Skunk2 Racing: Lower Control Arm

Edited: Apr 17, 2017

Product Information:

Skunk2's Gold Anodized Rear Lower Control Arms for the 88-95 Civic and CRX, '93-'97 del Sol, and '90-'01 Integra are based off of the same technology the company's been using on its own race cars for more than a decade and are a must-have for enthusiasts looking to fine-tune their suspension for maximum handling performance.

Skunk2's Rear Lower Control Arms are direct replacements, maintain OEM suspension geometry, and are ideal for street and race applications.

Each arm is forged from aircraft-quality 2024 billet aluminum, precision CNC-machined, and is more than 25 percent lighter than the OEM arms. Skunk2 Rear Lower Control Arms also feature adjustable anti-sway bar mounting holes for advanced suspension tuning and optimum balance.

Unfortunately there are dozens of unscrupulous internet vendors that sell counterfeit Skunk2 branded suspension parts. These parts have not been tested by Skunk2for performance or reliability and may fail at a critical time, causing injury or death.

Skunk2 Racing is issuing a customer alert to purchasers of products, particularly via Internet sales, in regards to bogus Skunk2 Racing products that are apparently being illegally imported from overseas. These products bear many of the marks and trade dress of current Skunk2 Racing making them very hard to distinguish externally from authentic Skunk2 Racing products.

Warnings / Hazards:

You are risking your life using untested and unproven counterfeit suspension parts. Counterfeit parts may fail at critical time causing injury or death.

Recommended Action:

Buy authentic Skunk2 products from authorized retailers. Return counterfeit parts to the place of purchase.

If you purchased a counterfeit from an e-commerce website (including eBay, Amazon, AliExpress) keep the counterfeit product as proof for your dispute, the manufacturer or authorities. If returned, the seller will claim it is not counterfeit, or re-sell it to another unsuspecting consumer. Contact your credit-card company and dispute the charges -- you have the counterfeit product as proof. Leave negative "Counterfeit" feedback for the seller.
