1978-1988 GM G-Body (Cutlass, El Camino, Regal, Malibu, Grand Prix, Monte Carlo)
The Metco Motorsports high performance lower control arms for the G-Body are CNC-machined from 6061-T6511 billet aluminum for unsurpassed strength and precision-fit. The control arms are clear-anodized for long-lasting surface protection.
Our control arms are designed to be installed as a direct replacement for the factory control arms, but offer the benefits of the dramatically stronger billet design and Energy Suspension-brand polyurethane bushings. Each bushing has a grease fitting for long term, noise-free service. The arms are machined to accept the factory rear sway bar (or aftermarket equivalent) and require no modifications to the vehicle for installation.
Detailed installation instructions are included.
Image 5 shows the control arm set assembled with the optional relocation brackets, which are listed elsewhere in this section.
Note regarding bushing selection: For street and street/strip vehicles, the polyurethane bushings are recommended. For more serious vehicles used in competition, the Delrin/polyurethane bushing combination should be used. Delrin is a low-friction, composite material that allows near-zero deflection at each control arm mounting point. Delrin bushings offer extreme durability but are not recommended for street use. Please call for details and pricing.
