DESCRIPTION

Looking to run larger tires on your Can-Am Defender?

 

Thumper Fab has you covered with their Can-Am Defender Boxed Front Forward Control Arms for the Cab, Lone Star, X MR, and 65” wide models (check model fitment guide below). These arms are the STRONGEST control arm ever made for a Can-Am Defender, and they'll move your front tires forward to accommodate a larger tire size. Our patent pending control arm design allows for using your OEM ball joints, TF Elite 300M Ball Joints, or Uniballs. Ready for portals and BIG wheel and tire combinations.  

 

EASY INSTALLATION

 

We offer professionally installed bushings and ball joints for easy installation. When you select the options below, we take the hassle out of pressing in your bushings and ball joints yourself. Utilizing our precision press operation, we are able to ensure your bushings and ball joints are correctly installed and not hammered or pressed in a way that would reduce their quality and lifespan.  

 

OEM Bushings – We offer OEM bushings for a high level of quality, vibration, and harshness control.  

 

Uniball – Our uniball bearing replaces the use of a ball joint for extreme levels of performance and strength. Commonly used in harsh racing conditions. This ball joint delete design is the strongest control arm on the market for the Defender. Period!  

 

TF ELITE Ball Joints – Looking for the strongest, most durable ball joint on the market? Look no further than Thumper Fab's ELITE ball joints! These ball joints are made from 300M steel for maximum strength and wear resistance. They are also adjustable and greaseable for easy maintenance. Plus, they come with a lifetime warranty for your peace of mind. So if you're looking for the best of the best when it comes to ball joints, choose Thumper Fab's ELITE ball joints. You won't be disappointed! 

 

Reuse bushings and ball joints – You also have the option to reuse your OEM bushings and ball joints. Maybe your Defender is brand new or in great shape. Our patent pending control arms allow the choice to reuse your OEM hardware. We do recommend professional installation and the use of a press to ensure your original equipment can be removed and installed without damage. 

  

 

INSTALLATION & TIRE SIZE NOTES 

We have tested fitment with multiple tire sizes up to a 35” tire. Varying tire sizes from manufacturers may require the use of a wheel spacer or larger offset wheel for proper clearance.
