Thats what i need to order. I get some control arm hitting tower.Who makes them? Also does that give me clearance to go lower?

^^ I have the Ingalls Upper Camber Control arm. It does hit if you go too low because the ingalls arm is actually angled steeper then the OEM control arm. They won't hit if you have camber, but as soon as you get an alignment, then the control arm will hit the shock tower. Happens to me only on hard bumps though. But if you have soft supensions then its gonna be an issue as Toronto roads are not the best, in fact its one of the worst =(

ingalls makes uca replacements with adjustable camber ball joints in them. but they dont offer any additional clearance. theres really nothing we can do short of getting completely new knuckles with a shorter arm that extends up to the uca....which isnt made. even if it was, there might be clearance issues with the uca and tires/wheels possibly.

YAh, I don't think theres a knuckle out there that will make it lower. Any lower then the ball joint gets really close to the tire.

yea. like, theres some room to play with, to make the uca lower if it was possible to get a knuckle with a shorter arm, but its not much room, haha, like inches.

You can always cut a piece out of the knuckle that connects to the ball joint and weld it back on.......but i dont recommend that for obvious reasons. hahaa

YAh. That just kinda came to mind. hahaa. Well to stop the control arm hitting the shock tower, i guess you can always hammer out the shock tower from inside where the control arm is. Gonna take a pretty freaking big hammer for that though, hahaaa.
