Manufacturing Monday's Featured Product: Polyurethane Control Arm Bumpers

Posted by Rare Parts Inc. on Oct 9, 2017 7:03:41 AM

This week’s Manufacturing Monday's featured product is our polyurethane control arm bumpers  - Part#: RP15945. Order a set today and feel the difference!

Control arm bumpers are typically out of sight and out of mind, but they are critical to your car's suspension system. Unfortunately, in addition to these bumpers being worn down from the impact of slamming into a pothole, rut or other road hazard, they are also subject to significant deterioration over time due to a range of all-too-common factors, including exposure to oil, grease and even sunlight.

Proudly manufactured in the USA, Rare Parts polyurethane control arm bumpers, use a higher durometer material than the OE rubber bumper and are also resistant to oils, grease, and UV light that damage other bumpers.

Stop worrying about your control arm smashing into your frame and knocking the wheels out of alignment, and start worrying about the destination of your next road trip.

Recently we wrote about how the Fab Series® steering received its U.S. patent, but we wanted to share a little backstory behind how the cartridge system came to be. Marshall Giorgi, our Vice President and the brain behind its creation, took an off-road trip with his Jeep and had a revelation on that day when he realized that there was a faster and better way to replace tie rod ends and or drag link ends while on the trail.
