Please help... I’m putting my suspension back together and I don’t remember which upper control arm is the driver or passenger side? I ordered a set of umi uppers and they have a curve to them. I think the longer end goes to the front? Thanks! The picture is the driver side.

Well, the end link brackets to attach the sway bar would be the front side of the A Arm on each side.

For the upper control arm?

OOps! I can't make out the orientation in your photo, but the longer side of the A-arm would be toward the rear and the shorter side toward the front. In other words, the ball joint would appear more toward the front instead of rearward. Maybe someone can explain it better.

Ok so I was thinking it was the other way around. Thanks for your help, if anyone else can confirm that would be great.

Yes, what I'm saying is that's backward. The ball joint should be toward the front. It's certainly easy to get confused.
