Steeda's rear trailing arms for 2011+ Ford Explorers are made from thick walled tubular DOM steel and tig welded for ultimate strength. On the end that attaches to the chassis they feature high durometer poly urethane bushings that reduce the sloppiness inherent in the OE rubber bushings without added NVH (noise vibration or harshness). The open ends that attach to the IRS feature a welded gusset plate to further reduce flex or twist under extreme conditions. The DOM (drawn over mandrel) tube has no welded seams and won't flex like the weak factory arm during spirited driving. For towing applications, these arms provide a great improvement in stability. The final touch is Steeda's tough looking battleship gray powder coat that won't chip or corrode like other arms on the market.
NoteÂ : Arms are sold as a pair and not specific to driver or passenger side.
