Dodge Adjustable Control arms
Which Style Do I Need?
0ne of the most common questions we get is which kind of arms I need for my Dodge pickup, so here is a little info to help you choose the correct set for your truck. if you’re questioning if you need adjustable arms, check out our article about the benefits of adjustable control arms.
Styles of adjustable control arms
Let’s start with the most common one we sell, the Single Adjustable Dodge control arms; these will work for all applications but may not be your best option depending on a few reasons. These will allow you to correct alignment issues and recenter your axle, which can also help if your tire rubs at the lower rear of the front fender down at the rocker panel by moving the axle forward. The Item below is a single adjsutable control arm.
High clearance Dodge control arms will do everything the single adjustable control arms do, but the one benefit the high clearance control arms bring to the table is this. If you are running stock wheels or a stock width and stock offset wheel with an oversized tire, you can then rub the control arms themself, and the only way to eliminate this is by having control arms that have the bend added to them to add more clearance for the wider tires on the stock wheels. You will likely not need the high clearance control arms if you have after-market wheels with more offset than factory wheels.
Double adjustable control arms will be the choice if you want to make quick and easy adjustments without dropping one side of the control arm to adjust. Suppose you’re having trouble getting your alignment dialed in or have a heavily modified suspension and are unsure what your control arm lengths should be. In that case, these double-adjustable arms make the process much easier and quicker.
