Has anyone had the same problem with All Pro UCAs?

Do these cure this problem?

Thanks

I think Greg might have it. I have had no problems with it and according to Greg his alignment guy said it gave him plenty of room to adjust. Contact James if you have anymore questions. I love my UCAs.

Good Luck

How do these compare to the LR UCA? I think I have heard that the LR are maintenance free since no uni ball.

What allows these to be more easily adjusted for alignment issues that other sets of UCAs?

I have not had the others so I have nothing to compare too. I know I am a few others I know did not have problems with alignment. Also because the uniball I get more articulation. I would not buy LR because it is similar to my stock...which worked for me because I was not lifted too might about 2.25". I lift for performance not looks.

Built Right makes them for 4Runner, Tundras, FJs and other Toyotas. So these will not fit but they make some that do.

You sure? I thought Front end suspension components are 100% swappable between the tacoma and FJ. You might wanna give James a call and maybe you can promote on the FJ cruiser forums as well.

Thats weird, all the aftermarket UCA's seem to go off the same concept, 1" uniballs. Maybe another underlying issue? Maybe your missing parts?....like longer Lower arms and upper arms....and some 12" travel coilovers....and a full cage....

You know I do know Built Right makes them for almost all Toyotas and even the 5 Lug.

I thought they were the same for the FJ but I was not sure and to be safe. Either way...if you have an FJ, Built Right has them. I will see him today so I will ask if they are the same or not.
