JK Upper Control Arm Kit! DIY

These take your weak and hardly flexible upper links and make them strong AND Highly Flexible!


KIT INCLUDES:
2--14" of 1.5" X .25" wall DOM tubing
2--3/4" X 3/4" Bore Heat & Cryo Treated Chromoly Heims
2--3/4" Tube Adapters (1" Tube ID)
2--3/4" Jam Nuts
4--3/4" to 1/2" Stainless Steel Misalignment Spacers

This kit is designed for two things. The first is it comes with 2 pieces of 1.5" x .25" DOM tubing to sleeve over your existing upper link arm and make it a lot stronger than stock. The second is it comes with two 3/4" heims to replace the upper bushings and allow your suspension to flex more than it had before.

Notes: The OD of your stock link is powder coated and might need to be ground off a little to slide the DOM over it.
Welding is required and should be done by a professional.

Here is what you start with and how to go about it!



You replace this bushing end with the Heim Joint...



And you put the pieces together and end up with this!



Weld'em and get more articulation and less expectation of bending them

If yours are already bent just cut them off shorter. The tube you use to replace the factory 1" x .120" wall is 1.5" x .25" wall and almost 3.5 times stronger so cutting them off shorter would never be a problem.

It's been a little while! These kits are still selling, and it is time to make this simple and easy upgrade that gets you so much extra strength!

These are an easy way to get the performance of a Heim, while still keeping the stock bushing for a little comfort on the axle side.

An easy way to make your stock arms a lot stronger, and a little bit longer if you want.

Inexpensive, and a serious strength upgrade.

It doesn't always take big bucks to have heavy duty control arms, you can do it on a budget and still have real strength!
