Provides More Articulation and Strength with a Quiet Ride
For folks that value long-term reliability and a clean, quiet ride over deflection angles and hardcore off-roading should skip uniball upper control arms and take a look at these BDS Tubular Steel Ball Joint Upper Control Arms. These BDS UCAs combine an extremely strong tubular steel construction with an uprated MOOG Ball Joint that's more durable than the stock ball joint and is installed in an indexed housing that allows for more deflection and articulation than stock that makes it perfect for leveled and lifted 2004-2018 F150s. The BDS UCAs drop right into place of your F150's stock upper control arms, making them a hassle-free upgrade to your F150's suspension.
Strong Tubular Steel Construction with Uprated Ball Joint and Rubber Bushings
The BDS UCAs manage to provide more strength and durability than the factory control arms, all while keeping your F150's ride clean and quiet, even in aggressive applications. The control arms are made out of 1.5" diameter mandrel-bent tubular steel with .120" wall thickness and a gloss black powder coat finish, which makes them much stronger than the factory stamped steel upper control arms. The control arms are built around an uprated MOOG ball joint in and indexed housing that allows for slightly more travel and articulation than stock while helping the UCAs avoid spring contact in leveled applications. The ball joint is replaceable, and uses an extremely common MOOG part number that's easy to find. The control arms use high-durometer rubber bushings for their body mounts which are quieter and more reliable than polyurethane bushings. Fitment:
2004-2018 F150 Will not fit 2010-2014 SVT Raptors or 2017-2018 Raptor models. Backspacing Requirements:
these upper control arms require a wheel with a maximum of a 5.50" of backspacing in order to clear a 12.50" wide tire. Wheels with larger amounts of backspacing will fit, but you will be required to use narrower tires.
Many of high-quality performance parts and accessories require freight shipping due to their size, bulk, or manufacturer's preferences. Freight shipping is only available to the Continental United States (AK, HI, Puerto Rico, etc. are not able to order items that ship via freight service). It takes roughly one to three days for Stage 3 to process a freight order and carefully prepare your order for transit. After our freight carrier picks up the product, a Stage 3 representative will email you tracking information for your order.
Once your shipment has arrived in your general area, the freight carrier will contact you to schedule the actual delivery. Most freight companies can only schedule for a particular day and not a specific time, because of their volume of deliveries.
After your order is delivered, it is extremely important to completely inspect your package and items for damage before signing the Bill of Lading while the delivery personnel are still there. You are solely responsible for thoroughly inspecting your items before signing any documentation. Carefully note any damage to your items or anything unusual on the Bill of Lading. Keep a copy of your papers and contact Stage 3 immediately if there is any damage or irregularities. Damage caused by transportation qualifies you for a refund and/or replacement only if any and all damage is properly documented on the Bill of Lading.
Please keep all of the item's original packaging for up to 30 days in case your product needs to be returned. All damage claims will need to be processed by our Returns Department and require clear photographs of the damage to your parts.
Some of our products are so large that they require the use of a lift gate or dock to effectively unload. Unfortunately, we can only offer free shipping to business addresses with those products. All orders that contain products that require a business address for free shipping will be checked, and if a residential address has been selected as the shipping address, that order will be held until we contact you to either change the address or elicit further payment for delivery to a residential address.
Contact Stage 3 Motorsports or check out our standard shipping policy if you have any additional questions or concerns.
