You will have to change both upper control arms then. The lower one is the large one that has the camber adjustment where it attaches to the bracket on the far side from the wheel.

The forward upper control arm is where the toe adjustment is. If you only lengthen the rearward upper control arm, you won't be able to get the toe out far enough, I would think.
