Our Ocap Vw Passat control arm kits are on sale for nearly every 2000-2003 model! Blauparts™ is the Ocap Vw Passat control arm low price leader! The HIGHEST quality in updated improved Ocap Vw Passat suspension components (i.e. control arms, control arm bushings, ball joints, and tie rods), Only from the nation's leading independent Vw Passat control arm parts specialist, Blauparts™.
Most 1998 - on Passat models have a sophisticated multi-link front control arm suspension. The Vw Passat struts are mounted onto the control arm and the integral Passat control arm ball joint is at an upside down installation position.
The weight of a Vw Passat chassis rests on the upper side of the control arm ball joint. Such significant dynamic loads can lead to eventual failure of the control arm bushings hydro filling. Too, due to the force of gravity, the lubricant in the control arm ball joint flows from the upper side downwards into the sealing ring. This loss of lubrication leads to wear and eventual failure of the integral Passat control arm ball joint. Vw Passat Passat owners become aware of this by the front suspension squeaking noise when braking.
Ocap control arm kits are a great replacement option. Ocap of Italy has improved Passat control arms. The materials used in these improved Ocap Vw Passat control arms prove to be a long-term solution for Passat control arm problems. The control arm bushing material is composed of an updated resilient material for improved steering input, handling and durability. Ocap control arm kits also include improved control arm rubber dust boots, made of a high quality material which prevents cracking and exposure of the ball joint as well as better moly grease for less wear and more miles.
