When you lift a truck, you are changing the geometry of many front-end components. There’s a lot of factors to consider when doing this, as not only can it affect your ride quality if not done properly, but it can be a detrimental to your safety. Let’s face it, every time you get behind the wheel you could potentially be putting yourself and everyone else around you at risk. That’s why it’s important to not skip out on the proper upgrades. One of the most recommended upgrades when lifting a vehicle is the Upper Control Arms. Dirt King Fabrication has designed their Heim Upper Control Arms with increased castor and repositioned pivot angles. The increased castor allows for proper alignment and improved handling, while the pivot angles reduce stress on the joints and increases your safety. To further this product with maximum strength and increased articulation, Dirt King has replaced the weak factory ball joints with 1” stainless steel uniballs. For the inner pivots, Dirt King uses heavy-duty ¾” FK heims which allow for additional camber and caster adjustment. To mount the arms to the spindle, Dirt King includes high-grade 17-4 stainless steel misalignment spacers and military grade F911 hardware. To provide consumers with a product that can last a lifetime, Dirt King designed all components on the Upper Control Arms to be rebuildable if needed. Your Heim Upper Control Arms come preassembled and include detailed instructions to ensure a hassle-free installation.

*Not compatible with 5 lug Tacoma’s
*Wheel Travel / Lift*
The upper control arms must be paired with OEM replacement coil overs to lift the vehicle. They offer an additional 1” of down travel compared to the stock upper control arms. These arms are compatible with King, Fox, Bilstein, ADS and Icon coil overs. Do not install these upper control arms with coil spacers that over articulate the suspension.
*Some King OEM replacement coil overs have short reservoir hoses that come in contact with aftermarket upper control arms. This can be solved by installing longer reservoir hoses or adjusting the reservoir to allow for more slack in the hose.
The upper control arms will allow for 33” tires but the front section of the cab mount may need to be cut to avoid tire rubbing while turning. In addition, the front bumper may require trimming for proper tire clearance.
