How and Why...
Carli started out with a .120 wall box tube, which offers superior strength, yet provides better tire clearance than round tube. Stock control arms are NOT meant for high-speed off-road use.
The joints are .250 wall chromoly tube that is custom machined and finally laser cut with a retainer wall on one side and a retainer clip groove on the other. Next, Carli drops in chromoly ball centers that are hardened to a high rockwell with urethane bushings, internally lubricated with Red Line synthetic grease. Zirc fittings compliment each joint, featuring side specific fittings for easy maintenance, you can get your grease gun on the joints with ease.
What you want to watch out for are control arms with rubber, or Delrin style joints. When the Dodge 4-link front end cycles, it isn't a perfectly vertical movement, there is left-to-right geometry as well as forward and backwards movement. What this requires is .25 inch worth of movement. Carli accounts for this by housing the hardened chromoly joint with a urethane coupling. If the two points are fixed, there will be excessive bind and any other style joint will eventually wear out and need replacement. These are designed to withstand the worst conditions possible, which include the 2007 SCORE International Baja 1000, and performed flawlessly...
American Made Dodge Ram Suspension Components
Every control arm is hand assembled in the Carli Suspension shop. These controls arms consist of being jig assembled and welded in a mild steel construction. Following this is a black powder coating finish and its on to the assembly, adding hardened steel joints, urethane couplers and steel retaining plates and ring.
Control arm joints come pre-lubricated with Red Line Synthetic high performance grease, the best on the market that doesn't break down the urethane couplings. Of course every arm is assembled with a zirc fitting per joint that is positioned for easy maintenance.
