    Comments about Driveworks Front Right Upper Control Arm:

    Pretty easy to install, just have a good breaker bar when removing he old one. Make sure you get a suspension alignment shortly after completion or you may wear your tires out quickly.

    Comments about Driveworks Front Right Upper Control Arm:

    I did the replacement in my driveway. Perfect fit on my 2000 Explorer. Make sure before you leave the store that ALL parts are in the box(Mine was missing the grease zerk). Store personel got one for me before I left the store.

    Comments about Driveworks Front Right Upper Control Arm:

    It fit but that's where the positive ends. I installed this 2 months ago and heard a fresh noise a couple of weeks ago. Upon inspection I found 3/4" play in the ball joint. Don't waste your time or money on this part, pony up the cash and buy Moog. Now I get to find how good the 1 year warranty is and if Advance customer service will let me apply the purchase price to the Moog part!

      Comments about Driveworks Front Right Upper Control Arm:

      This was my firs time around doing any repairs on my Explorer other then oil changes and the basics. I ordered this part online and picked up instore because of the great promo codes they offer!

      I really had no idea what i was doing going into this at all lol But this control arm with upper ball joint on the passenger side was pretty easy actually. Watched a few how to Videos and took me a few hours because like i said first time doing any semi serious repairs on our Explorer. I changed out both control arms/upper ball joints and then went on to the lower ones too. I needed all of this to get a alignment done. Over all good buy put about 200 miles on it so far and no problems.
