    There are some things in life that shouldn't be a price point purchase. The seller's feedback tells you all you need to know

    They seem like a new seller so I can't trust the feedback rating. I just can't afford any of the name brand uniballs at the moment and I'm not interested in the Lr/Spc arms.

    I just noticed that they don't make them for first gens. That's disappointing.

    Why not SPC LR UCA if you don't mind me asking, thanks.

    Would not trust 'em, off-brand with no reviews....SPC UCAs can be had for not much more, and are tried and true.

    I'm not sure how true this is, but I've heard that it's easier to knock the Spc's out of alignment and that a uniball will have better articulation. I plan on getting some tc, icon, or camburgs eventually, so I just wanted to run a cheaper option for a while.

    I have never had that problem, and yes, I also want a pair of TC uniball arms. They are awesome.

    Wait for a used set of uniball uca's from a reputable company to come up on here or CL. Other than that you're most likely l going to be replacing the cheap-as-possibly-sourced uniballs before long in those Amazon deals and not really saving that much - especially if you pay someone to do it. How hard to you plan on beating your front end up that you think the SPC's won't hold alignment? That's a sincere question. :cool:

    Keep saving don't buy something that is cheap to put on a 30k+ truck. Waiting to get the ones you want will pay off in the long run

    This. I've learned the hard way more than once to wait and do it how you actually want the first time, more than once.

    As hard as possible! I'll probably just save up a little more and get a quality uniball.

    Very true, but my 98 Tacoma wouldn't even fetch 30k back in 98!

    Still cost you money to buy it. You don't want it to leave you in a ditch with a broken ball joint on a Friday night now do you.
