Toyota Hilux Vigo 2005-15 N70 KUN26 Upper Control Arms
Ideal to maximise suspension lift after a body lift
After fitting a body lift, many people want to fit the biggest tyres available. This has a substantial impact on the wheel alignment of the Toyota Hilux. The solution to this is to fit after market Hilux upper control arms (Commonly called Hilux UCA's) that correct both the camber and caster. In Australian conditions it is critical that the ball joints on Hilux upper control arms are protected with a ruibber boot. In Australia, experience has shown that exposed uniball styleball joints fitted to some Hilux UCA's have a very short service life. It is also desirable that there is additional adjustment in Hilux upper control arms to correct the caster. Avoid the exposed uniball type ball joint as they are a high maintenance part designed for offroad racing conditions where they are considered a consumable part.
The Hilux UCA's in this listing meet all of the criteria a quality Hilux upper control arm must meet.
This is a proven offroad product that not only corrects camber but also offers 7 positions for the top ball joint to alter caster as much as 4.0 degrees. Essential for high lift situations, these upper control arms will allow perfect wheel alignment for lifted vehicles whilst also allowing fitment of positive offset rims that reduces wheel turning radius. This in turn reduces the clearance issues around the guards and body mounts. By adding more caster, more clearance is achieved at the rear of the wheel . Now supplied complete with a greasable upper ball joint (not shown in the listing). So in summary these upper control arms for the Toyota Hilux:
Correct camber after a fitting a suspension lift
Correct caster by as much as 4 degrees after fitting a suspension lift
Provide more clearance between the tyre and upper control arm to permit the use of narrower offsets which also enhance wheel clearance at the rear of the tyre
Provide more clearance between the tyre and body mount to avoid or minimise further modifications (eg. body mount chop)
