    Before I express my frustrations. I would like to thanks JDKeller for helping me today and showing me how to install a set of UCA. Not that hard as long as you know what you're doing. I'd like to thank Bajamoon for the awesome deal on the TC UCA.

    That cleared and out the way. Here comes my frustration!


    I'm so F'd right now because i got my TC UCA on but I'm missing the bottom Uniball parts that separates the UCA to the Spindle.

    Right now the TC UCA are on but they're hitting the Spindles. I can't get an alignment until I get the parts.

    Let me know if you possibly have them. I'm really stuck @ the moment......

    The upper one is there but you can see the bottom one is not. Causing it to touch the spindle area. I had to keep it on as I had to get home.. .



    Here is the upper portion, I don't have the bottom one near the spindle.


    Anyone know whats it called? I need to call Total Chaos to order the parts and get it shipped. I have to drive my truck. You guys think it would be bad if I drove slow to work and back? Local streets 7 miles?

    ** I'm going to have a drink and go to bed**
    Sigh

    I'm just pissed at the moment and I have my girl yelling @ me. I'm suppose to help her pick up furniture tomorrow morning and I've got the cancel it. I don't want to F up my truck. :mad:.

    Going to mix me a nice Drink and submerge my pain . . kids I don't recommend this as an outlet to your problems but this is my adult choice.

    Looking at this pic, it looks like you are missing the 9/16" grade 8 bolt spacer.

    I don't think it is good to drive with the spindle rubbing the UCA.

    I am sure if you call Total Chaos they will sell you the spacer.
