BDS New Product Announcement #292: BDS Upper Control Arms for Tundra


Coldwater, MI: Nothing compliments a set of FOX coilovers like a quality suspension to maximize travel. BDS Suspension is excited to announce new heavy duty upper control arms (UCA) now available for the 2007-2017 Toyota Tundra trucks. These new UCAs are designed for improved strength, great looks, and more wheel travel on leveled and lifted for the Tundra.

The new performance control arms are built from high strength 1.5" OD x .120-wall tubing, gusseted for strength and durability. They use an indexed ball joint cup to correct the ball joint positioning for use with 2-3" leveling kits and most full IFS lift kits on the market. The frame mounting ends feature durometer-specific rubber bushings. At the other end they use an indexed ball joint cup with and premium Moog-brand ball joints for smooth, quiet operation and superior durability to arms that feature uniballs, poly bushings or heims. These control arms come finished in a durable semi-gloss black powder coat and include a billet aluminum machined BDS ball joint dust cap as well as proper brake line attachment points to ensure a factory-like fit. The arms integrate a mounting tab for the factory brake lines so there's no need to zip tie the lines like with other kits. The control arms come fully assembled for easy install right out of the box.

Take your Tundra to the next level of ride quality and performance with suspension upgrades from BDS.

    I just installed a set of bds 4.5” lift kit with Fox coilovers on my 2015 Toyota Tundra 4×4, and right now I wanna upgrade the ucas for my tundra, but I just see here this set uca not recommended with the 4.5” lift kit, so what kind uca will recommend with 4.5” lift kit? Uniball style uca or balljoint style uca? Or do you have any other plan to upgrade a set of heavy duty ucas for my tundra?
    Thank you very much

    Hey everyone.. I have 2017 Tundra with the 7 inch BDS Lift kit. I’m looking to buy the new BDS UCA’s but I’ve been hearing that aftermarket UCA’s don’t align well with the BDS Lift kits.. I’ve heard I need a Heim Joint UCA … have you heard this as well?? And if so, will this new BDS UCA work fine for alignment with my lift??

    I’m having a lot of outside wear on the tires on my 2017 tundra. Currently running 7 inch bds lift kit and apparently a lot of tundra owners with the lift is having issues. I have done some extensive research that spindle design has flaws. what does this uca kit do? I see that people are talking about get adjustable ones but looks like your product isn’t adjustable. I need this corrected asap as my tires that only has 7k miles is wearing out quick on the outside edge. Please contact me immediately

    Also – I’ve contacted the distributor and they are not willing to resolve the issue. This is causing a lot of headaches and very stressful with the outside wear on the tires as they aren’t cheap.

    Recently added the BDS UCAs to my Tundra TRD 4X4 CM with a BDS 7″ Fox coilovers and shocks. I am having to get a body mount chop due to caster being different and still experiencing some outer tire wear but drives better than it ever has. Ted in tech support helped tremendously

    Hi I have a 2013 tundra on a bds 7″ lift was looking to get a little more out of it. Soni wanted to throw a bds 2 inch spacer on top of the fox 2.5 coil and add these upper arms . Do you think I’ll have issues with angles or any issues at all ?

    Hello, I plan on doing the BDS/Fox 3” coilover system as I don’t care for the 7” sky high lifts and all the problems that come with lifting a vehicle that high. How close to stock will the bds UCA get? Do you have the +/- caster specs? I think stock is around 2*-2.5* am I correct? Trying to learn more about UCA’s in general. I’ve heard stock arms are fine with 3” of lift, but I’d like to go aftermarket just for more wheel travel and tire clearance. I’m currently on the fence about your BDS UCA and the MCM Fab UCA. Any insight would be great.

    Is it true tha BDS is certified by Toyota to not void the warranty on a Toyota vehicle? I want to level my 2018 trd 4×4 SR5 but don’t want to void the platinum warranty I have.

    I’m looking into a Rancho Quicklift strut assemblies (2.25 inches of lift built into the strut, so no spacer on top). Would these be compatible?
