Coldwater, MI: BDS Suspension adds to its lineup of heavy duty upper control arms (UCA) with new kits available for the 2014-2018 Chevy/GMC 1500 model trucks equipped with stamped steel and aluminum control arms. These UCAs are designed for improved strength, great looks, and increased suspension travel out of your stock, leveled or lifted GM 1500 vehicle. These UCAs join the existing #121151 arms for 2007-2016 GM1500 applications with cast steel to offer full coverage for all 2014-2018 GM1500 models regardless of factory configuration.
These performance control arms are built from high strength 1.5″ OD x .120-wall steel tubing and feature an indexed ball joint cup to correct the ball joint positioning for when used with leveling or full lift kits. The frame mounting ends feature durometer-specific rubber bushings. At the other end premium quality ball joints for smooth, quiet operation and superior durability to arms that feature uniballs, poly bushings or heims. These upper control arms come finished in a durable semi-gloss black powder coat and include a billet aluminum machined ball joint dust cap. They integrate a mounting tab for the factory brake lines so there’s no need to zip tie the lines as is the case with other kits on the market. The control arms come fully assembled for easy install right out of the box compatible with most leveling and lift kits on the market to increase wheel travel. Also included with the UCAs are a pair of optional weld-on steering stops plates (if necessary) and a wheel spacer to allow installation of the factory wheel in the event the OE wheel needs to be installed. Take your Chevy/GMC 1500 to the next level with these performance upper control arms from BDS Suspension.
