    Comments about Driveworks Control Arm Front Upper Left:

    Installed easily. Took truck to have it aligned after installation, the next day the control arm popped out of the knuckle while my son was driving the truck. So being down a vehicle that I was depending on, a tow bill, and the cost of a new control arm plus labor cost to have it installed, this part cost me around $400.

          After noticing my front tires were wearing out on the inside treads, I decided to replace them both. The new control arms L+R have been installed for about a month now and they're great.
          They straightened up my front wheels, my steering has improved , They're a incredible value.

          Comments about Driveworks Control Arm Front Upper Left:

          This was just what my truck needed. This part was perfect right out of the box. Solid and heavy gauge material. Perfect fit. A tip I found was to take a hack saw blade and scribe scratch marks in the cam-alignment tabs before removal so when you get the arm installed you have a reference point for assembly. You still need to have the front end aligned afterwards. Rides more smooth and steering control is much better. Glad I did the repair. Very easy install for a basic shade-tree knucklehead like me. Great videos on u-tube. Best of luck.

            • Q:

              How can I get a grease fitting for this part? Are they universal in size? There is a hole for the fitting and the right control arm came with one.

              • A:

                the ball joint is replaceable, however, most of the time its easier to just replace the whole control arm. On many Ford vehicles you can buy the ball joint separate, but for a few dollars more and unless you have a ball joint press kit and know how to use it, its just easier to replace the whole control arm
