    Hey guys I was curious what you guys thought. I need new UCAs and money is not the problem its deciding on a uniball setup or a oem ball joint set up. I know the uniball performance wise is best but I live in pa and I'm worried about the winters we have and running a uniball setup unsealed. Any comments?

    As long as you get the stainless ones you should be fine. Just grease them every oil change or as needed.

    What would be best like a spray lithium grease?

    There should be 2 zerks per UCA. I just pump some lithium grease in them until it comes out then wipe it off. The uniballs on the other hand don't need maintenance. Just a couple of dabs of tri-flow if they give you any squeaky noises.

    I would go with balljoints. If you lived down south I'd uniballs would be fine, but where you live you will have to squirt triflow or mtb chain oil on them every few days to keep the squeeking down/rust. (unless you got stainless, then its just squeeking)
