I asked this on another forum with no response. Hopefully someone here has a legit answer. Has anyone installed 15-20 Upper control arms yet on a 2021. I am waiting for my Bilstein 6112 / 5160 and a set of BDS UCA's to come in. Are a set of BDS UCA going to beneficial? I have a 2021 STX with a crew max short bed 4x4. Has anyone even installed aftermarket UCA's yet or am I going to be the Guinea pig?

If you're going to be running the 6112's you don't need to replace the UCA's. That setup uses a very small portion for actual lift and the rest is preload to help increase clearance for larger tires. I have that on my truck now.

Hello!

Do we know if prior year uca will fit? Regardless if he needs them or not.

Falcon front and rear shocks are on the way and I would like to find a set that fits, thanks!!!

I’m wondering the same thing... I’d like to order 2020 UCAs for 2021 lift, but I’m not sure... Has anyone done this yet?

Rough Country UCAs fit, but there is no provision for the headlight adjustment sensor found on higher trim levels and a custom bracket must be fabricated to retain its functionality.

Thanks! Unfortunately RCs UCAs aren’t available until at least Mid May... They told me 4/15 when I ordered the lift, then sent me an email saying Mid May. Supposedly the UCAs are the hold up. So, I’ve ordered everything separately and am now needing UCAs.

It like “Iifts for less” has the BDS UCAs in stock... I’m not ordering until I know for sure though... These websites are very misleading saying they’ll ship within several days. Then they send an email after you order saying they’ll take longer...

I see fab tech has a 2021 uca that has a different part number than the previous generation uca. I wonder if anything if different? As soon as one of ya installs a set of any brand please let me know of everything works out :)

I have the BDS UCAs but I have yet to install them as I am still waiting on stage3 motorsports to send out my rims and tires and the Bilstien 6112s I orders back in early March.

Hi Jay.
Just wondering if the Pre-21 UCAs from BDS worked for you? I am wondering if I can use mine I had on my 2019. Thank you
