Automotive Torque Arms
Put an end to spinning your wheels with the ultimate traction of a torque arm for your suspension. This aftermarket add-on is a special type of bracing that attaches to the chassis and the rear axle housing. From this position, it controls the rotation of the housing, which reduces flexing, twisting and wheel hop in the axle. This considerably increases suspension grip at high speeds. Read more about how torque arms work in the Eastwood Garage.
A torque arm suspension system is often a must in modified performance cars such as dragsters, sports cars and street rods. When you’ve added more engine power and force to the suspension, the rear arm brace enhances performance while lowering the risk of drivetrain damage. Aftermarket torque arms are used together with upgraded Panhard bars and lower trailing arms to improve rear grip, straight line traction and braking in any driving conditions. But even in a traditional leaf spring system, a torque arm can take handling to another level.
Performance Suspension Parts
At Eastwood, you can order QA1 torque arms for classic Fords and Chevys that are built to go fast. They’re made in the USA using tubular steel with a black powder coat finish for maximum strength and durability. The graphite/polyurethane front bushing further reduces the flex that can cause wheel hop when you accelerate, brake or turn hard. Standard torque arms mount in a single locked position on the rear end with grade 8 bolts. For even more customization, get a QA1 adjustable torque arm. They have ¾-inch spherical rod ends that you can use to alter the pinion angle.
