the uniballs are stronger, but a couple of things are assumed from the OP. he's going with the toytec ultimate lift kit, so we know he's not racing, and more than likely not wheeling every single weekend. the LR balljoint is massive. he will not break it. so in his case, the uniball would be partially for looks. the uniballs also take a little maintenance, and most daily drivers may not want to have to worry about relubing a unibal every so often. so that's why i'd recomend the op get the LR.
my trucks been on 3 wheels, 2 wheels, and even no wheels, and the LR arms have been great. some day i'll upgreade to a unibal, but i have more important priorities on truck list lol.
however, if you have the extra $200, don't mind the little bit of maintenance, and actually need the strength, then i'd recomend the TC
