Custom Trail Boss Upper Control Arms

Recommended Posts

Anybody out there that has done the Motofab under strut level....have you purchased some upper control arms that work good with the new angle.

Factory arms are holding up good, just looking to the future.

ReadyLIFT makes a good level kit for the Trail Boss w/ UCAs

There's nothing wrong with the stock UCAs.  The ball joints still have plenty of articulation.  The only trade-off is the lost droop travel before hitting the stops.  I've hit once when the wheel dropped into a huge pothole at speed....no problem under normal street conditions.

Thanks, I just needed to hear that from others. I look at mine from time to time checking for any abnormal wear. I am happy with the setup.

Yes, a lot of folks jump to the "balljoint angles are bad" conversation when lifting/leveling.  The stock UCAs and balljoints are fine for normal driving.  If you beat the thing off-road, then of course it's going to wear them faster.  But that kind of usage is only seen by maybe 1 or 2% of the members here.
