A Picture of Tubular Control Arms and other mechanical parts
One of the biggest trends we’re seeing is the resurgence of the ’88-98 Chevy OBS trucks. While there are a handful of suspension and brake parts already on the market, most were designed when these trucks were new. A lot changed in the last 20 to 30 years and Classic Performance Products (CPP) thinks there is plenty of room for improvement, which is why they are developing entirely new products for the OBS trucks with the goal of integrating modern technology and design to accommodates today’s contemporary build styles.

One of the first products they designed and built are tubular control arms. To give more wheel to fender clearance, CPP’s Tubular arms are 1.5 inches narrower per side than factory, opening up many more wheel options. Made from DOM tubing, these arms are seriously tough while integrating features like steering stops, bumpstops, and sway bar mounts. They will also work with a stock coil and shock setup or dual-adjustable coilovers with packages available in multiple ride height options for either. Kits even come with sway bar endlinks featuring rod ends on one side and bushings on the other to connect the factory sway bar for lowered applications.

CPP is the leading manufacturer of high-quality steering, brake, and suspension components for classic Chevy and Ford cars and trucks. All CPP products come with a limited lifetime warranty.
