    Upper control arms


    When an Independent Front Suspension (IFS) vehicle is fitted with a suspension lift, the caster and camber can be pushed outside the factory specifications. IFS vehicles generally have a few degrees of adjustment in their camber and caster from the factory. Adding Old Man Emu upper control arms brings the alignment cams back into an acceptable range for both caster and camber.

    The Upper Control Arm will provide an increase between +2.5 and +3.5 degrees of caster and up to 1.5 degrees of negative camber increase (figures based on an approximate 50mm or 2in lift).

    Diff Drop Kit


    The differential drop kit will lower the differential for improved CV joint angles on vehicles lifted between 3 inches to 6 inches. Includes 2 new longer differential bolts, 2 one-inch differential spacers, 1/2 inch skid plate spacers, and longer skid plate bolts.

    Extended Brake Lines


    Upgrade your lifted vehicle's safety and performance with Mudify Brake Lines. When your vehicle is lifted, the increased distance between the brake calipers and mounting points can cause insufficient brake line length, potentially damaging the lines. Our durable and reliable brake line extensions accommodate this increased distance, ensuring proper tension, preventing strain or stretching, and maintaining optimal brake performance. Mudify Brake Lines are DOT approved, compatible with all brake fluids, and proudly made in the USA. With a 3-year or 37,000-mile warranty, you can trust Mudify for peace of mind.
