Chevrolet Control Arm
The Chevy control arm is one of the many components of the vehicle suspension system, helping to keep the vehicle stable and controlled as it travels. Without the help of the suspension system, the vehicle would lack the flexibility to adjust to the uneven road surfaces that are so common in everyday travel, leaving it very unstable and rigid as it traveled over bumps and rough roads. The Chevy control arm, along with other suspension components helps to keep all four wheels in good contact with the road, allowing them the ability to adjust independently to uneven and bumpy surfaces. The Chevy control arm helps to maintain the proper alignment of the vehicle front-end, helping to keep it tight and stable. The Chevy control arm also works with the suspension to insulate the vehicle body from some of the vibration and jolts that rough roads can bring, protecting it from damage and giving a smooth ride for passenger comfort. There is an upper and lower Chevy control arm positioned at each vehicle wheel, each equipped with a rubber bushing at each pivot point. These bushings help in absorbing the vibration of the road and prevent wear in the Chevy control arm as it moves against other suspension parts. These bushings will deteriorate over time, becoming cracked and brittle from the elements, or wearing away with normal use. When these bushings fail, the Chevy control arm may begin to make noise over bumps as your travel.
