Control arms and links

For Porsche 996/997

Geometry correction for lowered cars - We've developed a complete line of control arms, toe links, tie rod ends and track arms to provide geometry correction for lowered cars.

This is a complete, fully thought out set of products to provide the adjustability and geometry correction for lowered cars.

Adjustable Lower Control Arms (lower Wishbone)

Elephant Racing adjustable lower control arms provide the camber, caster and precision you need. Length adjustable similar to the factory GT3 control arms, but without the need for shims.

Quick and easy adjustments - No need to keep a stock of shims on hand, length is easily adjusted by rotating the center hex head. Rotate clockwise to expand or counter-clockwise to contract the arm length.

Adjustments can be made within minutes. No shims to mess with. Perfect setup to make quick changes for the track.



Widen track - Use in combination with our camberplates on the front, or our adjustable length arms upper control arms on the rear to widen the track. This allows you to achieve a wider track without altering the scrub radius as happens when using wheel spacers.

Heim Joint - Our spherical bearings eliminate the deflection associated with rubber bushings. These bearings maintain stable suspension alignment, and improve feedback.

Fully weather sealed - Proper boots at both the ball joint and heim joint ends to keep water and contaminants out for extended life. These arms are suitable for extended road and track use.

GT3 Control Arms

Litronic Bracket - This bracket is required for cars that are originally equipped with the litronic headlights. This adapter bracket attaches to the headlight angle sensor.

The arms are fully rebuildable with replaceable heim and ball joints.

GT3 Control Arms

Camber Adjustment - Extended range of adjustment lets you achieve aggressive camber. Or you can dial it back to get a factory street alignment on lowered cars.

Caster Adjustment - Our Caster Adjuster allows you to tune this important setting that the factory left out. A must-have for cars that have extended lower control arms to correct for un-intended caster change that is caused by the extended arms. Rotate the center puck and bolt down to secure the setting.

Center puck can be also used as a wheelbase adjuster on the rear to draw the wheels back to improve weight distribution. It is a great tuning aid for adjusting out understeer.

Caster adjuster is also available separately to be used on existing stock and GT3 control arms.

Adjustable Caster Arms with Anti-Dive / Anti-Squat

Elephant Racing caster arms provide adjustable caster and anti-dive ability when used on the front, and adjustable wheel base, weight distribution, and anti-squat when used on the rear.

Front suspension - Threaded double-adjuster makes it easy to extend or shorten the arm.

This makes for easy caster adjustment - an important adjustment the factory left out. A must-have for cars with GT3 style extendable style lower control arms to correct for un-intended caster increase that is caused by the extended LCAs.

Anti-dive behavior can also be adjusted. Lowering the front of the arm using the provided spacers reduces front dive under braking. Adjustable in 2mm increments.

Rear suspension - Adjustable Caster Arms can reduce rear overhang and rear weight bias. A must-have for cars with GT3 style extendable style lower control arms. Adjust the length of the caster arms to correct the position of the rear wheels that have been drawn forward by aggressive camber settings. Even over-compensate for less rear weight bias than stock.

With the heavy mass of the engine cantilevered behind the rear axle, even small changes in wheel base make significant changes in weight distribution. Shortening the overhang reduces the famous 911 "pendulum" effect in corners.

Adjustable Caster Arm for 996-997

Anti-squat behavior can also be adjusted. Raising the front of the caster arm using the provided spacers reduces rear squat under acceleration. Adjustable in 2mm increments.

Fully weather sealed - Proper boots at the heim joint keep water and contaminant out for extended life.

Fitment Can be used 996 and 997 front and rear. Note: 997 front require GT3 control arms or a 996 central bushing retrofit.

Lowered 966/997 run out of rear toe adjustment range. Our Adjustable rear toe links extend the range of adjustment and add bump steer correction.

Adjustable Length - Threaded double adjuster for easy toe settings.

Angled head - Lower the car and the toe links angle down. This shifts the ball stud from its center and limits the available range of articulation.

We solve this problem by angling the head to move the stud back towards the center of its range of articulation at static ride height.

Bump steer adjustable - The built in bump steer adjustment lets you dial in a minimal bump steer curve.

Fully weather sealed - Proper boots at both the ball joint and heim joint ends to keep water and contaminant out for extended life.

Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arms (Upper Wishbone)

Adjustable rear track rods eliminate the compliant rubber bushings and allow adjustment of track width and kinematic toe.

Fully weather sealed - Proper boots at both heim joint ends to keep water and contaminant out for extended life.
