Re: upper control arm

You could probably just replace the bushings, but you might want to look into upper control arms that are better suited for the lowering springs you have or else they might tear again.

Do they sell upper control arms for lowered jeeps? Can you buy just the bushings.

Thanks

You could just buy the bushings, but I think the investment in new upper control arms would be worth it.

Here is an example: http://4xguard.com/grand-cherokee-20...ee-a-arms.html

I'm sure there are others out there, they can get a little pricey. Anyways, I hope this helps!

Re: upper control arm

I'm fairly certain you cannot buy just bushings for the OEM UCAs.

Re: upper control arm

Just got a set of JBA UCAs for lifted WKs, man they look rugged! I am sure the lowered version would be a good replacement too .. I like the fact that the ball joints are replaceable on them too .. cant wait to get these bad boys installed!
