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.

yeah i saw these george, am thinking they may very easily work on the wk too. jeepinbyal make arms for the lifted brothers so maybe this will benefit ALL of us.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
