im not sure, but i think upper control arms = upper A arms. Same part just different names.

The only thing in the picture that I don't recognize are the things with the circles in them. Are those new coil buckets?

ya i believe thats exactly what they are because i called rcd cuz i figured if anyone could answer the horrid question it would be them they said that extended UPPER A ARMS wernt as easy to align and the replacement coil buckets made it simpler and you would less likely knock your front end outta align

any one got any comments about this?

I don't know how that keeps the upper balljoint from binding unless their spindle is physically longer than the stock one, in which case it would change the entire front suspension geometry

actually after I looked at the picture again, It looks as if the top of the spindle is angled to keep the balljoint from binding
