Where to get adjustable lower arms


Mad Man Measures
 Share

Recommended Posts

I am desperately in need of a set of adjustable lower arms as mine are making the inside edge of my tyres wear very quickly and Sunday morning I am going on holiday which will require a lot of driving. Does any 1 know where I can get some off the shelf in or around Essex?

 

dont think there in production anymore anywhere (afaik area six where the last to make fully adjustables for escorts), you might get lucky with a second hand set but I wouldnt cross my fingers tbh.

 

shortened standards are pretty easy to acheive with a little chop sawing and weldng but you have to be dam sure of your measurement before doing it, that should sort any camber issues (thats assuming camber is the cause of your woes) :thumb:

how low is it at the front? mines down 40mm and i suffered terribly with inside wear,but i recently acquired some polybushed items which seem to have stopped the inside wear,i also heard that genuine ford van arms do the trick to.

Thanks guys area six do make them an are still around as far as I know but I was hopping some 1 would know of some where else more local to me I could get some from quickly

 

 

well considering there quite a specialized item youve gotta be willing to sacrifice time for delivery if you really need them.

 

the only way you'll get em fast is going there and picking them up really :thumb:

Not to sure what the drop is tbh as I got coilovers not a lowering kit. I'm gonna go an get my camber measured tomorrow an see if I can get polly bushed arms if the camber isnt too far out.

I know but I only just noticed that the inside edges of me front tyres had worn a lot today an I only got new tyred 2 months ago. and i am Going on holiday on sunday which will involve a lot of driveing so i have to get something sorted. I had my tracking done for a 4th time in the past 2 months today an that just seemed to make it pull to the right under breaking an give a fair bit of tyre squeel when cornering at 5 mph

You're not going to get adjustables today.. You could make your own though. It's not hard!

 

Realistically though... just go get some arms from Ford...

Ok cheeRS I don't have access to a welder so ill just get a new set from Ford. I herd that elite in rainham are pretty good at checking tracking and camber so I might get them to take a look so I know if replacing my lower arms will solve my problems

I personally wouldn't go to Elite but the place I would go to is highly unlikely to be able to see you today.

Both me lower arms are completely feced I also need new front tyres an I'm getting me tracking done an they are charging a bloody fortune! £295 but well it needs doing today so I'm just gonna bite the bullet an pay it. Just for future reference where would you recommend stu?
