ORW/Upper Control Arm Buyers Guide

Adding Upper Control Arms to our Toyota 4Runners has a couple of benefits to this upgrade. First off, The OEM bushings mounted towards the frame of the truck is upgraded to Custom Machined Polyurethane Bushings which has LESS deflection than the soft OEM rubber, this increases handling performance giving you a tighter steering response. Secondly, Both the Geometry to clear the coil buckets along with increased castor and Strength of the Chromoly Arms make it stronger than stock. Finally, Additional downtravel is gained when pairing these upper control arms with an extended coilover.


Off Road Warehouse offers Name Brands such as Total Chaos, ICON, and Dirt King Fabrication. We are DIRECT and AUTHORIZED to be a dealer for their products. What that means is that we get the parts FAST and at a GREAT PRICE!! All these brands are a REPUTABLE companies and have options for your Toyota 4Runner/FJ. I have featured all the brands and options below.




Toyota Uniball Upper Control Arm
  • 4130 chromoly tubular upper control arms are 100% bolt on and hand crafted in the U.S.A.
  • UCA's are designed with added caster to aid in retaining factory alignment specs when aftermarket lift kits are installed. This reduces the darting or wandering in the vehicle's steering when 2.5"-3" lift kits are installed.
  • CNC machined tapered spindle adapters convert the factory ball joint to a 1" uniball for added component strength & maximum wheel travel.
  • TOTAL CHAOS includes 1" I.D. uniballs that feature a heat treated stainless steel ball & heat treated stainless steel race for maximum corrosion resistance and component longevity. These uniball's also features a military grade PTFE woven fabric liner that helps prevent noise.
  • Custom profile upper and lower hi-misalignment spacers maximize droop wheel travel and are machined from heat treated 17-4 stainless steel.
  • Upper control arms combined with extended length coil over shocks will allow for up to 1" of additional wheel travel.
  • Urethane bushings reduce bushing deflection compared to stock rubber bushings.
  • Control arm pivots include zerk fittings to grease the urethane bushings & inner sleeves without disassembly.
  • 2 stage powder coat process includes a durable clear coat to provide a long lasting finish.
  • Complete grade 8 hardware kit is included.

  • Heim upper control arms are fully adjustable to allow maximum tuning of caster and camber.
  • Designed for use on 6" or higher drop bracket lift kits.



Overview:

ICON Vehicle Dynamics has developed a tubular uniball upper control arm system for the 2003+ Toyota 4Runner 2wd or 4wd. Weak OEM ball joints present problems by limiting suspension travel, especially when using our 2.5” VS Series performance coil-over shocks. Using 1” PTFE Lined Uniballs combined with our 17-4 Stainless Taper Pin Adapters increases the upper arms misalignment, allowing for smooth and clean wheel travel without worrying about factory ball joint bind.



Key Features:

• 1026 DOM Seamless Tubing
• CNC Bent Tubing
• CNC Machined Bushing Housings and Sleeves
• CNC Machined Uni-ball Cup
• 1" Stainless PTFE Lined Uniball Bearings
• 17-4 High Grade Stainless Steel Uni-ball Adapter Pin
• High Precision CNC Machined Pin Provides OEM Like Fitment
• Professionally Precision Welded

System Components Included:

• Tubular Uniball Control arms
• Dual Stage Bushing Kit
• Necessary hardware
• Installation instructions

--------------------------------------------------------------------


Overview:

ICON Vehicle Dynamics has developed an on vehicle adjustable billet aluminum upper control arm system for the 07+ Toyota FJ Cruiser platform. These trucks were designed and built for on or off-road use, but have plenty of room for improvement like any factory vehicle. The weak OEM ball joints present problems by limiting usable suspension travel. The new billet aluminum arms use 1” PTFE lined all stainless uniballs combined with our 17-4 stainless taper pin adapters to increase the upper arms misalignment, allowing for smooth bump and droop wheel travel without worrying about factory ball joint bind. You can maximize your available wheel travel by combining these uniball arms with our 2.5 extended travel coil over shocks. This billet aluminum uniball upper controla arms with our ICON 2.5 coil over shocks will make a huge increase in the performance and handling of your Toyota FJ Cruiser. Unique to no other FJ upper control arm on the market, these have on vehicle adjustable rod ends to allow for easy alignment adjustment in minutes not hours. That means no taking the arms on and off to adjust them, you simply loosen the pinch bolts, adjust to your liking, and re-tighten the the pinch bolts. Our upper control arm system also has a o-ring sealed cover cap to keep dirt and weather elements from collecting on top of the uniball, which ultimately leads to tearing up the PTFE liner causing you to replace them prematurely.




Key Features:

• 6061 Billet Aluminum
• Precision CNC Machined
• 1” PTFE Lined all Stainless Uniballs
• Easily Adjustable on the Vehicle for Perfect Wheel Alignments
• 17-4 High Grade Stainless Steel Uni-ball Adapter Pin
• High Precision CNC Machined Pin Provides OEM Like Fitment
• Forged PTFE Lined 3/4” Rod Ends
• O-ring sealed uniball cover cap
• Made in the USA

Tech Info:

Fits 2wd & 4wd Applications
Factory Wheels & Tires: Yes
Aftermarket Wheels & Tires: 17" or larger wheels with max 5" back space

Dirt King Fabrication Bushing Upper Control Arms



Overview:
There are multiple issues when lifting your vehicle with stock upper control arms. Both the geometry and strength are compromised due to over articulating the UCA’s. We solved these problems by designing our arms with increased castor and repositioned pivot angles reducing stress on the joints. The increased castor allows for proper alignment and improved handling. We have also replaced the weak factory ball joints with 1” stainless steel uniballs for maximum strength along with increased articulation. For the inner pivots we used durable urethane bushings with zerk fittings for easy servicing. To mount the arms to the spindle we include high grade 17-4 stainless steel misalignment spacers and grade 8 hardware. All of the components on our upper control arms are rebuild-able or replaceable to make this product last a lifetime. The arms come pre-assembled and include detailed instructions for easy installation.

Item #: DK-811902 $699.00


Compatibility:
Toyota Tacoma 2WD/4WD 2005-Current (6 lug)
Toyota FJ-Cruiser 2WD/4WD 2007-Current
Toyota 4Runner 2WD/4WD 2003-Current
Toyota Hilux 2WD/4WD 2005-Current
Toyota Prado 120 2WD/4WD 2003-2009
Toyota Prado 150 2WD/4WD 2009-Current
Lexus GX 470 2WD/4WD 2003-2009

Dirt King Boxed Heimed Upper Control Arms







Overview:
There are multiple issues when lifting your vehicle with stock upper control arms. Both the geometry and strength are compromised due to over articulating the UCA’s. We solved these problems by designing our arms with increased castor and repositioned pivot angles reducing stress on the joints. The increased castor allows for proper alignment and improved handling. We have also replaced the weak factory ball joints with 1” stainless steel uniballs for maximum strength along with increased articulation. For the inner pivots we used heavy duty FK heims for additional adjustability in the arm. To mount the arms to the spindle we include high grade 17-4 stainless steel misalignment spacers and grade 8 hardware. All of the components on our upper control arms are rebuild-able or replaceable to make this product last a lifetime. The arms come preassembled and include detailed instructions for easy installation.


DK-811903 $749.00

Includes:
  • CAD Designed upper control arms
  • Urethane bushings
  • Grease fittings for easy servicing
  • FK 1" Stainless Steel Uniballs
  • 17-4 Stainless steel misalignment spacers
  • Zinc plated bushing washers
  • Grade 8 Mounting Hardware
  • Brushed Stainless Steel Logo Plates for that finishing touch
  • Durable Black Powder Coated finish


Yes there are OPTIONS to choose from. Some trucks are built different from the factory and have different alignment tolerances or can differ from the stock coil bucket. When the Lower Control Arm CAM bolt is maxed out and caster/camber needs to be adjusted then you might upgrade to a HEIMED UCA. Call us if you have any questions. We are HERE to help!!
