Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

We just put a set of the forward lowers on the JT. Working great. Just got back from the Scottsdale Goodguys, 600 miles round trip, plus autocrossing and night life. We even took it over to Dino's on friday night. Picts coming soon.

No.
They use a sway bar with "end links"
Addco sway bars will work.

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

So to double check. I have a 1.75" sectioned factory crossmember with cupper lower arms, 2.5" dropped spindles and I lay frame on my bags. Will just the lower arms move me forward 1" and keep me as low as a cupped lower factory arm?

here is a pic


just to clarify, the dropmember moves it 1.5" or 1"?

The lower Forward arm when combined with the factory upper will NOT move the wheel centerline forward a full inch. It's closer to the 3/4 mark. As far as height is concerned, it should sit the same height as your cupped lowers and bag combination.

The DROPMEMBER moves it right at as inch as well. This is done in the crossmember itself, and not the arms. The Dropmember requires the use of standard arms, and the Forward arms are not compatible with the Dropmember as they would move the wheels too far forward.

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

You guys make amazing products. I am ordering these once my Accuair setup is done.

I was actually considering getting a whole new frame because I was unhappy how far back my front wheels where after dropping the truck. This product is beyond exactly what I needed.

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

Nate, I have a 65' C10 with a 73' 1.5 sectioned xmember, 2.5 dropped spindles and bagged. I moved my xmember up the rails 1 inch to center the wheels. I would like to narrow the track around 1.5 to tuck the wheels. Since I already have my 1 inch forward, do you have arms that will just narrow my track for a bag setup? Also, what mods are required for the tie rods?

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

Are these porterbuilt tubular arms painted or powder coated? Or do they come unfinished?

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

They are unfinished and require coating/painting of your choice.

We do offer a narrowed arm in the "standard" ball joint location. We advertise a 1" narrowed, and 1.5" is the narrowest we will build them.

You will have to shorten your tie rod ends as well.

I have a sway bar I purchased from CPP that uses an end link bolting to the outer hole of the factory bushing clamp,does this sound like it will work. After reading the reviews on these control arms I'm very interested but can't afford to toss out any more parts. I'm looking at purchasing the 1" narrowed arms. Do you have a measurement of the sway bar that can be used link to link?

Frog-

We currently aren't running any specials on the control arms (this is an old thread).

They run $1049 (ball joints, bushings and cross-shafts included) and an extra $49 if you need the coil spring retainers. Shipping to San Antonio is going to run right at $75. We are build to order, and build time is right at 5 weeks right now.

Re: Porterbuilt Forward Arm Series - Sale

Okay so for $49 I get both spring retainers correct, and I think on your website it says 49$ for coil springs is that for both? Do you have an email address, so I can email you

The $49 only includes the billet spring retainers for coil spring application... not coil springs.
