Default Upgraded control arms?

Does anyone have any idea of the best upgraded upper control arms. Plan on lifting my truck only about 4-5 inches with probably 14 wide wheels and no lift kit offers upgrades control arms. Any suggestions will help.

Moog problem solver upper and lower control arms are the best you can get. Slightly more beefy than stock.

I'll second that. I installed a set of Moog PS uppers a few weeks ago, but kept my stock lowers, just changed the ball joints.

Amazon had the best price on the uppers, and I believe Rock Auto won on the lowers.

I'm not sure anyone makes a true aftermarket UCA for the 4wd. It's a long overlooked & now forgotten platform. :/

Total Chaos Fab made a good tubular unibal set and they were still doing them custom not very long ago. Even after they weren't listed on their site.
