    C3940106 upper control arm recall kits

    I have 7 sets of NOS C3940106 upper control arm recall kits for $25 each plus shipping. These were orignally used on 1976 to early 1978 Aspen and Volare to strengthen attaching point of upper control arms because the frames were cracking in this area. They will fit any F, M, or J body to add rigidity to the suspension. Contact moparbenw@gmail.com in Elizabethton, TN.Click image for larger version.

    Your photo is too big. Resize it to 840 X 630 and try again.

    They were to help strengthen the upper control arm mounting support. The supports were cracking and the recall added those support brackets. No bolts came with them.

    Hard to see in this pic but they will be the strap like pieces under the control arm mounting nuts and go down to the top bolts on the control arm mounting bracket (red arrow).

    I believe they were for '76 and '77(?). My '79 didn't need them but they came with the upper arms and mounting brackets I got from Arizona so figured may as well put them in.

    The grey or silver straps under the nuts holding the long pivot pin? I think I have those, but I'll have to check to be sure.

    Thanks.
