    I’ve read completely mixed reviews, for both these and the Tuff country UCAs.

    While I’m sure the integrity of the UCA itself is fine, I’ve seen some post pics on Amazon for other vehicle models where they were out of spec. My bigger concern is shitty proprietary sized China ball joints with just as shitty rubber boots though.

    My personal opinion is just get yourself some JBAs which are about the cheapest quality UCA on the market with an easily replaceable ball joint, or even some budget Freedom offroad UCAs. I’m sort of in the same process now. I’m not paying $800 for UCA markup. But I think I’m just going to bite the bullet and skip the low budget stuff.

    Another alternative is the mevotechs on rockauto that are repackaged SPC arms. ~$200 ish each side. Seems hit or miss though if they ship you the new forged style SPCs vs the obsolete old tubular style.

    Jba’s would be my first choice but I feel the price tag is too high.

    Big plans, small budget - ICON UCAs, BP51/Kings, SCS wheels, 285 KO2s, Leer 100XR canopy.
    They look very similar to the Rancho UCAs,

    They look exactly the same! Minus the bushings and brake line mounts.
