    Has anyone tried All-Pro 4130 Chromoly Upper A-Arms? They look similar to TC's UCA. I just want to know good/bad/similar.

    Here's the website:

    Looks like the same with different color and without the greaseable bushings. Or am I just wrong? The price is very nice too compare to TC.

    Meh...that was traced back to a bad batch in the production run. They worked well for me while I had 'em.

    Figure I would have pushed the truck until something broke that day. Just glad it was something easy to replace. ;)

    AllPro stands behind their product, which is a huge reason why I have nothing bad to say about 'em. Yeah I broke their gear, but I break a lot of stuff. They offered to replace for free, but I'd already replaced them myself so they offered a full refund. In the end Jon and I worked out a deal because I wanted their upgraded steering kit.

    They took mine back for R&D purposes to make improvements for the future.

    Through it all, I still recommend them. Great bang for the buck, they fix alignment issues, never squeaked on me, and the company stands behind their stuff.

    I have heard way more bad than good on the All Pros. One guy on TTORA bought my STOCK UCA's to replace his All pros with. He siad they were horrible, and figured stock was better than the All Pros. I havent heard 1 thing bad about the TC's.

    Well, I am running TC ones now. :) Better for what I'm going to put them through, but then most rigs aren't gonna take the beating some of us put on them.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that. :p

    i'm running the allpro's w/ no issues at all, besides the fact that its a bitch to remove the bolt to take em off...haha. and to the OP, the bearings have the zerq (spelling) fittings for easy greasing.

    I just greased my UCA’s and the bushings now look like they are coming out. Is that normal??

    It seems like the grease is pushing the bushings out. They where fine before I started to pump grease in.

    IIRC, supposed to loosen the UCA bolt before greasing. Could be wrong though.
