Default Adjustable Upper Control Arms

2001 Toyota 4Runner with stock rear axle, 3" OME lift.

I need to rotate the pinion up and want to do it by replacing the upper arms with adjustable. I can build them, but do not know the proper terminology of what everything is called to buy the right parts. I do not need anything heavy, just something adjustable. Would prefer to stay away from the expensive heims... Again, I just need adjustability in something as strong as stock. This is not a dedicated wheeler.

Any help along with website links would be appreciated.

In regards to heims... Looks like the prices I saw were for larger than I need. In reality, the price is not out of line.

I'd look at ruff stuff specialties. Do you know if you want both sides adjustable or a bushing at one end and a heim at the other?

Bushing on one end. No need for major adjustability. I just need to turn the pinion up about 5 degrees.

I think that in my searching I've answered most of my questions. Just need to get some measurements so I know what to order.
