Toyota Hilux Tough Dog Upper Control Arms
Tough Dog Upper Control arms are designed to return a vehicle's suspension and steering geometry to standard after it has been lifted.
When an IFS vehicle is fitted with a suspension lift, the original caster and camber specifications are pushed outside the acceptable limit. The vehicle loses caster which makes the steering vague, and positive camber is introduced, which contributes to uneven and accelerated tyre wear. While most of this can be adjusted using the factory wheel alignment adjustment points, the geometry of the suspension is not quite the same as OEM.
The Tough Dog UCAs are fixed length and position arms, which guards against the alignment being knocked out of specification by a solid offroad hit.
On top of the alignment issues, clearance problems between the strut and the upper control arm on down travel can also occur. The slim line tubular design of Tough Dog UCAs create the maximum possible clearance.
Tough Dog UCA’s are built tough. The end housings are forged from 1020 grade steel, as is the ball joint housing, which has been specifically crafted with a slim line design to maximise clearance. The bushings are heavy duty, high flex style design requiring no lubrication, for maximum life span in rough terrain. The ball joint is constructed of high strength Chromoly steel.
Tough Dog Upper Control arms can help get the maximum performance and lifespan from your suspension and steering components.
Sold as a pair and suitable for your Toyota Hilux 2005 - 2015 4x4 models.
