FD: Adjustable rear lower control arms & trailing arms
« on: August 06, 2012, 11:56:53 AM »
Adjustable rear lower control arms and offset trailing arms!



This lower control arm & trailing arm package will eliminate 4 of the 6 rear pillow balls, give you additional camber adjustment, and give the car a solid, more accurate rear end. The included trailing arms come with offset spacers and are adjustable inwards (3 positions) at the lower control arm to accommodate wide wheels. Very little, if any, added NVH was introduced after installing this package, along with our toe links, and is very street friendly.

SPECS:
The lower control arm is made of cold rolled DOM carbon steel with a motorsports grade spherical bearing on the spindle side and a 3 piece motorsports grade, self lubricating teflon injected rod end on the subframe side. The trailing arm body is 6061 aircraft grade aluminum with the same 3 piece rod end on the subframe/chassis side. All materials are made in the USA. We use our own products on our cars and wouldnt feel comfortable using cheap materials while out on the track. These lower control arms are not compatible with OEM or other aftermarket trailing arms.

These kits are in stock and are ready to ship!
$750 plus shipping available at www.j-auto.net
Includes a pair of rear lower control arms and a pair of trailing arms.

Combine this package with our toe links, polyurethane rear upper control arm & differential bushings for a solid rear end that won't break the bank or your teeth fillings  ;)

Below is what the original prototype looks like on my FD. The new arms are stronger and feature beefier bearings (not that the prototype was weak).

Just saw the pictures of the carnage :o Are you going to get rid of the Mazda rear end?  For what it's worth... I also carry Carbonetic LSD's.

How wide of a tire could you run with these puppies on there?

That's pretty good. I'm running 265/45/17. I might have to give these puppies a whirl.
I am going to give them a ring today because I need new bushings too.

You can fit a decent size wheel & tire back there. The trailing arms are offset inwards at the subframe side and the trailing arm can be positioned roughly 1.50" inward, from the stock location, at the furthest mounting point on the lower arm. I run a 265/35/18 on a 9.5" wheel with plenty of room to spare.

I didn't realize that these showed as back ordered on this thread so I fixed it. Send me a PM, e-mail (sales@j-auto.net), or give me a call at 909-764-8501 if you need help with anything.

Just put in the order for the RLCA's. End of next week I will get some bushings and two pillow balls. :secret:
Thanks for answering my questions on the phone.

Got them in and they look very nice, can't wait to get them on. I will be putting in for the rest of the things I need on Friday. Might give you another ring.
