    Pretty sure that they are just rebranded, but I'm sure someone with these can offer some more insight.

    EDIT: Disregard this post.

    They are different. They use a standard ball joint as opposed to a Uniball. The Icon UCA's are Bilet aluminum, and the TC arms are tig welded aloy. The LR's are steel. I dont think the LR's are greasable either.

    I think the OP was referring to the coilovers not the UCA's. I'd like to know more about them too.

    Here's the link for what the OP is talking about:
