It’s time to replace the upper control arms. I should have done this long ago, but I had honestly forgotten all about them. I’ll be swapping out the stock UCA’s with Total Chaos UCA’s today and am so excited about this swap. I’ll update this thread once I get started!

are you planning on cutting the UCA bolt and inserting the opposite direction or keeping it the same?
Did you mean cutting the stock one out because it’s a bitch, then replacing with a new one?

Thanks! Installation went well, took a little longer than I anticipated but pretty easy for one person to do. I had some what sounded like low knocking or rubbing at first but the sound is going away the more I drive. Suspect it’s just the UCA’s settling

Can you post more photos of the setup? Any close-ups of the suspension is appreciated. Happy to take a look and make sure everything looks the way it should.

The noise has pretty much gone away. Everything was put back to normal. I still need alignment though. Your video was a huge help! Have you experienced any noise like that post install?

Typically there aren't any noises after install. Alignment will help make sure everything is where it needs to be. You shouldn't experience any issues moving forward, but please contact us if you do.
