Apache HD Fixed Extended OffSet Rear Lower Link Set
Our HD Rear Links are engineered to provide maximum protection against damage, maximize travel, increase rear axle articulation, and correct rear axle alignment when installed on lifted trucks and in long travel applications. Our Upper Control Arms feature an offset design that helps to eliminate binding that is common among many aftermarket brands as well as the factory Control Arms, due to the location and design of the fuel tank on these trucks. . Our Links are ideal for trucks with 2-3.5″ lifts installed and they are KDSS compatible.
Our Offset Design allows for increased clearance, allowing for a substantial reduction in the binding that occurs at full droop where the factor lower link meets the axle.
All of our Rear Control Arms are fabricated out of DOM Heavy Wall Tube; That’s THICKER than the Competition!
1.5″x .375″ DOM Tube
To put this in perspective- Most rock sliders are made out of .120 wall tube, with many brands being made out of Hot Rolled (HREW) tube, which is not as strong as DOM and quite a bit less expensive to use in manufacturing.
Links are Fitted with Apache Multiple Durometer Flex Joints
- Maintenance Free, long lasting, quite design
- Fused PTFE Impregnated Liner- No Grease Needed
- High Corrosion Resistance, Salt and other corrosive used in northern regions are no longer a worry.
- Free Floating Sleeve with Multiple Durometers (Hardness levels) of polyurethane- Designed to provide extreme articulation with zero binding.
- 30 degrees of misalignment
Unlike other links on the market using flex joints, Our flex joints are made specifically for OE mounts; meaning they fit the frame mount without the need to use a washer next to the joint, different hardware, etc. They are not an off the shelf retrofitted joint.
2 Rear Lower Fixed Control Arms / Links
Our Control Arms are fixed to alleviate potential common issues seen in adjustable Control Arms; such as separation caused by a loosening jam nut and improper adjustment which often results in driveline vibrations. Our Control Arms do not require frequent / regular maintenance. Installation is a breeze with no guessing as to where the adjuster needs to be set.

** Installation Notes**
Lower Links- These are directional – The offset end is the axle end, brake line bracket will be angled downward. You are creating space between the link and axle with the offset so that the axle doesn’t make contact with the link at full droop.
