The stock rear lower control arms are known to have strength issues with the rear sway bar end link mounting tabs. Many people have been having the rear sway bar end link mounting tab on the stock rear lower control arms on their 2010+ Camaro and 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 deforming, breaking off and/or cracking out the mounting hole. These issues have been found with a stock sway bar and stock end links as well as with aftermarket rear sway bars with stock end links or aftermarket end links.

On our SKU# C10-221, C10-221-DEL, C10-222 and C10-222-DEL rear lower control arms for the 2010+ Camaro and 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 were designed with greatly increasing the strength of the rear sway bar end link mount in mind. If you look at our CAD model below you can see that we have incorporated three specific measures into our rear lower control arms:

1. Our rear sway bar end link mount is CNC laser cut and formed from much thicker 3/16″ thick steel and they have extra “meat” in place surrounding the mounting hole area.
2. Inside of the rear lower control arm we have a fully welded 3/16″ steel full width and height gusset directly under the rear sway bar end link mounting tab. This ties the tab to the full surface area of the rear lower control arm to prevent any stretch of the tab away from the control arm.
3. The rear sway bar end link mounting tab is completely MIG welded around all sides.
