Default Upper Control Arm great find.

So my car needs new upper control arms and I didnt feel like spending a ton on the OEM ones, I went on rock auto and was set on getting the Raybestos arm but then I spotted the Mevotech Supreme series. They have a lifetime warranty and I got them today, I must say I am impressed. The arms themselves are beefier than stock even around the bushing area. And this is the only arm I found with a greasable ball joint. I can post pictures if people want. link here also has pictures.

Hey man, thank you so much for posting this- EXACTLY want I needed to hear - I was just about to buy from RockAuto anyway, but it's nice to hear the great review from you.

RockAuto seriously is the Best- $205 for BOTH RH and LH Upper Control Arms SHIPPPED.... The MevoTech SUPREME's are also on Ebay for my application also and are $156 EACH. (shipped) Nice deal...

Limited Lifetime Warranty, too...that's amazing- so that would INCLUDE the bushings ever failing then, right?



Also- what's up with these OTHER brands of Upper Controls Arms for our cars- do you think they're OKAY, like AT ALL? lol (I found a set for $107 SHIPPED- that's for the PAIR on Ebay! ha)

No problem! I think most of them are garbage, the only ones id trust are these and the raybestos but those only have a 2 year. I paid a little more with rockauto because if there are any issues with them they will help with the warranty. And yes they cover bushings and all. I already have them installed I have nothing to complain about, they seem like they are made real well!
