    ive been talking to a member on here (linked2002) and he has pretty damn good fabricating skills and i was asking him if he would build some uca's that are like the old fabtech arms but are better material and designed better with a few gussets where the ball joint goes. they will either have tc bushings and tc chromoly uca cross shafts or heimed to fit on the stock cross shafts our goal is 5 sets or more so its worth his time to build them. we will figure out the cost once we have the customers so pm me if your interested and i will keep you guys posted! :D

    ** please pm me if interested so we dont blow up his inbox as he would be doing us a favor. thanks guys

    get the lower bj brackets setup also so that way you can have a cheap stout front end! also the old fabtech arms were still kind of short. down travel was limited by the uca hitting the coil lol.

    I have a set of custom uniball arms I was running before my LT kit. They worked great (I mangled them when i broke my bj brackets doing 75 though). For those not wanting to go LT its a good option, just carry extra BJ brackets cause you will be more prone to breaking these I found out.

    yall are talkin uniball uppers right? im sorry but it is rather pointless and a waste of time for me to build sets of custom uppers with ball joints in them.

    Yeah dude I never even used them, Sold to Joel if I remember right haha. Now I have a TC kit (trying to upgrade even), Fully built rear, and am prepping to cage. Amazing how fast plans change when you break shit.
