Low-Friction Control Arm Mount Kit

Elephant Racing's proprietary-design Low-Friction Control Arm Mounts allow for free control arm movement, eliminating any potential for binding. Elephant Racing has corrected a key factory design limitation; their mounts self-align in all axis, becoming collinear to avoid binding as the arm moves through its range of motion. The kit includes everything required to upgrade one car. Factory rear mounts are replaced with their self-aligning mounts. Factory front mounts are retained and augmented with self-aligning washers.

Replace your tired suspension bushings with Elephant's original equipment-type rubber replacements to restore original ride and performance. Front control arm rubber bushings are now available as a kit for self-installation. In addition to a complete set of 4 rubber bushings, the kit includes their proprietary installation tools and instructions which are essential for successful installation. You'll need a sturdy pipe clamp or shop press to complete the install.

De-Cambered Ball Joints

Need more camber? Elephant Racing's proprietary-design De-Cambered Ball Joints provide up to 3/4 degree additional negative camber per side. Track is widened up to 1/2 inch.

The ball joint stud is non-concentric with the housing, effectively lengthening the control arm and pushing the bottom of the strut (and tire) out resulting in added negative camber.

Construction includes a true spherical bearing monoball for low-friction, freedom of movement and zero deflection.

Fully weather-sealed, De-Cambered Ball Joints are a true bolt-in using factory ball joint hardware.

Hub-Centric Wheel Spacers

Brey-Krause's wheel spacers are precision engineered to fit the wheel to the hub with the best possible accuracy. All sizes include the Porsche style hub-centric locking fingers to interface with the rear hub and notches on the back for easy removal of the spacers. The spacers are sold by the pair and are made of anodized 6061-T6 aluminum. For the thicker spacers, longer studs may be necessary (not included).

Elephant Racing Lightweight Strut Braces

Made from sturdy aluminum tubing, these braces are tapered and terminated with quality rod-end fittings for precise alignment, adjustability and rigidity. Adjustable pre-load allows you to dial in a bit of extra camber if desired. All required mounting hardware is included.

Rennline Strut Braces

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve your car's handling is the installation of a Rennline strut tower brace. These braces bridge both shock towers, eliminating virtually all camber change that occurs during hard cornering. Not all cars are the same so Rennline has made there braces fully adjustable, allowing you to set a desired amount of pre-stress. Constructed of lightweight aircraft grade aluminum with stainless steel brackets. Rennline strut tower braces bolt in and out in minutes and require no drilling. Whether you're on the street or on the track you'll feel the difference immediately.

Also designed to work in conjunction with Rennline front monoballs, the 2-point strut brace is an excellent cost-saving alternative for owners who wish to maximize front trunk space. The 2-point brace requires no drilling to install, will not change your alignment settings, and is manufactured out of aircraft-quality aluminum with TIG welded stainless steel brackets. The 2-point brace weighs 1.4 pounds.

Rennline has designed a 3-point strut brace specifically to work with the Rennline front monoballs and create an integrated front suspension system unavailable anywhere else on the market. The new 3-point strut brace bolts directly to the tops of the front monoballs, locking exceptional rigidity into your front suspension and dramatically reducing camber changes in hard cornering and braking. Unlike other 3-point strut braces which anchor to flimsy trunk sheet metal, the diagonal bar of the Rennline brace bolts to the mounting studs used to attach the brake booster, which is one of the strongest locations on the front of a 911. For 911's with power brakes, the Rennline integrated monoball strut brace is truly a bolt-in system, requiring no drilling. Installation of these strut braces will not change your alignment settings. Both upper and lower bars are fully adjustable, allowing you to set desired pre-load, and manufactured out of aircraft-quality aluminum and TIG welded stainless steel brackets. The complete assembly weighs only 2.6 pounds.
