Skunk2 Lower Control Arms for the EF, DA, EG, and DC2 chassis also feature adjustable sway bar mounting holes so you can fine tune the feel and balance of the rear suspension.
Skunk2 Lower Control Arms for the EP3, DC5, EM, ES and YH3 chassis feature unique steel mounting plates to evenly distribute the clamping force of the Skunk2 hardware, eliminating the tendency to over stress the material and eventually loosen over time. Included in the Hardware Kit you will find a Skunk2 embossed socket and 10 point zinc plated bolts. The socket is used to remove the OEM hardware as well as install the New Skunk2 Hardware.

• Features that Set Skunk2 Apart from the Competition
• Three Durable Anodized Finishes (JDM Gold, Gun Metal, and Clear CNC)
• CNC Machined from Forged AL-2024 Aluminum
• I-Beam Design for Maximum Strength and Resistance to Twisting and Bending
• Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for Strength and Performance
• Adjustable Sway Bar Mounting Holes (EF, DA, EG, DC2, and EK Chassis Only)
• Low Deflection Polyurethane Bushings that Act like Bearings
• Over 25% Lighter than Stock
• Special Zinc Plated Steel Mounting Plates, Hardware, and Skunk2 Tool (EP3, DC5, EM, ES and YH3 Chassis Only)

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 percent lighter than the OEM 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.
 
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
