They are highly modified RX7 control arms that are cast alloy and way stronger than the cast alloy 944 arms. Cold rolled CNC steel adapters with a tensile strength of 54,000 psi. The rear stays are billet t-6061 that are also CNC machined to accept off the shelf Polyurethane or DELRIN bushings and mate to the 944 undercarriage. The adapter plates also allow you to unbolt the adapter and select for either EARLY or LATE offset in a matter of minutes. A 944 control arm was measured using a Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) to get the exact dimensions needed to program in the CNC for the adapter brackets. The arms are also designed to move the adapter plate to the top of the arm and allowing a 1" drop of the crossmember for a V8 swap or if you are using lowering springs on the car without having to install untrusty extended ball-joint pins. And last, but definitely needed is the bolt-on replaceable EARLY style ball joints. No more mushroomed or defective ball-joint pockets to worry about like the 944 alloy arms fall victim to.

My biggest concern is there a ball joint with a pin that will fit Turbo S struts..

Don't you mean Turbo S spindle?
The ball joint inserts into the 17mm dia. spindle holes. I have personally measuread all 944, 951, 968 spindles and they are all 17mm from factory.

Turbo S spindles

The ball joints fit all 944, 951,968 M030 and the Turbo S spindles. I have had a set in my possession recently being modded themselves for a Tie-Rod Bump steer kit I designed for the 944 that also outperforms anything out there....

rear RX7 to 944 bushing adapter details

The thick Polyurethane or Delrin bushings trump the 944 or 968 bushings by a mile.....

I have found the ball joints (MOOG) and Polyurethane isolators (Energy Suspensions)at a better price. So I am going to sell the last 2 pairs of control arms for $725 shipped instead of the original price I quoted of $825. They will take 2 weeks to build by the time everything arrives and I can machine the arm areas to install new bushings. Just PM me for details...Thanks, Rob

Very very interesting. Where were you 3 months ago when I was rebuilding mine?

Still interested, but these will be useless for me without accommodation for front sway bar. What's the word on that?

sway bar link upgrade

I'm waiting for the 10mm female heim joints to arrive before I trim the stock 944 sway bar links to match. Basically will wind up with an adjustable sway bar link with a stronger heim joint attachment point.....I will post as soon as I get it installed....It is easy to fully thread your factory link the entire length of the shaft using the stock M10 x 1.5 threads as a starter....

Figuring out a way to sell a used $10 control arm to you for $400?

3 months ago

That's about the time I started researching a way to build control arms that did it all and are HALF the Price of other builders (all other arms are 1600!). It took over a month of going back and forth to the CMM shop with parts to ensure the correct 944 geometry was retained when machining the conversion parts. I challenge someone to come up with a better design.
I was out this weekend looking at the links. There is literally 3-4 different ways to do them. You can even turn your stock sway bar upside-down and put in a drop link with a heim joint right on the end of the fully threaded 944 sway bushing link in the pic above. I'm doing something alittle different and making a bracket that moves the sway bar forward an 1.25" to clear my V8 engine cradle.

I cross posted this over on 924board.org, and there are some interesting opinions posted over there regarding the viability of this approach: 924Board.org :: View topic - X-Post: Custom A arms

Anyone considering these would probably be advised to read thru and consider some of the concerns expressed there. It would also be nice to hear from the creator regarding the concerns, and also to understand why $20 in used car parts with a piece of steel bolted onto the end justifies the $700+ price tag.
