  • How do you measure control arm length?

    You should subtract -approximately- 4" from the LIFT HEIGHT to determine your LOWER control arm length for use with R.E. drop brackets. In other words, if you have an 9" lift WITH R.E. drop brackets, use the l.c.a. measurement for a 5" lift. Upper measurements should remain the same.3 Mar 2009
  • Why do control arms break?

    Like any car component control arms wear down over time and need to be replaced.

Over time, the wear from constant movements and New England potholes can also cause them to break.20 Oct 2021
