Ready LIFT now offers a great solution for 2016.5-Up GM 1500 truck owners who want to level trucks with stamped steel suspension. In 2016.5 GM went to a stamped steel upper Control arm that is not suited for use with leveling or lift kits. The factory stamped steel Control Arm has no ball Joint support or locking ring to secure the ball joint. Gm has stated that no leveling or lift kits should be installed on new model GM 1500 Trucks. At ready LIFT, Our engineers have developed a fantastic solution. We no offer heavy-duty DOM tube steel upper Control arms with reinforced joint cups and features our proprietary spring loaded 1-ton ball joints. Additionally, these new Arms include our all-new pivot bushings that are absolutely the best on the market today. These new Inner pivot bushings provide unrestricted free float, are non-binding, self lubricating and completely maintenance free!

In automotive suspension, a control arm, also known as an A-arm, is a hinged suspension link between the chassis and the suspension upright or hub that carries the wheel. The inboard (chassis) end of a control arm is attached by a single pivot, usually a rubber bushing. It can thus control the position of the outboard end in only a single degree of freedom, maintaining the radial distance from the inboard mount. Although not deliberately free to move, the single bushing does not control the arm from moving back and forth; this motion is constrained by a separate link or radius rod.

This is in contrast to the wishbone. Wishbones are triangular and have two widely spaced inboard bearings. These constrain the outboard end of the wishbone from moving back and forth, controlling two degrees of freedom, and without requiring additional links.

Most control arms form the lower link of a suspension. A few designs use them as the upper link, usually with a lower wishbone. The additional radius rod is then attached to the upper arm.
Control arms are most commonly encountered as part of the MacPherson strut independent front suspension. The control arms are perpendicular to the axis of the vehicle and are termed track control arms. A diagonal radius rod constrains the strut from moving forward and back.

In MacPherson’s original design, an anti-roll bar also acted as the radius rod. This requires the bar to be attached through a ball joint, so as to also provide longitudinal control. In most contemporary designs, still commonly termed MacPherson struts, the radius rod and anti-roll bar are now separate, with the anti-roll bar mounted in a sliding bush.

A control arm may be used to carry the suspension load and transmit them to the spring or shock absorber. Torsion bar suspension commonly does this, with the outboard end of the torsion bar attached to the inboard bearing of the control arm.
