    A cheaper and better option would be to just get Maxtrac spindles for 4" of lift and skip the upper control arms since there is no reason for them unless you're planning on running a coilover or something to get more than the 4" lift?

    Or buy that no-name shit and sell the control arms to some other brave soul who wants to test them. You can buy those no-name spindles on Amazon for $400 though.

    Seems like there are 3 different sellers selling the exact same UCAs

    1. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321582323124
    2. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271765559201
    3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/291483821018

    They look nice, but I figure they are probably cheaply made. I've reached out to one of the sellers to see who the manufacturer is, if there is a part number, and what its made of.

    Edit: Some other threads on here about the same arms
    1. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/ebay-upper-control-arms.356793/
    2. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/uniball-upper-control-arms-under-300.350997/
    3. https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/anyone-installed-generic-ebay-uca.352409/

    Edit 2: A review! http://www.overlandnv.com/apps/blog/show/43088174-ebay-upper-control-arms-write-up-review

    Seems like the arms themselves are alright but the bushings and adapters are not great
