What are these control arms
Just bought a rust free 70 coupe roller and it has some unique control arms that I canít identify. Looks like itís an adjustable control arm , thereís a bolt used to apply pressure to the ride height.

Who makes these?

Early SWB arms.Must have been all they had.

Thanks so much

I was only searching control arms for future air cooled generations, I never thought it was a swb part.

It looks much stronger than the control arms on my 69 parts car. Is that the case? And does that mean the 69-89 control arms are engineered lighter with strength being a secondary consideration?

I'm not an early car expert but your A-arm (wishbone) swaybar mount is bolted to the arm. I thought the factory welded those.

SWB was bolt on sway bar bracket. Never saw those beyond '68. Maybe someone swapped the whole works long ago for some reason.
