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

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.

You are right the superlift or roughcountry arms will work against you on the angles.
