Boxed Plate Lower Control Arm

6 of 12
The boxed plate lower control arms are four inches wider per side, and use one-inch spherical bearings in place of the factory bushing pivots. Internal gusset plates are a sign of strength, as are the wrap-around tabs that clutch the spherical bearing cups. Shock mounting tabs are usually not included, allowing the installer to determine the final shock mounting position. At the customer's request, Camburg can install coilover mounting tabs for 8-inch stroke shocks. It should be noted that tapping the full potential for 18 inches of wheel travel means using 10-inch stroke shocks and creating overhead wheel travel clearance by fabricating a custom radiator core support and deleting the factory A/C box. In addition to the shock mount fabrication required, the factory coil pocket bulge in the frame must be cut out and plated straight across to create the lateral clearance needed for the coilover and optional bypass shocks.
