Extended Travel Ball Joint Style

Downfalls of lifted IFS vehicles: While providing a much smoother ride and better handling on the road, IFS can be very limited in suspension travel, especially on a lifted vehicle. Driving over rough roads and potholes compounds this problem as the pre-loaded suspension, with fully extend shocks, has no more room for shock travel resulting in poor ride quality and premature shock failure. If you’ve installed or plan to install longer-than-stock shocks for more suspension travel, the Factory upper control arms can become a limiter, as they can contact the shock body, or hyper-extend the ball joint. Proper alignment specs, such as caster can be hard to obtain with stock UCA’s. Furthermore, we have found that many of the desert racing style arms on the market use exposed joints and urethane bushings which tend to squeak and need replaced often when used in 4 seasons conditions.  This is why we are now offering UCA’s that address all these concerns.
