EXCLUSIVE TECHNOLOGY - THIS AIN'T YOUR TYPICAL LONG ARM

Yes, the Radius Arm is back!

Radius Front Control Arms:

  • Fit ideally in to the limited space under the TJ/LJ Wrangler.
  • Aid to the protection of vital components of the under carriage.
  • Allow maximum up and down wheel travel while keeping the pinion angle in check. 
  • Have unparalleled on-road handling characteristics that cannot be denied.

But Radius Arms typically have a major problem... BIND. This bind causes premature bushing wear and undue stresses on the axle.

But, if we wanted a Radius Arm, we needed a Solution...

OKAY, THAT'S COOL TECH, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE REST?

Oh, we're not done... from the control arms to the belly pan, we thought of (just about) everything.

THE 4-LINK REAR, PERFECTED

While the Radius Arm front was ideal, we realized the space in the rear allows for a properly engineered 4-Link.

Choosing the 4-link rear control arm design provides added torque strength support for the main drive axle and provides a fantastic overall ride quality.

Our design eliminated the typical unsteady "Long Arm Roll" felt on a lifted LJ while cornering - and that's without running a rear sway bar!
