I had a problem getting the bolts off, but after a while i got them off. To me when before i got my UPR and LCA it was like running on the grass with tennis shoes. After the control arms it was like running on the grass with cleats.

I am running UPR pro adjustable solid lowers on mine and I love them. whatever you do don't buy granatelli. I had those before the upr's and they were CRAP!!!!!!!! you have to keep in mind that with the UPR pro adj. ones that I have do not have a mount for the rear sway bar so you will have to lose that like I did (dunno if thats an option for you or not)

This may be a dumb question.... I know what the UCA and LCA look like. However, there is a third arm on the back side of the axle that also connects to the frame. What is that arm called? Would that be a trailing arm?

sounds like the po installed a panhard bar. that upper control arm setup above actually looks pretty cool and would work well.

HPM made them for ford racing. My package said ford racing on it but the actual LCAs say HPM

That upper kit looks like it has the same idea as the baseline kit that Ox is running.
