SpeedDirect Shark Bite Aluminum Lower A-Arms for C2-C3 Corvettes

1963-82 Corvette owners now have the opportunity remove a substantial amount of weight from the nose of their heavy machines. SpeedDirect‘s beefy new aluminum lower control arms work with the company’s Shark Bite front coil over kits to substantially reduce weight and improve performance.

Official Release:

SpeedDirect is pleased to announce Shark Bite Aluminum Lower Control Arms for C2-C3 Corvettes (1963-82). These are the latest product in their quest to transform vintage Corvettes into modern handling machines. The new alloy control arms offer a significant reduction in un-sprung weight for the front suspension.

They are designed to accept coil over shocks and springs giving owners the ability to adjust ride height, spring rate and shock response when paired with optional single or double adjustable shocks. These rugged lower A-arms have a ridged aluminum design with PTFE-lined ball joint bearings to ensure accurate, repeatable suspension tracking throughout the entire range of travel. They are a huge improvement to the heavy, rubber bushed, stamped steel factory lower control arms they replace.

The a-arm kit comes complete and includes beefy cross shafts to virtually eliminate shaft flexing, which changes suspension geometry. U.S. made high quality precision ball joints as well as Grade 8 fasteners are also included.


  • Precision-made PTFE-lined ball joint bearings for accurate repeatable suspension tracking
  • Welded/machined aerospace alloy construction
  • Heavy duty steel cross shaft
  • Compatible with coil-over shock and spring packages
  • Precision U.S. made ball joints
  • Complete bolt-on kit including Grade 8 fasteners
