Does anyone know of a company that makes a upper control arm for 99 up 1500 4wd's that will gain me an inch or so of lift? I've got a 6" Rough Country with keys and rear add-a leaf. I'd love to get another inch out of the front with out cranking. TIA.

Just replacing your UCA won't give you any lift. The Cognito uca kit might work though, it puts the balljoints at a different angle allowing you to align it when cranked up, plus easing the stress on them. I always thought the lift ucas for 2wds always included longer coils? Hmmm....

On Some Trucks You Can Gain Lift With Ball Jpoint Spacers, But Thats On Toyotas Or Other Vehicles With Torsion Bars On The Upper Comtrol Arms.

^What they said. You can't gain any suspension height simply by replacing the upper a-arm.

Well, you can, just not on chevys. the older 2wd 89-95 trucks use the fabtech 3'' lift upper arm.

sorry for this useless info.
