CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

Would like that we start a thread on this topic on this site so that we can discuss and maybe help bring to market. Rose City GC SRT8 had a set made up.

Per Philthy the company's name is Jeepin by Al.

Either of you have any estimate on costs?

I see it needs some bushings pressed in. Should be fun to see if these develop.

A good possible solution for lowered jeeps who can't quite get camber straight in front, and don't want to use revised ball joints because a proposed clearance issue. I am thinking about the ball joints from eibach, but I am interested in this beefed up solution anyway and I like seeing new products come to life.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

they are available now for a little over $450 at jeepinbyal.com and they do work on the non-SRT WK as well. The uCA's are the same on the SRT as the laredo.....no difference.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

the impression I got was he had them ready to ship.......but not sure how many he has fabbed up. I just couldnt justify $450+ to get a perfect alignment when mine is within spec.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

He doesn't have any made up yet. He has made 2 prototype sets and sent them out to 2 different testers. He didn't realize how much interest there was for these. I have spoken with him about producing new steering knuckles so that the guys with coilovers can lower their jeeps more. I had to remove his company's name from the red site so no one got in trouble. Gheyness.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

Are there any threads on this on the garage with pics or more info?

I see the mods finally started their NSV shilling crap on the red site and closed all the threads.

Re: CUSTOM UPPER CONTROL ARMS 4 SRT8s

Well if your having issue with oe arm, then a beefed up arm should give you better handling. Would be nice if they offered (-/+) camber adjustment as well.
