The Lowdown On Rekudo 3” Drop Control Arms For 1972-1993 Dodge Trucks


The undeniably classic lines of square body Dodge trucks need little help in the looks department. A fat set of wheels coupled with a couple of inches off the ride height can really do wonders. However, finding quality parts to properly sink that suspension lower had been a struggle until Rekudo recently released their 3” drop lower control arms for 1972 to 1993 D100 and D150 pickups (P/N RK100-27).

Rekudo, part of the Holley performance brands group, continues to fill out the suspension category of the catalog with a selection of shock absorbers, brakes, sway bars, coil springs, and control arms for a steadily-growing group of applications.

While D100 Dodges might not be the most sought-after in the old car scene, there is absolutely a market for go-fast goodies as a fair amount of solid examples are still around.

The benefit of Rekudo’s arms is that installers get a meaty 3” drop without sacrificing a factory ride quality. There are other more “creative” ways to lower a front end, but having the stance built in to the arm has to be the safest and most straightforward.

Each pair includes all new bushings, ball joints, hardware, and a black E-coated finish. A simple yet thorough instruction sheet is just one page long, but details teardown, installation, and torque specifications.

We’re guessing your pickup could go from grandpa to grocery-getter in just a single Saturday afternoon.
