Superior Hybrid Radius Arms with Drop Boxes

Introducing the Generation 2.0 Superior Engineering Hybrid Radius Arms with Drop Boxes.

DESIGN OBJECTIVES

These Hybrid Radius Arms and drop boxes are designed to suit GQ and GU Nissan Patrol four wheel drive vehicles.

The problem with the standard Nissan radius arm design is that the rear pin style mounting puts a lot of load on the mushroom bushes when the arms flex down.

This causes the bush to be torn and fail, leading to bad or unsafe handling and steering, premature wear of the arm and sometimes contact of the arm with the chassis.

To eliminate this problem in the standard Nissan radius arms, superior engineering utilize a Toyota style rear bush.

This design change allows increased life from the rear bush, by allowing the arm to rotate down without the binding found in the pin style design, whilst allowing increased flex and articulation in the arms when off road.

Superior Engineering hybrid radius arm are also available with the patented Superflex bush configuration which have the most available flex of any radius arm available for direct fitment to Nissan and Toyota 4wds.

Superior Engineering are so confident that fitting Superflex arms will allow you to get more flex than your original or aftermarket Radius Arms, that they are offering a 100% money back Guarantee!

Hybrid drop box design is by far the most efficient and compact available with the lowest point being less than 30mm below the crossmember giving them up to 40mm better ground clearance than some competitors.

These drop boxes are a straight bolt in design and feature tapered leading and trailing edges to aid in sliding up and over even the toughest of obstacles.

The rear of the mount even pockets snugly against the gearbox crossmember for support and smooth styling, as well as maximum clearance.

One of the greatest design features is also the increase in arm length which is achieved by having the rear bush mounting point further back in the drop box.

This allows for a reduction in anti-squat on lifted vehicles which allows the suspension to soak up the biggest bumps with ease!

All these features combine to give you the best ride and the most articulation of any Hybrid style drop box kit available.

BENEFITS

Another feature that sets these new Hybrid radius arms apart from all other brands is that all generation 2 arms will be constructed from HIGH TENSILE grade 32mm thick, high strength steel plate – AS STANDARD, making them the strongest off the shelf radius arms available.

This material is used extensively in the mining industry and is known worldwide for its amazing impact strength.

Adding to the benefits of premium material, the shape of the new Generation 2 arms has been increased at the chassis bush end to provide up to 30% increase in strength in areas that can contact rocks or obstacles, ensuring that you will get the strongest arms available.

The arms come ‘ready to fit’ with direct bolt-in drop boxes, full OE style rubber bushes pressed in and also all the required bolts and fitting instructions.

Superior Engineering arms are fitted with genuine OE bushes or our own brand bush that is proven to last longer than OE.

We even guarantee these bush’s to last by offering the ONLY manufacturer warranty on bush’s used for lifted application.

All of these great features combine to give you a radius arm package with amazing flex, great drivability and the longest life from your bushes, guaranteed!
