SPC upper control arms. They have different sizes and ball joint angles.

Are they LUV specific or generic? The LUV bolt spacing for the mounting is an odd size. (You can always weld a new attachment point).

Pretty sure they won't... On mine, I bought a set of the generic adjustables and sectioned the cross shaft to fit though...

Took this much out between the bolt holes...
