Some Nitro owners who have had a lifted Nitro for awhile and play hard, May have had to change out their upper control arms. Our Dodge Nitro Control arms are a great alternative. Its also not uncommon for the stock control arms to contact the spring and make a noise during suspension movement, another issue which our Liberty control arms help minimize.
FACT: We stand by our lifetime guarantee on the arms, the other RED arms on the market have had welds fail, numerous problems, and the company does not stand behind them.
FACT: We use a MOOG Cadillac Escalade Ball Joint. Our competition's ball joints are a 'in-house brand' and can only be purchased from our competitor.. expensive, AND you're screwed if something breaks while you're away from home... or they ever go out of business! Our MOOG Ball Joints can be purchased at any auto parts store, anywhere in the world.
FACT: Our competitor's Ball Joints are not stronger or more durable than the top of the line MOOG Ball Joints in the Rocky Road kit.
FACT: Our kits are manufactured for lifted Jeeps, and allow factory spec alignment as easy, or easier than our competition.
These great control arm kits fix *alignment, ball joint, and spring clearance issues! Rocky Road control arms are identical in length to the stock control arms, the difference is in the angle of the mounting plate for the new replaceable ball joints. While our ball joints have an insane amount of movement range, the design of our control arms puts the ball joint in a neutral position while the Nitro is lifted. This eliminates the possibility of the ball joint binding up and guarantees a longer life. Our engineering also allows for easier and more accurate camber alignment by your local alignment specialist.
Not only do our control arms carry a reasonable low price tag and have been found by MOPAR to be the best, we've also engineered some additional upgrades not so easily seen.
Heavy Duty durable bushings which, if they ever need replacement, can be found and serviced anywhere in the world Dodges are sold.
Factory rubber bushings for a long, quiet life with a supple ride. Easily sourced if they ever wear out...no need to special order.
Our ball joints are the same as those you find in such heavy vehicles as the Cadillac Escalade, and so are more than strong enough for use on the Dodge Nitros. The radial static load rating on our ball joints is also thousands of lbs stronger than the standard Nitro, for a more durable design. The MOOG joints in our kits can also be found around the world in most auto parts stores, and so are an easy exchange when/if the need should ever arise for a replacement.
Bootie. Yes, we give you free (extra) bootie. Since the heavy duty ball joints we use are larger than stock Nitro, they are also longer. We now provide a special tie rod boot to work as a shim and spacer to the tie rod's existing boot to ensure a good seal and no boot slippage (pictured at right).
Unique to the Rocky Road control arm system is also a simple bolton bumpstop extension. These are a great simple little add-on for those that really do play hard with their Nitros. You can view this nice optional item in the picture at left along with the grease fitting on the bushing.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who has had alignment problems with these arms is because they have mounted the ball joint to the bottom of the control arm.
Look close at the picture to the left (or top left on this webpage) for correct orientation of the ball joint coming in thru the top to alleviate any installation or alignment issues! The bumpstop mount is on top of the ball joint which is on top of the control arm. Please follow our installation instructions and photo details carefully to avoid alignment problems...
Rocky Road Control arms have a lifetime guarantee never to bend or dent. If they do, send it back and we will replace the arm for you. This is important since we have had people who have purchased our competition's control arms and broken them, only to find out the company will not stand behind the product.
As a result of the extremely heavy duty .25 wall DOM tubing we use on our arms, damage will never happen, ever. Stronger control arms, you can not find. The mounting plate for the ball joints is equally overkill. You cannot harm these control arms. The ball joints themselves are very easily changed out should the need ever arise for servicing.
Liberty control arm kits come with the Extreme Duty ball joints and dust boot, rubber bushings, and hardware. All are powdercoated in a durable tasteful black. The Rocky Road deluxe control arm kits offer the very best components on the planet. The Rocky Road control arms are for the Jeeper that wants only the best with the highest standards for quality and performance.
