Caster adjusted front control arm kit.
Colorado RG 2017 onward.
NB: Factory width wheels (+33 offset) fit, wider wheels require less (more negative) offset to avoid clearance issues.
Notes: BLACKHAWK Upper Arms - Offset for lifted vehicle
The heavy duty Roadsafe "BLACKHAWK" range of Upper Control Arms have been designed with ease of fitment and ongoing serviceability in mind, and are a necessity for various IFS models that have been lifted 30mm+.
The Roadsafe "BLACKHAWK" arms have been designed to restore camber & caster lost on the IFS vehicles once they have been lifted, by correcting the angle of the ball joint. Without restored camber & caster settings lifted IFS vehicles will eventually show excessive tyre wear and experience ride and steering issues.
With greater radius and tube sizing (Heavy Duty 32mm OD, 6mm wall thickness STKM11A Carbon Steel Tube) to suit, the designs allow clearance of the coils during articulation, with the outer radius also adjusted to allow for the fitment (in some cases) of 35" tyres without having the issue of the tyres rubbing on the arms during full lock.
These arms have a bolt on ball joint. The factory fitted split washers on the 4 ball joint bolts should be removed. Tighten the bolts to 45nm. (these bolts are only hand tight).
Blackhawk upper control arms come fitted with the 'Next Gen High articulation HD' chromoly greasable ball joints.
The vehicle droop stops will prevent excess droop/down travel from the front suspension protecting other components of the suspension. The Blackhawk arms have been designed to replicate the Original design while offering corrected caster and camber, with increased internal and external clearances. For those that have customised suspension and would like more droop they can quickly & easily trim the factory droop stop bracket as required to suit their suspension requirements.
