    Hello TacomaWorld!

    After months of development, we have several sets of our "boxed" UCAs on test vehicles. The feedback has been all positive! These UCAs are a great addition to your coil-over setup. They allow for better alignment (more caster built into them), better articulation and they eliminate the upper ball joints, converting them to 1" uniballs. These arms are manufactured using the best materials available. The arms are laser cut from 1/8″ 4130 plate and CNC press broke. Everything on the arm, down to the uniball cups are 4130 cromoly. Our misalignment spacers are machined from 17-4 stainless steel, and hold tolerances of .001 to ensure a perfect fit every time. Our tapered spindle adapter is also manufactured from 17-4 stainless, and we run all grade 8 hardware and top lock nuts. We are also the only manufacturer that produces a TIG welded, plate upper arm for Tacomas. This kit comes complete with bushings, hardware and instructions. Photo shows arms in raw metal, but all arms will be powder coated BLACK.

    These upper control arms fit the following vehicles
    05+ Toyota Tacoma, 03+ 4 Runner & 07+ FJ Cruiser
    MSRP $649
    Retail $599
    TW $569

    As a special introductory promotion, we will be giving away '2' sets of these bad boys! The give away is open to ANYONE who would like to enter, no purchase necessary. To be entered into the drawing, all you need to do is visit our Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/downsouthmotorsports, click "Like", and post something about your truck, and why you want these UCAs, on our wall. We will pick 2 winners randomly, on October 31st. Winners will be posted on Facebook and Tacoma World. As an added bonus, along with your new UCAs, you will receive a "Swag-bag" with a DSM T-shirt & decals!:cool:

    As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions...

    Thank You!
