Part Details

  • Quantity: Pair

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.

Item Condition: New

So far, so good
These control arms were a perfect fit in my 2002 Ford Ranger. I haven't put them through any intense stress yet, but as far as I can tell, they work just fine (and at half the part price a shop quoted me!). The video provided by 1A Auto on their YouTube channel was invaluable, and made the swap a cinch. 5/5 stars for the company!

Wrong Parts, Great timing, Great customer service
It was really nice that the parts were able to come so quickly, showed up the day after I ordered them. However, the parts were not the right parts for my vehicle, they still looked like they were in great condition for the correct vehicle that they fit. I called customer service and they helped me return my order with a full refund and refund on return shipping. The customer service agent was very kind and the process was very swift.

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
