A little over a year ago we set out to develop a lower control arm for the SVT Raptor that would not only enhance the drive of the vehicle, and offer for more versatility to the front end of your SVT Raptor. The RPG Lower Control Arm features a race-car inspired box construction with all three pivot locations attached via a robust 1.5″ FK spherical bearing that is welded on both the inside and out, totaling over 1 foot of weld on each bearing cup for added strength and security and continued this welding approach to the vast majority of the inside construction. The arm itself has been tested for over a year now producing incredible results. It was developed to accept a stock shock, an aftermarket 3.0″ shock or our SVT Raptor industry first, stock width dual Fox Racing Shox 3.0″ bypass setup for total control.
During this past year of testing we’ve learned a great deal about the geometry that was needed for optimum ride performance plus small, but necessary things like incorporating factory like steering stops into the arm to limit the wear and tear on the factory steering box and outboard CV’s. The arm will bolt right up on the chassis side of things using upgraded grade 8 hardware, plus custom machined center-pins tapered to fit the factory knuckle all the while wrapped in a beautiful titanium powder coat to last for the long haul. However, the best and most versatile part of the arm is found sitting on the back side. When bolting up Raptor Performance Group Lower Control Arm, you will now be able to run our Dual Fox Racing Shox 3.0″ By-Pass setup. The control is amazing and the damping power is light years beyond any single 3.0″ setup that will ultimately take you into terrain that was otherwise unthinkable. With our new Lower Control Arm and Dual shock setup, jumps that used to leave you cringing, are now nothing more than mellow launching pads keeping you yurning for more. And just like every other part we produce, you will receive the piece of mind knowing that you will be bolting on an arm that has been tested harder than any other arm available for over a year now, plus the added security of knowing its backed by our lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
