Control arms are a critical element within a vehicle suspension system, they maintain correct wheel alignment maximizing vehicle driving performance and occupant comfort. Dayco control arms are supplied fitted with all the necessary bushings and ball joints to facilitate the fitting of the units to the vehicle. Robust coatings also provide a high degree of protection for long service life.
BALL JOINT (BOLTED – PRESSED-IN)
Ball joints allow the precise pivoting of steering and suspension components and can be both pressed-in or flange mounted and secured by screws. Dayco ball joints are manufactured to the highest standards and come with hardened steel ball pins, friction reducing resin elements are lubricated for life and are completely sealed from the elements to ensure long service life.
CONTROL ARMS BUSHINGS
Control arms as well as many other steering and suspension components are fastened to the chassis through bushings. Dayco bushing parts are designed to reduce noise and vibration from the road while providing the necessary connection to the vehicle. The rubber compounds used in their manufacturer ensure long lasting resistance to cracking.
TIE ROD END, AXLE JOINT, TIE ROD ASSEMBLY
The tie rod end is fastened to the steering knuckle through a ball joint and is connected to the steering gear via the axle joint (inner tie rod). Dayco Tie rods assembly transfers steering force from steering wheel to wheel upright, absorbing road bumps, shocks and vibration enabling comfortable vehicle handling in any road condition. Integrated ball joints are lubricated for life using a special grease to reduce friction while the joints are sealed to prevent leakage and contamination.
Dayco steering boots and steering boot kits protect the steering rack from water, dust, sand and stones. Dayco uses special thermoplastic to reduce weight and noise and at the same time to guarantee a perfect fit to rack and steering pinion.
