    total Chaos is my choice. 5+ years on teh uniball without needing to be replaced. Never a squeak.

    Do the TCs allow you to fix alignment problems like the LRs?

    Burg uses Aurora Uniballs, swap out for an FK and it will help. Nice thing with Burg's is that they use an 1.25" uniball though, they tend to last a bit longer than the 1"

    Yes

    Correct!

    If anyone needs, i have Icon, TC and Burg in stock. Shoot me PM for TW prices.

    Hell I'm running LR UCAs with my extended travel Icons and am doing just fine. The LRs are a larger BJ and allow for more travel then the stock BJ

    Yes.
    TC has my vote! 3+ years and no issues less the frequent lube requirement.
