They look sweet, but more importantly these new TIG-welded tubular control arms from Classic Performance Parts (CPP) are much stronger than what was originally placed on the ’67. The arms are made from 1.25-inch 0.120 wall DOM tubing and have thick 1.5-inch 0.188 wall pivot barrels. This ensures the pivots stay true even under stress. The arms come preassembled on new billet chromoly 4130 cross-shafts and pivot sleeves. These sleeves capture both sides of the bushing, unlike the stockers that are only retained on one side. As a result they’re much stronger and better resist flex. As a safety measure the control arms incorporate an interlocking shaft and sleeve design so that the bolts can’t work loose. The fact that they came with new ball joints already installed saved us the hassle.
