These replacement front upper control arms are just what you need to bring back the safety and integrity of your vehicle's suspension and steering.

Specifications:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT UPPER
  • Includes new ball joint and rear bushings
  • Control arm is new, not remanufactured or refurbished

Worn ball joints or loose rear bushings can cause excessive front tire wear, popping or creaking in the front end, extra play in the steering system, and pose a serious safety concern. Replace those heavily rusted, rotted, or damaged front upper control arms with the loose bushings or worn ball joints with our high quality all in one replacements.

One way to diagnose a loose, or warn ball joint on a control arm, is to jack the car up, so the wheel is off of the ground, then have someone try to move the wheel in and out. While they are moving the wheel check the ball joint and bushings for play, if it is moving you probably need to replace it.

Perfect
Ordered these online and it couldn't have been easier. Everything is spelled out for the customer as to the proper fit for the vehicle etc. Shipping was fast and they arrived in their packaging with no damage. Fit perfectly on the vehicle and the installation was easy after watching the videos from 1A Auto. Would highly recommend this product and other products from 1A Auto
