PFADT Rear Arm Package
This package includes both the Rear Trailing Arm and the Rear Tie Rod, plus ALL bushings. Individual descriptions below
The Pfadt 2010 Camaro Rear Trailing Arms were developed using the latest analysis software which enabled us to increase strength by 106% while simultaneously reducing mass by 17%. The decrease in trailing arm mass allows the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Through further analysis and testing we were able to achieve a 32% reduction deflection which helps decrease wheel hop and increase traction.
Using the same tools and procedures for the Pfadt 2010 Camaro Rear Tie Rods we were able to increase strength 136% while simultaneously keeping mass at a drastic minimum (lighter than OEM w/ bushings). Same principles apply to the Tie Rod as the Trailing Arm: Keeping the mass low to allow the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Through further analysis and testing we were able to achieve a 99.8% reduction deflection which helps decrease wheel hop and increase traction even further.
Included with this kit is our leading edge Trailing Arm Bushing Kit and Rear Tie Rod Bushing Kit. Utilizing lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum sleeves that are hard anodized to create incredible surface hardness and microscopic pores to hold our special grease. These sleeves are then Teflon coated to further reduce friction. This is then coupled with our graphite impregnated polyurethane bushing which uses deep grease grooves to hold and continuously re-lubricate the surfaces for long and quiet operation. The result is an ultra lightweight, ultra-low friction joint that is 42% lighter than the OE bushing and more durable then ever before. This kit includes the bushing for both the trailing arm and also the upright for a complete performance trailing arm upgrade.
The final arms are the result of four stages of precision manufacturing; CNC machining of the bushing housing, Laser cutting of the intricate panels, CNC bending and TIG welding to finish the assembly. All of this is accomplished right here in the USA.
