Front Upper control arms
With the rear work done, it was time to start on the front. I had some tweaks to get done for Moab. The new wheels required a bit more lift to clear at full stuff. I contemplated on larger bump stops, but the travel is already minimal on these IFS setups. Decided to get the extra 1/2" lift using the coil over springs.
This threw the camber out of whack, and maxed out the adjustments. Still had negative camber to deal with. The stock UCA's are shorter then the lower's, and it is physically impossible to get good camber set, once you reach a certain height, using coil springs for lift.
The answer was longer UCA's made by BTF. These DOM tube Uniball arms are as strong as they get. I had them make mine 1/2" longer then they normally do. This allowed my upper 4* cams to rest in the middle for maximum adjustment both directions. Using a dead blow to get them installed was simple. The 1.25" Uniball is replaceable, and is grease-less. It has an inner Teflon seal.
They come in rattle can gun metal gray from BTF. I had to change that. Stripped with thinner, and POR15 was applied. I added a little bit of custom flare to the BTF logo, to make them pop more then they already did.
Lift it! Keeps the big girls out.
