Available NOW Mazda 3 Front Control Arms!

Here is a teaser pic of the new Mazda 3 front control arms. Fully camber adjustable with a greaseable balljoint. They will include Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings as well. These are in production now!


Where are my parts?

This is a photo of a typical batch of parts that I pick up from powdercoat every 1-2 weeks.  As you can see there are a few different colors and many different items.

Now what most people dont realize is that I outsource all my products for powdercoat. I have a local shop that does very nice work. The turnaround time varies depending on how busy they are, and/or what colors they are doing. It is not an easy task to change the color in the powdercoat gun for 1 or 2 parts and then change it again to another color. It would not be very efficient or profitable either. You also cannot cure multiple colors in the oven at the same time, or else you risk contamination in the powdercoat.


With that said, depending on what is getting coated at the time, and what color you decide, it can be finished in 1 or 2 days or sometimes almost two weeks or more  if the shop is busy.  All of my parts are custom, made to order, and that takes time. I like to offer that option, because most people want something different, and not the same as everyone else.

I am also overwhelmed with orders and have been operating with a 2-3 week waiting list. That means, depending on your order, it may take 2-3 weeks before your parts will be fabricated and sent out to powdercoat. I am a one-man operation and I handle every step of the process myself. From ordering the raw materials, to cutting, machining, cleaning, welding and checking every item before it gets powdercoated. Then the items get assembled, cleaned, packed and shipped to you. I prefer to handle every step to assure every item is 100% before it leaves my hands.  When you receive your order, I hope you enjoy everything as much as I do during the fabrication process.

Fabrication Pics

Here are some pics that other manufacturers will never dare show you. I actually want everyone to be able to see the quality of the items that I produce.

Here is a detail pic of the notching on one of the tubes. This particular tube gets cut on my Kunzmann horizontal milling machine. As you can see the radius of the notch is absolutely perfect. This means perfect fitment and also makes the welding process come out that much nicer.

Here are some more close up pics of the tubing fitted together. As you can see the edge of the notch is beveled to create a groove that gets filled in with the weld bead. This ensures 100% penetration of the weld into the tubing. These small steps are what it takes to get perfect joints, and a weld that will never fail under its intended use.

You can also see everything gets welded in a fixture to ensure nothing will move or warp. This is the most important part of any welded assembly. The better the joints fit, the less likely the part will be affected by the welding process.
