Re: xf front upper control arms

XF upper arms will fit but you may have to cut off the threads that stick out of the nuts on the cross shaft to give clearance in the spring/shock tower. Also the arm is slightly longer which will reduce the amount of negative camber available to you. Hope this helps.

ps done this conversion a number of times

xw arms are better. Less slop in the bearings compared to the rubber bushes.
