Hey guys,
I haven't seen too many reviews concerning the zone off road upper control arms. So I took a gamble and ordered them, since I already have their 3.5in combo lift installed. The install was very easy. And a massive improvement over stock, no more clunking while going over bumps. My truck has 100k on it with bad cv boots and bad upper control arm joints, so I figured it was a good time to upgrade.
Only issue I ran into is with my stock winter wheels with 285s at full steering lock the tire does hit the new control arm, even with the supplied steering stops installed.

Yep. I will be putting my 18s with more bs on shortly, so I'm not too worried about it.

I wonder if me being 2.5 versus your 3.5 matters?

I would assume you would have the same result unless you have wheels with more back spacing. They recommend 4.5in backspacing with 265s

With the 2.5level I'm sure your ballpoints are at their limits. It's a worthy investment. And these are the cheapest ones that I was able to find.

EBay has some cheaper. But idk quality wise
I have the ebay ones. I bought them off a guy locally dirt cheap. I wouldn't trust the ball joints, I replaced them with moog before I installed them. those zone arms look beefy, id buy them depending on what ball joints come in them. id say go with the rc ucas since they have moog bjs already.

I would replace the bj s if I were to go the eBay route
