There is more room on the passenger side to run an upper link.

Super confused. There is 0 play in the upper control arm. I had a friend drive it around today while I watched and it has all kinds of axle wrap but there's no play. Maybe I'm not thinking about it right but it seems like the axle won't rotate on the lca mounts. It has the same effect as if I just welded the control arm to the axle. Could that be my problem?

So you guys think that replacing the upper bushings with Heims would definitely fix my problem? Because I don't wana do it for nothing. Also just for my learning sake could you explain why it would help.

More than likely. It definitely wouldn't hurt anything. You should NEVER run a single upper with a rubber bushing anyways.

A rubber bushing allows to much movement. It may feel tight by hand , but under load it will be soft. And with a single upper it just allows too much movement

Got it. Which of the upper arm bushings is more important to be tight? At the axle or where it connects to the lca?
