Pfadt Carbon Rear Trailing Arms and Rear Tie Rods

We're working on a Rear Trailing Arm as well as a Rear Tie Rod. They are currently in development and if you're at SEMA you can see them in person! These are the real deal and they weigh less than 50% of the factory unit as well as being over 2x stronger!!!

Rear Carbon Tie Rod


If you're having wheel hop issues I would highly recommend our Engine Mounts, Trans Mount, sub frame mounts and Differential Bushings as this is where most of your movement is coming from. We've found that the tires load and unload which causes the powertrain to load and unload; the soft mounts just weren't designed to handle this variable. Once this happens the relatively soft spring rate and damping can't control the movement. We've worked with a lot of the fastest C5/C6 Corvettes and this has proven to be a winning combination on those platforms.

We're continually developing new products and they will be worth the wait! Please feel free to call or email us anytime to locate a dealer in your area or with tech/set up questions. Have a great day!

Kind regards,

Can't wait to see the pictures working! Looks great, and hopefully they won't be too crazy expensive.

Edit: What is the specific function of tie rods?

Do you have an estimated price point yet?

Haha, dude you don't give up! I've seen you on a couple different forums asking around about that If you find anything out let me know. Carbon fiber drive shaft is on my list of "must do" mods for this car.

The weight of the Carbon units is half of the factory piece and they are 2x stronger. I will get exact #'s from engineering ASAP.
