I have the same issue. Anyone know of a skid for the rear bracket of the front lower control arm. Mine are also getting beat up pretty bad.

So on the axel mount LCA skids from RR I can wiggle the skid up and down. Doesn't seem to be loosening the bolt but not sure if I should be concerned.

Sueby You mean a skid for the back bracket for the front lower control arm? I have seen them on this forum I think, but I do think it was something someone made themselves. I had a friend mention this to me the other day too, I think he said he had seen them.

SilverSport I went to the RR website and found no mention of upper control arm skids.

Considering the tie rod, drag link, etc. are lower than the upper control arms, if you need skids for the uppers, you are in some deep shit.

ljrubitm Are you sure you're not talking about the rear lower control arm? I've never heard of upper control arm skids.

Zed What do you think ?
When I grab and pull down I can see the skid move under the bolt.

RR Control arm skid question

I've already installed Rugged Rige lower control arm skids and love them. BUT today I installed the upper control arm skid front passenger side. Used both RR spacers and washers but I can still wiggle the skid up and down. Does that sound normal to you all? I thought it should be tight.
