High Lifter APEXX Rear Control Arms For Defender Models
Whether you ride in deep mud or over rocky trails, the need for stronger Defender Rear control arms with added ground clearance is extremely important.
Our arms maximize ground clearance by strategically arching the lower control arms while following the angle of the axle for maximum clearance, axle protection, and visual appeal. Don’t be fooled with too much arch that puts your axles into greater risk of damage. Our precision manufacturing process ensures each control arm installs exactly like the factory arm. Depending on the model, most kits will have the High Lifter logo precision cut into the bracing.
Installation is made easy with our step-by-step and multi-image instructions. During installation, you can reuse stock bushings for easy installation.
Always check for bearing, bushing, and brake wear before installation and replace if needed. We always recommend checking these parts before you start your installation to save time and get back on the trail sooner.

Heavy Duty Strength
High Lifter’s new heavy duty control arms add more support than factory. Our upper and lower arms are made with the same material for added strength, so they can withstand the abuse applied during a typical ride.
High Lifter arms are constructed out of 1.5” DOM with .120” wall tubing. This is a 50% increase in size and a 70% increase in steel thickness for added durability and strength.
- 50% larger than average stock arms – Crafted from 1 1/2” x .120” wall thickness DOM steel
- Up to 2.5x the wall thickness of an average stock arms
- Grease fittings included for most models
- Added ground clearance featuring bends that maximize clearance and axle protection
- Most stock powder coat colors available in stock
- Easy to install and maintain
- Limited Lifetime Warranty
- Adjustable heat-treated collars for camber adjustability with a 1” thread
NOTE: MAY REQUIRE 1″ WHEEL SPACERS IF RUNNING FACTORY WHEELS WITH WIDE TIRES. DUE TO THE POSITIVE OFFSET OF FACTORY WHEELS, LARGER LUGS ON MORE AGGRESIVE TIRES MAY RUB AGAINST THE UPPER ARM OR SWAY BAR LINK.
Built in Adjustability
The lower arms also feature an adjustability component in the bushing collars to eliminate premature wearing that can come from the addition of lift kits, portals, or larger tires. When the kit is set to the factory position, you have 3/8” of adjustability camber in and out. Heat treated and plated adjustable bushing collars allow you to be confident in the strength you’re adding to your ride.
This kit comes packaged and preadjusted to the factory position, and factory bushings and caps should be used for installation.
