CDS Right Front Lower Wishbone
FITS THE FOLLOWING MODELS:
These are a very high specification replacement wishbone.
The tube used is a top quality CDS (Cold Drawn Steel) instead of ERW (Electrical Resistance Welded Tube) which has a welded seam along the centre.
CDS is inherently stronger than ERW as there is no seam so we can reduce the wall thickness without reducing the strength .
In fact our wishbones are slightly stronger than the original but not to the extent where the chassis could get damaged prior to the wishbone as you want the “weakest link” to be a relatively cheap part to replace should you have an encounter with a kerb or large pot-hole.
All of our wishbones are TIG ( Tungsten inert gas) welded rather than the messy MIG (Metal Inert Gas) which forms a stronger bond to the metals and gives a cleaner pristine finish.
TIG welding was introduced within the aircraft industry some 60 years ago and still is used in this industry and in F1 race technology today (albeit with much more modern machinery and consumables).
TIG welding is less prone to stress cracking and distortion whereas MIG welding can cause porosity which can weaken the joints.
This takes more than twice as long to TIG weld the wishbones but we think it is worth the extra benefits TIG welding gives.
Once the wishbones have been welded they are then lightly bead blasted to give a nice key for the black Xylan coat finish.
All of our wishbones have new ball joints pre installed and we also offer the option of 3 types of inner bushes ,Original rubber, polyurethane or ertalon.
The benefits of these bushes can be seen in their separate sections linked here;
