Suspension Control Arm And Ball Joint Assembly
Control Arm with ball joint assembly (Track Control Arm with ball joint) is the largest and most critical part of the front suspension elements that keeps the wheels in position and limits their movement against forces from the outside, but allows upwards and downwards movements. Product Strength and Life Tests are carried out in our state-of-the-art quality laboratories with great precision and we have Control Arms and Ball Joint Assemblies produced by Teknorot for many brands and models. Damaged or bent control arms deteriorate vehicle ride dynamics, handling and alignment. Teknorot control arms are engineered to restore original performance and include ball joints and bushings where applicable. There are many components of the suspension system that operate together and in a proper way so that the vehicle could stay off the ground and present desirable handling and control on the ride. Based on design requirements, cars can have both an upper and a lower control arm at each side (driver & passenger) or only a pair of lower at each side. Each type of control arm has got rubber bushings at each of the pivot points, which aim to prevent friction and allow the wheels to return to their right positions after recieving the impacts from the road. Most control arms originate with these bushings. The rubber wears down with time or deteriorates with exposure to the elements. We can also face some problems with the control arm if the car hits a hard bump and end up bending the control arm. This is also a good time to check other elements of the suspension system for wear or breakage, especially if a hard bump has bent or damaged the control arm. Some control arm bushings require special tools to replace them, so it is often a better proposition to replace the entire arm, which comes with new rubber bushings. The suspension system provides flexibility to the vehicle, allowing it to adjust to the uneven roadways. Control arm aids this process by working with other suspension components to allow each wheel to flex independently, adjusting to the differing levels of the driving surface. This flexibility allows the tires of the vehicle to remain in good contact with the road for good vehicle stability and steering control. The steering and handling of the vehicle are given support by the control arm as it helps to keep the front end tight and in good alignment. Control arms can made up from different types of materials that require different kind of production capabilities. For all that, Teknorot offers every single type of control arm for targeted cars and markets. To give example, the tendancy of some brands in general is to use stamped sheet metal as the main material in their production lines. Renault, Citroen, Toyota, Fiat, Volkswagen do it so as we encounter, while Bmw, Mercedes and Audi prefer forged aluminium material rather than using cast iron or stamped sheet metal in the control ams of their models. Teknorot, with increasing production capacity, can respond to all control arm needs from the market. Wishbone with ball joint is classified as Control Arm with ball joint.
