When it comes to vehicle handling and suspension performance, modifications matter. Anytime a vehicle is lifted or leveled the original suspension geometry design is now different than the factory specification. An easy solution is to add an upper control arm that accounts for and corrects the modified suspension back within those original standards. But what if you want something a little bit more robust with added performance, for that you should consider a pair of Tuff Country‘s new uni-ball upper control arms made of boxed steel construction.
These hand-fabricated boxed upper control arms with uni-ball pivots are a step up from Tuff Country’s standard tubular upper control arms with ball joints. Tuff Country touts its new uni-ball boxed upper control arms offer more articulation, increased travel, less binding, and more robust construction and hardware.
During the 2023 SEMA Show, Kelly Davis, General Manager for DPI Off-Road and parent company to Tuff Country, shared with us a few of the new product highlights. To go along with the Tuff Country uni-ball upper control arms, they have developed a line of 2.5-inch remote reservoir rebuildable shocks with adjustable compression inputs. These robust shocks will come in front and rear configurations to compliment the Tuff Country off-road suspension kits for various vehicle makes and models.
As a well-established brand within the off-road industry, Tuff Country has been building quality suspension products for over 25 years. So it is safe to say these guys know more than a thing or two about off-road vehicles and performance suspension. Taking a good look at the products on display verifies quality without compromise.
Tuff Country Boxed Upper Control Arms Are Off-Road Ready
Currently, Tuff Country is offering its new boxed upper control arms for Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, and Ford Bronco applications. Coming in early 2024, they will have the new arm designs for Ford and GM platforms. And of course, they have dozens of other tubular upper control arm products for most-popular vehicle applications in both uni-ball and standard ball joint pivots.
Tuff Country EZ-Ride Suspension’s uni-ball upper control arms for lifted trucks reduce binding that can be caused by standard ball joints, while also providing additional suspension travel. A great addition to an existing 2-inch to 4-inch suspension lift kit (vehicle must be equipped with factory steering knuckles). Also available as an option in complete lift kits for some Tacoma, Tundra, F150, Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500 models.
