If you install a 4x4 lift kit into your 4WD then it is highly recommended that you install a SuperPro 4x4 upper control arm kit to solve both alignment and clearance issues that arise when lifting a vehicle.
SuperPro 4x4 Control Arm kits will provide your 4WD with the best solution.
Issues you will face if you lift your 4WD without a SuperPro upper control arm!
- Your wheel alignment will never be correct
- Your wheels will wear much faster than normal
- Increased costs when driving
- Potentially unsafe driving situations, especially when braking
Not Every lifted 4WD needs to have a control arm or alignment bush fitted (False).
This is incorrect, for every inch a vehicle is lifted or lowered the alignment of the vehicle is permanently changed. So, in order to provide the best solution to our customers we must sell them a control arm or alignment correction bushing with every lift kit sold. We recommend a pair of SuperPro 4x4 control arms (they come as a complete kit) as this is the best option to return the vehicles alignment to the correct position.
You can get a good enough wheel alignment without a control arm (False).
This is incorrect, once a vehicle has been lifted the suspension geometry is permanently changed from Original Equipment (OE) factory specifications. Typically there is not enough adjustment available in the lower arm to correct and gain back the lost castor and camber after the vehicle is lifted. Meaning that its alignment will never be the same as OE unless a physical offset adjustment is made. In this case a SuperPro 4x4 control arm kit or SuperPro offset bushing is required.
What is the purpose of an upper control arm?
An upper control arm directs the movement of the suspension hub or upright as the suspension travels. An upper control in turn helps hold and align the vehicles suspension geometry.
Do I need adjustable upper control arms?
If you lift your 4WD, altering your vehicles geometry, then yes you will need adjustable upper control arms. An aftermarket control arm, when designed correctly like SuperPro 4x4 Control arms, will correct alignment and inherent clearance issues that arise when you lift or modify the suspension of your 4WD.
What do aftermarket adjustable upper control arms do?
Aftermarket control arms like SuperPro 4x4 control arms are designed to be stronger than OE to perform in harsh off-road conditions. SuperPro 4x4 control arms are also designed to solve alignment issues offering full adjustability to both camber and caster. They also help fix clearance issues when fitting larger wheels.
When Does my IFS 4WD Need Adjustable Upper Control arms?
When an IFS 4WD’s suspension is changed the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) control arms no longer have the adjustability to account for clearance and alignment changes. Meaning if you lift your vehicle with an OEM control arm you will have alignment and clearance issues. To fix these issues you should fit a pair of SuperPro 4WD Control Arms.
