Tough Dog has released its new Upper Control Arms to suit a range of vehicles makes for those lifting their IFS 4X4s and wanting to eliminate things like caster and camber distortion.
When it comes to lifting an IFS 4X4 you can run into issues around caster and camber distortion which can leave your 4X4 with vague steering and tyre wear. There are some workarounds but you’ll always have issues with the upper control arms fouling on down travel. To that end, Tough Dog has announced its range of upper control arms that’ll work with a range of different vehicle makes, including Ford Ranger/Everest, Mazda BT-50, Toyota LandCruiser, HiLux, FJ Cruiser, and Fortuner.
In a statement, Tough Dog said its upper control arms are built tough, with the end housing forged from 1020-grade steel and they’re both fixed-length-and-position arms to keep them from moving out of alignment when driving off-road. The upper control arms from Tough Dog come with heavy-duty bushings that are high flex style design that require no lubrication. The Tough Dog upper control arm’s ball joint is made of Chromoly steel; all bushings and ball joints are OEM parts to make things a little easier. Ford Ranger/Everest, Mazda BT-50, Toyota LandCruiser, HiLux, FJ Cruiser, and Fortuner.
