    These are stock control arms that have been cleaned and the ball joints removed. 

    Control arms form the base of any suspension system.  For other suspension components to work effectively, the control arms must perform flawlessly.  Slight problems with geometry or construction quality can lead to inconsistent alignment or suspension bind.  These conditions can lead to erratic and unpredictable behavior and can greatly reduce the ability to properly diagnose and tune an ill-handling car.

    AFCO control arms are designed and constructed without compromise to provide consistent, predictable operation.  With AFCO control arms installed, changes in spring rate, shock valve settings, tire pressure, etc., will be more predictable and measurable.

    These control arms are garage sale priced because they are new old stock.
