About Control Arms
A Land Rover control arm is most likely situated at the front of the vehicle (though occasionally, there are some control arms in the rear) and connects the front suspension of the vehicle to its frame using bushings and is attached to the wheels through ball joints. There are typically two control arms on a vehicle, but some will have four.
The Land Rover control arm plays a key part in the vehicle’s suspension system as it is responsible for allowing tyres to move up and down freely and in line with the vehicle’s body. If a control arm needs replacing, the ride would be noticeably less smooth.
When a Land Rover control arm wears down and needs to be replaced you may notice that your tyres are not wearing evenly, or wear quickly. It is also possible that a Land Rover control arm may break if you drive over a large pothole or bump. In either of these events, the control arm should be replaced. It is also common for bushes and ball joints to be replaced at the same time if wear and tear is the cause.
After replacing a control arm your wheels should also be aligned.
Land Rover trivia
- One of the most unique vehicles ever was the floating SUV designed and built by Land Rover. Unfortunately, the Floating Ninety Defender led many drivers to believe that their own Land Rovers could also float, and many cars were driven into lakes as a result.
- In the 1950s, you could buy yourself a Land Rover with tank tracks instead of wheels. Known as the Cuthbertson Version, it was intended for use by farmers and was tested by driving across the Scottish Highlands.
- Although the first Land Rover was designed in 1947 (by Maurice Wilks), the company wasn't actually founded until 1978!
- Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
- According to the film, Judge Dredd (1995), Land Rover will be the last ever car manufacturer in the world. The car company had a heavy presence in the film, and you can still see some film versions of the car driving around the UK.
