New Built Right UCA's

Here's the story. I needed some UCA's but I couldn't personally justify coughing up the better part of $700 for uniballs such as Total Chaos, AllPro, or Camburg. I had settled on getting the less expensive Light Racing when it came time to order. Then one day I'm fartin' around on TW and see that TRICOMA has $469 uniball UCA's listed in his signature. They were new Built Rights (which I've never heard of). So I pm Tri and everything sounded legit. Hesitantly, I called James at the Truck Shop and after a discussion with him I decided to take a chance and pulled the trigger. The Truck Shop shipped them fast, I installed them myself in a couple of hours, and the alignment tech loved them. He said they gave him all the wiggle room he needed to get the desired specs. With my stock upper control arms he had to sacrifice caster to get the desired camber.

I can't give a long term report yet but so far I'm stoked with these. They give more space for tires and they don't touch the coils at full sag. They're beefy as hell and the tolerances they were manufactured to are tighter than a virgin. There is no "play" in these. In fact, I needed assembly lube just to get the pieces together. Very well manufactured.

As it sits pics:

Glad someone chimed in with a review. I am probably going to go with these instead of TC when I do my lift...I see no reason why the TC are worth the extra money...these even seem (from my gawking at photos of both) to have more clearance for the coilover...

At full sag, my stock arms hit my coils. I can happily say these aren't even close to the coils at full sag. A good inch and a half or so away from my 285's too.

I am planning to go with Icon ext travel COs and that was a big concern for me, as it is confirmed TC UCAs impact the coil at full droop.

These may as well...I'm not sure...but regardless they're still $200 cheaper.

Jandrews, if you give me 'til tomorrow, I'll take a pic looking down from inside the wheel well at full droop so you can see the clearance. I'm guessing it will clear pretty well because the uniball's travel isn't in line with the coil body

Greg nice review. I have had not time to get a review done but here are some pictures from my install. I love the UCA but I have only stock to compare them with but they are great. They feel so much better on an off the road. I have about 2.25 lifted with my Kings not cranked up at all. I had no problems with alignment as well. My kings are extend as well. Here are some pictures of my install.

Do they rub with 33" tires?

I want to be able to install some 33" tires, from what I have read, 33" tires may rub the stock UCA.

33" tires try real hard to rub everything. I have 33's and it takes a combination of wheel backspacing (or spacers), fender trimming, and suspension lift to run them without rubbing the UCA's, the plastic fenders, and/or the body mounts.

These retail for $599, but I told james that anyone that comes from TW and tells him you heard it from Me that he would give you the special price.

I will be at corral canyon tomorrow with them.

So, I just got back from another alignment and still not close on getting a caster angle into spec! - I have All Pro UCAs and I'm thinking about jumping ship! Does anyone have an actual print out off from their alignment?

Every single shop I have taken it to - 5 so far can't get any closer than between 4.7 and 5.1 for the Caster angle.

Has anyone had the same problem with All Pro UCAs?

Do these cure this problem?

Thanks

The LR UCAs set on 0 add 2 degrees to stock caster setting. I had 1.2 before and 3.3 after. Oh...5100s set at 2.5 with 1.5 AAL out back. That's what is cool about the LRs, there are 5 settings to deal with caster adjustment and they have the extra camber adjustment on them too...that and the pricing. Just doesn't have the uniball.
