Track bars keep your vehicle laterally stable and manageable while the suspension does its job. But it's a tough task, especially handling the greater mass of work vehicles. The bar's points of connection are critical, and that's where bushings take a battering. The constant push, pull and strain while under way, especially over rough surfaces, takes its toll, as do the ordinary factors of age and time that compromise the strength and performance of the original materials used.

Drag links, the steering components that convert the circular motion of the steering column and Pitman arm to useful linear motion, are subject to a good deal of stress.

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.
