For Sale Upper control arms... Extended WITH UNIBALL

Okay, I have an 02' Explorer Sport XLS. My truck does not have an upper arm in front. Front strut connects to the spindle. There is no spring, it's a torsion bar. The other thing is my rear end is a solid axle on Leaf springs. Mine was made in Oct. 2001, and def. Is labeled as a 02'. Is mine maybe a leftover parts before change? Mine also has a posi 4.10 rearend. IFS front end though.

Do you have the "sport" 2-door edition? If so, that would make sense, but if you have the 4 door with that setup that's a first to me

Yeah it's the 2 dr Sport. Been a pain finding all the right stuff to get my lift components together. Rear was easy, add a leaf and shackles, but front I ordered keys for a Ranger/Sport trac. Here's hoping...

Unless you've done custom front suspension work, you DO have upper control arms. 2001-03 TWO DOOR Sports, 2001-05 Sport Tracs, and 1995-01 (Gen 2) four door Explorers share the same IFS with torsion bars. 2002-05 (Gen 3) four doors uses coil springs, not torsion bars. If you don't have UCA's, some pics would be interesting to see.

I will snap some when I get home. No lie, no upper arm, no coil spring, just a strut bolted to the spindle at top, and a torsion bar running through the lower arm. It has messed me up also.
 






^ Thanks. Anxious to see your "FrankenSport" front suspension pics. ;)

It almost looks like an Escape setup only bigger! I have been trying to find someone else that has the same suspension but yet to find one.
