Re: New Option for Upper A-Arms for our WK's

With UCA's on a lowered jeep, that would allow you to lower it more correct? I have heard that with the new coilovers the limiting factor for how low you can go is that the UCA's hit the fender. Would these sit a little lower or regular height? Thanks.

Re: New Option for Upper A-Arms for our WK's

I spoke with Marlin this week about the lowered WK A-Arms and he said they sent out a prototype to the tester and found out they are too short. My truck is about 2.5 hrs away from their shop, so maybe I'll see if they need to borrow one to measure and test fit a set on. Either way, progress is coming along with them.

Re: New Option for Upper A-Arms for our WK's

So what exactly would this new upper control arm do for my lowered WK?

It will properly align the hub so you can get your truck into the specified alignment specs. Our front tires are very prone to splitting especially when the front camber is not set properly. The book says -.80 for the front, but it has been shown that -.25 is best option, still good cornering and better front tire wear.

Your truck reminds me of a Range Rover sport.

I don't know, it's just what comes to mind when I see your truck. It's not an insult or anything just an opinion. I really like the color combo though, it goes really well together.
