Capitalizing on our already popular forged aluminum Rear Lower Control Arms, Skunk2 is proud to introduce the ultimate in stealth suspension modifications – Skunk2’s limited edition, Black Series, hard-anodized Rear Lower Control Arms. Each limited edition Black Series Rear Lower Control Arm features Skunk2’s signature black look in an anodized coating and is serialized for authenticity. This exclusive run is currently available for the ’92-’95 Civic, ’96-’00 Civic, and ’94-’01 Integra and is paired with red, low-deflection, polyurethane bushings for the ultimate contrast (black bushings sold separately).
Skunk2’s Rear Lower Control Arms are direct replacements, maintain OEM suspension geometry, and are ideal for street and race applications. Each arm is forged from aircraft quality 2024 billet aluminum, precision CNC-machined, and is more than 25% lighter than the stock arms. Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms also feature adjustable anti-sway bar mounting holes for advanced suspension tuning and optimum balance. The low-deflection, polyurethane bushings act as bearings for quicker response and a more positive feel. Skunk2 also eliminated tearing and un-seating problems typically associated with other fixed rubber bushings by allowing the arm to rotate freely about the bushings.
A UNIQUE SHAPE
Properly designed suspension components must be strong and functional first and aesthetically pleasing second. Skunk2’s Rear Lower Control Arms are both. Each arm’s I-beam shape and tapered design is a direct result of efforts to eliminate twisting, bending, and stress risers. Extensive FEA (finite element analysis) testing determined that conventional “straight and flat” designs are plagued by internal stress risers. A poorly designed arm will concentrate stress in particular zones, causing the arm to fracture and ultimately fail.
For maximum suspension performance, Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms are best complemented with Skunk2 Rear Camber Kits, Lower Arm Bars, and Strut Tower Bars. Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms are also available in JDM Gold, Clear, and Hard Anodized finishes.
