Looking for tubular upper control arms for a 4X4

Title says it all.

I've search the net and only found them for 2wd.

I'm looking for lighter weight & more turning clearance for my C5 wheels.

Any ideas??

Superlift and Rough Country sell them as part of their 2" lift kit. You might have to buy the whole kit and just use the control arms. Also, I think that Synergy Offroad sells just the control arms.

Rough Country
Quote:
Upper control arms with a newly redesigned ball joint mounting location [Improves ball joint operating angle]
Likely NOT suitable for a lowered truck, angles would work against me.

Superlift
Doesn't say what their arms are but likely the same deal.

Also I'm needing more clearance for my wide wheels. I may just have to make them myself. <sigh>

Thanks

Re: Looking for tubular upper control arms for a 4X4

Yes a complete coil over suspension would be sweet.

I'll start busting my piggy bank open this afternoon.

Was hoping for some sort of a half way point on this. Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet on this and go all or nothing.

Re: Looking for tubular upper control arms for a 4X4

call tony at ub machine. he custom made a set of uppers for a tall ball joint swap on a 2wd that he now sells, and may be able to help you out for about 150-200 bucks.

hope that helps. tell him michael crawford at hellbilly hotrods sent you.

3.4 MPFI DIS swap, 5 speed swap, autometer gauges, tall ball joints, 3/5, and nowhere near stock anywhere else either.

its a spec miata with a bed.
