The JeePerf On-The-Vehicle (OTV) ADJUSTABLE Rear Upper Control Arm for Jeep Grand Cherokees (WK) and Commanders (XK)Improve your vehicles on and off road handling, traction, droop travel and Pinion angle with JeePerf’s adjustable Rear upper control arms.Featuring your choice of a heavy duty Spherical Bearing imbedded in Polyurethane, Polyhead or Heim joints, this arm is designed for comfort, full articulation, gas tank's skid plate clearance and long service life. Riding on these UCA enhances traction, ride quality and safety.When you flex your rear suspension over 2”, your rear axle must move forward and a little bit to the side to accommodate this motion, then get back to its normal position when the vehicle is at normal height. When you lift your Jeep 2" or more, the rear axle permanently moves forward and to the side at the new vehicle height. When you flex your suspension further, it moves forward and to the side even more, possibly rubbing the tire on the rear fender and causing accelerated tire wear due to it being skewed to one side. The vehicle's thrust angle will not be correct and bad handling, side to side bouncing and accelerated tire wear will result. The added height has another effect on the pinion angle of the drive shaft. It must operate at steeper angle which will introduce added vibration to the cabin as well as accelerated wear of the U-Joints. To lift the rear end of your Jeep properly, your rear suspension needs new geometry to accommodate the lift. This can be achieved by using adjustable control arms, adjustable track bar and adjustable swaybar links if using the vehicle with a rear swaybar. The adjustable control arms can be adjusted to move the rear axle back to the center of the wheel well. The UCA can also be adjusted to rotate the rear axle to achieve that normal pinion operating angle of the driveshaft again, thus enhancing ride quality and restoring normal service life to the rear drive shaft U-joints.JeePerf's SuperFlex UCA are solidly built using the very best materials and most innovative design techniques.
