upper control bracket failure

July 17, 2013
The Upper control arm bracket broke above the weld which means the material isn't thick enough to handle the load my oval dirt track car could give it. They need to use a thicker material for this part for this reason. It says that this kit is IMCA Approved but I was told differently by the director and that he would contact the producer of this product and let them know what happened. I would use something other than this thin rectangular piece for the upper mounts.
Cons:
  • material for upper control arm too thin. broke.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Yes you should be able to use this on an 8.8 rear end also. The only issue you will run into is the 8.8 has a smaller axle tube diameter and these brackets have a radius cut for a 3" OD axle tube. If you do a little fitting of the brackets they should work fine for you.
