Rear lower control arms?

Post by Sims426 » Fri Jun 27, 2014 10:43 pm

Does anyone make billet lower control arms for neons? Is there any desire for these? I have a buddy who has a CNC machining center and I could probably take measurements and have something drawn up for him to make if there was enough call for them. Any other options?
Thanks guys!

If you can generate enough interest, to where you would be selling them, you will need to request to become a vendor here to sell them.

You could also pay ~$100 to become a vendor on neons.org if you don't care to apply here for relatively free. (AFAIK there isn't a charge here. Donations are welcome tho. )

Definitely would play by the rules, I was just curious if anyone made them, and if people want/need them. I like the anodized billet look, would look nice under the rear end. Anyone have any info, or links? If not I may make a set and install them.

Yes Dcr and tunergeeks both makes some rear lateral arms. That's what they are technically called. Dcr sells them as cheap as $125 shipped. So I'm sure if you could make some and compete with that price that you could sell some. Make a prototype and reveal it to people and then go from their on if u offer them or not.

OEM arms are OK

Turns out, the OEM rear c-arms are "adequate" for anything but track use and very aggressive suspension set up.
The adjustable c-arms (in the hyperlinks) are great for alignment and track day camber/caster/toe etc.
If you want better rear suspension action (contribute roll stiffness, prevent brake lift etc) - then change the c-arm OEM bushings. They just disintegrate and the OEM c-arms are just waggling around.
Here's a good photo before you get billet or such - try the bushings.
