. lbs. of resistance, the force required to move the stud of the ball joint.  Compare this with standard replacement joints, with as high as 50 ft. lbs. of resistance.  A difference you can feel!

It is critical to handling that suspension components be as free as possible to move.  Low friction ball joints allow the suspension to give rather than allowing the tire to bounce over rough surfaces.  Low tire pressures magnify the need to minimize friction in the suspension.
