Why are control arms so important?

A track control arm is the hinged suspension link that connects the chassis and the suspension that carries the wheel. Attached with a single pivot, normally a rubber bushing, the control arm can adjust the position of the outboard end while sustaining the radial distance from the inboard mount. A track control arm is one of the most mechanically impressive parts of the suspension system, which means it is important to replace them when they become worn or broken.

Often the reason a replacement is required is due to the ball joint or bushing being worn out, but it can be very difficult and expensive to replace these components separately. This is why TRW believes that replacing the whole part will be more efficient and provide a longer lasting fix. Drivers should also consider changing the control arm when the wheel has been damaged due to an accident.


The benefits of choosing a TRW Track Control Arm

TRW Track Control Arms come in a range of shapes and sizes depending on the vehicle application. Finite element techniques from our expert technicians also help to optimise the weight and shape of the control arms.

The current TRW Control Arm range offers you more than 1,000 types of control arm component. This vast array of parts allows us to provide specialist help and support to a wide range of vehicle types. With upper and lower control arms for front and rear suspensions, we really do have everything covered when it comes to control arms.
