    I've got an ICON stage 2 on my truck right now,and would like to not mix and match suspension parts. That said I was looking into getting Light Racing UCA's because of the adjustment options they allow for camber/castor. Anyone know if the ICON Tubular UCAs are adjustable in a similar fashion? Or are they closer to Total Chaos UCAs? I PMd a guy that is supposed to be a vendor for them on here but got no response.

    Thanks. Bummer though. Back to the Light Racing I guess. Anyone running the ICONs?

    No "Bummer" about it. UCA's either get teh alignment right, or dont. TC's get the alignment spot on. Yes, the LR's give more adjustments, but you dont need them. Get the 2* + of Caster, and .2* Camber, and you never have to adjust the ball joint again.

    So with the TCs you adjust the ball joint during install or something which allows for proper alignment? I'm not too familiar with suspensions in general.

    With the TC's, you just install them, and get it aligned. No messing with the uniball. Same with teh Icons.

    So whats the point of adjustables if the uniball ones are just install and align?

    The LR's are less expensive, and "can" be adjusted more precisely if desired.

    by "can be adjusted" do you mean, Sure you can adjust them, but its not really necessary?

    I have the ICON/Donohoe billet UCA on a 4WD 2008.
    The truck holds alignment very well, and we have beaten it pretty hard a number of times in Baja.
    Have no experience with the tubular - the billets do look good, also.
