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.


  • 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.

Our control arms are designed to be direct replacements for the original factory parts.  They are 100% brand new and require no modifications for installation.  No special tools are required because all of the bushings come pre-installed.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
are these better then the ones with adjustable bolts? i see in the video to install that these are not the ones you took off.
Jobe L July 3, 2017
These are actually 2 different parts for 2 different types of front ends. First look at what is under your vehicle so you can choose the correct part. Hope this helps.
Bryan B July 3, 2017
They are slightly simpler. I have had a good experience with them.
Britain R July 3, 2017
I have installed both of these on my 99 AWD Ford Explorer. The driver side is part # 1ASFK01905 and the passenger side is the 1ASFU00006. The passenger side was easier and only took about ten minutes.
Jeffrey S July 3, 2017
I have a 09ford ranger, I bought the ones that look the the ones that came off the truck. In my non professional opinion I would feel better putting ones back on that are a direct bolt back on.
B R July 3, 2017
For me it was an easier install and the end result was as good as the original . Noticed no difference.
Albert N July 3, 2017
I went with this style due to the one piece design. As a mail carrier, the 2 piece oem would get knocked out of position causing additional costs to realign. I also found installation to be much easier with this design. Hope this helps.

Ordered these online and it couldnt 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

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.

So far, so good
These control arms were a perfect fit in my 2002 Ford Ranger. I havent 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!

1st timer
I recently purchased a set of upper control arms for my Ford Ranger. They arrived on time and were a perfect match. The ease of ordering and their pricing couldnt be better.

Upper Control Arm
Things I’ve ordered from them have gotten here in the estimated time but more often then not sooner! There’s just something about putting new quality parts on your vehicle, you can’t beat it!

Nice Product.
This was a nice set of upper control arms. They replaced the two piece on the passenger side with no alignment issues. The video made it ez to follow and install. Very satisfied! Next tie I have to replace, will look for the ‘greaseable’ type.

Great parts
