SPC Upper Control Arm Fits 2005-2015 Xterra # 25540

This SPC Upper Control Arm # 25540 is designed for use on the 2005-2015 Nissan Xterra Sport Utility Vehicles. This upper control arm helps correct camber and caster alignment issues after your Xterra has been modified with a suspension lift or leveling kit. Additionally, the SPC upper control arm provides more clearance between itself and the frame. If your factory arm is hitting the frame your suspension travel is being limited and this can result in unwanted noise or clunking. These SPC upper control arms feature heavy duty DOM tubing construction and use patented adjustable ball joints. And the new SpecRide(tm) bushings provide long life and quiet trouble-free operation.

If you own a 2005 or newer Xterra and have installed a lift or leveling kit you may be experiencing Upper Control Arm to frame contact. SPC designed their upper control arm to provide more clearance between the arm and the frame which helps prevent clunking and clanking. This # 25540 Upper Arm will fit 2005+ Frontier and Xterra models and 2005-2012 Pathfinder SUV's. This product will NOT fit the 2013 or newer Pathfinder!

NEW SpecRide Bushings
Free Moving Pivot Sleeve which eliminates failures caused by high travel suspensions
Noise and vibration control
Ozone, oil and alkaline resistant material
Front Adjustment range: Camber +/-2.00 degrees, Caster -1.0 degree to +3.00 degrees
Installation time: Approximately 1 hour per side

The SPC Adjustable UCA (Upper Control Arm) design and materials allow for an increase in suspension droop or rebound travel and a much wider range of alignment options. These Upper Control Arms have approximately 20* more articulation capability than factory OEM arms. 85* degrees for SPC Upper Arm vs. 65* degrees for the stock ball joint. If your stock factory Nissan control arms had sufficient travel in the ball joint these SPC arms will not be the limiting factor to suspension travel! SPC Upper Control Arms are designed to clear the coil bucket on most Nissan vehicles. Minor grinding on the frame may be necessary on certain vehicles that have a very large flange / lip on the strut mounting pocket. The material necessary for removal is minor and the flange is not structural.

Installation Tech Tip:
The SPC Upper Control Arm is best used to make coarse adjustments to the Camber and Caster. In order to make fine tuning your alignment a much easier process we highly recommend the purchase and installation of the SPC Alignment Cam & Bolt Kit # 87520 (purchased separately). The SPC Alignment Cam & Bolt Kit allows you to much more easily fine tune the camber and caster on your vehicle without having to adjust the Upper Control Arm. Most Nissan trucks and SUV's sold as 2005 or 2006 model years come factory equipped with an adjustable cam and bolt system. The 2007 and newer vehicles do NOT have an adjustable system installed from the factory. By installing the aftermarket SPC Alignment Cam & Bolt Kit you also make future alignments much easier as the upper control arm should not need to be adjusted. The $49.00 price includes a set of 4 SPC Alignment Cams, Bolts and hardware. These are installed in the lower control arm.
