Light racing ball joint

Hi everyone

Just want to have your opinions. I put LR UCA on my tacoma with a OME setup with 885. I drove it for about 30 000km. Last week i have to change the wheel bearing on the front right wheel and i notice that the ball joint is loose. I don't know how to say that, i'm a french speeking guy so...But the ball joint have a big play from up to down like almost 1/4 of a inch. I'm the only one to see this? I don't really off-road, i just installed them to correct my alignment. I think this UCA is supposed to be tougher than the stock?

Excuse my english

Mine have over 20,000 miles on them and are tighter than a drum. I wheel them pretty hard, too. Odd.

Why? Even with bad bushings they're worth selling.

No, there have been a few cases of parts not performing like they should but SPC has generally taken care of it (Specialty Parts Company is the parent to Light Racing). I wouldn't hesitate to throw a set on my truck.
