Fatman Fabrications, Proud American Owned Company

  • Component manuals included

  • Comprehensive QA on all products

  • Nationwide shipping

Here are the facts! 

  • Thousands of our GTECH control arm sets have been installed since 1991.

  • Optimized geometry for modern radial tires and hot rod brakes.

  • Optimized upper ball joint position allows more positive caster for better handling without huge shim stacks.

  • Delrin-type upper and lower bushings for control (dependent on application).

  • American-made TIG-welded construction to ensure top quality.

  • 1” x .188” wall DOM tubing for maximum strength with minimal bulk.

  • Available in stock or narrowed widths for clearance on vehicles with fatter tires and subframes.

  • All new top-quality ball joints are installed.

  • Stamped 3/16” lower spring cup mounts a urethane lower spring insulator for NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) suppression.

  • Standard length arms have sway bar tabs installed (narrowed arms will require modification to the sway bar and its mounts).

  • Easy conversion to coilovers or air ride.

Note: The resto-mod revolution is one of the most exciting trends to hit hot rodding in 30 years and Fatman Fabrications is proud to be a part of it!  We are so committed to supplying the suspension parts needed to upgrade these cars that we have established the GTECH line within the family of Fatman Fabrications products.

You can use stock spindles, dropped versions of stock spindles, or ’70-’81 Camaro spindles. The taller Camaro spindles improve handling through an improved camber curve and allow the use of the larger 11” rotors and calipers from that car. Tubular control arms are available stock width or narrowed 1” per side for extra tire clearance. We use an offset control arm shaft to allow proper alignment without needing huge shim stacks and the upper ball joint has been relocated to allow more aggressive alignment settings. The narrowed arms do require some minor frame mods and the ‘70-’81 Camaro spindles mentioned above. We also offer them in a 3” widened version for hot rod enthusiasts who are using S-10 chassis under their project cars. This has proven especially helpful on the ‘55-’59 Chevy pickup.
