    Sorry guys. Aaron and Van have been extremely busy building this insane kit for a Chevy duramax and haven't had time to check all of the individual forums they post on. If you'd like a quick response, I'd recomendation calling and leaving a message if they don't pick up. Email also works as well. They should be a lot more free when the kit is done in a couple days.

    Would like to see the new lower arms.... My Camburg UCA's squeak after a good off road session. After I wash the truck and let everything dry I spray some Locktite Krytex (dry film lube) on the part of the ball that I can see and it usually quiets down on the next drive. Would your new lower arms require lube like this? Or what lube do you suggest?

    What your hearing us the Uni-balls.
    If you dont special order some nice FK or Aurora stainless steel bearings then you get the more nosier ones. I called camburg and ordered all new FK stainless steel bearings for my LT kit because I am tired of the squealing after a really hot day or dirt sesh.. A local guy here in vegas said that he has 40k on his and they dont make a peep. It all depends on the kind of bearings that are being used and the quality of them.

    Could be this but if you have stock lcas, I bet its the stock bushings. Everyone I know has this problem.

    Damned squeaky balls! I bought the Camburg UCA with 1.25" uni-balls, can I get better balls to eliminate the squeak? I guess the new cusom lower A arms are next upgrade for my mid travel Tacoma. LETS SEE THE PICTURES....

    Eatabullet, Nice pictures! These lower A-arms look good (scratched up, but they can take it!), and yes FK uniballs is where I need to be. LSK, now I want a set of these lower stock geometry lower a-arms. I am running a 2012 Taco 4x4 with Icon extended travel R/R rear shocks and Icon ext travel coilovers up front, Camburg UCAs.

    But which should be first: 1) gusseted spindles, or 2) Icon air limit stops for the back, or 3) LSK lower A-arms?

    Glad to see you like the lowers! Their kit is awesome too. Btw, if anyone was wondering, my prototype 2wd lift spindles will be done Friday or sat. :)

    How is the 4x4 spindle progressing? Not that I have the money till I close on the new house but gotta have something to look forward to

    They haven't started on them yet but they have the custom milled hub blocks on their shelf. I believe Jen already payed for them so its really just a matter of time till they are done.

    a 4x4 Spindle? Would this be better (stronger) than welding gussets to a like new factory 4x4 spindle?

    yes, there is no comparison, a lot of people and myself have bent, broken, and cracked factory gusseted spindles.
