I'd compare buying home built UCA/LCA's with an unknown background for $500 to sticking your dick in a random hole in a fence.

There's just no way of knowing what is waiting for you on the other side and by the time you figure it out it was a bad choice, you're stuck with it.

Geometry could be messed up and you won't know until you spend a day bolting it on and you become the next guy trying to sell that kit.

Could have design flaws not visible to the naked eye that you won't know about until something breaks.

Or it could be good work and a great deal. No way of knowing without bolting it up to the truck first.

save your money and buy a kit that you know you will not have problems with in the future.

It's sketchy buying homemade upper and lower arms. They could work great but it's not worth the risk
