GC/GD Front Arms


SKU: gcgdfrontarms Category:


There are 3 main options: 2 piece, Solid (1 piece) and Solid Drift.

The first is our oldest style arm based on the 2 piece arms from European rally heydays. This arm offers a huge amount of caster/camber adjustment and the arm is easy to fix when damaged.  Most of the time to get your arm back in order a cheap compression strut is all that’s needed. We mainly recommend the 2 piece arms for road race cars that have the means to test and fine tune their car.

The solid arms are great for road or rally. These are very solid and are built to fit in the stock location with the ability to shim the wheel forward 20mm or more if needed.  These arms don’t allow for giant rims at high steering angles. The rear mount of this arm is a 1 inch com bearing; it is massive!

The “Solid-Drift” arm matches our rear-wheel-drive set up to meet the increasing demand of Subaru drifters. This is an epic option allowing for tons of wheel angle. They are not light weight control arm. A very thick-walled tube is required to make up for the amount of “cut-in” needed to allow high steering angles.

After choosing your arm style, the next option will be your bearing on the knuckle side of the arms. We can sell a pin and bearing that will lower the steering geometry about 1.75 inches OR we can press in an aluminum puck that will use the stock Subaru ball joint.  This will be useful for cars that have aftermarket roll center kits, don’t have a drastically lowered right height and want strong arms with near stock geometry.

We offer 4 widths from stock GD width to 60 mm wider.  All the arms are adjustable somewhat, but if you have a special application these sizes are for you. We stress that the inner DOJ/CV will not last or work at all over 20mm wider on the car and even at 20 there is a huge risk.

Powder coating: We are not discontinuing as originally thought, but this is a service we would like to keep and give you many options as possible. You can send your color directly to us. The added cost to powder-coat will be $75 for any color we have on hand or you provide. Colors that take more than one coat will be charged another $40 per added coat.
