Global’s lower arm versus the original has the same single frame attachment point, but that’s where the comparison ends. This hefty piece becomes the main suspension support and features a polyurethane seat that indexes the spring so that it will be loaded properly around the coil. An absence of the index will place too much load at the very end of the coil spring rather than on the full coil. Over time, this will fatigue the spring and make it sag. Global builds it from 15/8-inch rollcage tubing, gives it reinforced pickup points, and lower bumpstops. The plastic dowel eases bushing install and alignment, but is only that. Put it in the toolbox for next time.
