    Looking to possibly replacing my control arms when I do my lift. Im still short on cash for coil overs so Im pretty much straped for control arms. I found these for about half of the Total Caos arms and was wondering if anyone had experience with them.

    Is the uni ball joint that much better than the joint and bushing style that I need to spend $700+ on some control arms?

    A lot of people on here actually run those. I've heard good things about them and I plan on getting a set at some point. Try searching, there's a lot of discussion of them.

    I have them and love the construction. I would not buy an exposed ball joint like Total Chaos, but that's me.

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    You will probably find people recommend what they run. I haven't put my LR UCAs on yet, but the uniball design definitely factored into my decision. That and the adjustibility. I bought mine from Fat Bob's Garage. They'll give you a discount off the price on the website if you call them up. Chris from SPC tech support is really helpful too. Already talked to him a couple of times about the initial setup to use.
