      These Mk4 Tubular Control Arms are designed to reduce unsprung weight while providing full wheel travel with minimal friction. Although the top-quality rod ends provide no cushion at all, they articulate without any of the binding and "sticktion" involved with rubber and harder material bushings. Driver and passenger typically experience a smoother but firmer ride with radical improvement in steering feel and handling precision.

      Note: Arms are set up for standard Mk4 Ball Joints. Those upgrading Mk4 R32 or Mk1 Audi TT cars will need a pair of our Conversion Ball Joints. Purchase a discounted set with your arms.

      The Group buy is available for the first 10 orders received. The group buy will be available for 10 days or until all 10 spots are filled. Which ever one comes first. (When ordering please include your username in the notes so that I can keep this thread updated)

      Okay, folks. You asked for some pricing help with these mighty Mk4 Tubular Control Arms. The USRT/IDF group buy is now officially ON with 10% off the introductory price and over 16% off what will be standard in TEN DAYS (or 10 kits sold).

      DISCOUNT CODE for website orders: CONTROLARM4




      As is already known from the massive introduction thread, these parts are built for drivers of dedicated performance cars AND the “go low” show car crowd. How can one kit provide the same exact improvements for cars with such different build specs? Racer types will love the handling precision that only solid rod ends (aka heim, pillow ball, or rose joints) can deliver. There’s no deflection that compromises normal bushing operation. There’s also ZERO binding as the suspension travels through it’s normal range.


      Try getting arms with stock bushings to move this far without binding. You CAN'T!

      Guys on airbag suspension aren’t too worried about handling precision but suffer badly from binding stock bushings. Forced to operate well outside their intended ride height range, they produce ride harshness and unpredictable handling. These arms are stronger than stock and weigh less, too. So, impact resistance is built in. Can’t dodge that pot hole? HIT IT with confidence. Put the extra camber adjustment to work to achieve extra “tuck” and correct tire wear problems, too. Solve all the typical annoyances with these direct bolt-on arms. Plus, THEY'RE SEXY AND YOU KNOW IT.

      Group Buy RATES are available for the next TEN DAYS or ORDERS -whichever comes first. (When ordering from our website, include your username in the notes section.) Post your name here, too.
