    I installed my SAW 2.5s on the truck and cranked them up, now I need some UCAs.

    I've done some research, but thought I would open it up to everyone to get some opinions.

    SO which do you prefer? Are Camburg, AllPro and TC really that much better than Light racing??:confused::confused:

    IIRC, the Camburg, TC, & All Pro UCAs are all uniball, these will allow for a little but more travel and a bigger range of adjustment for caster. The LR are Ball Joint which will correct the camber issues but thats about it.

    I was told by one of the gentlemen at wheelersoffroad.com that unless you're bombing through the desert at 70 mph, there is nothing the uniball types have to offer over the LR's. He talked me into buying (future) the cheap ones.

    Nobody has any experience with allpro? :( I was more leaning toward those because of the forum discount we get there.

    Camburg UCAs use a 1.25" uniball as opposed to the 1" in the TC UCAs. If you run hydraulic bumps up front you'll be able to get about an extra inch to inch and a half of uptravel out of your suspension with them.

    Thanks. :)

    I haven't heard a single squeak out of the Camburg UCAs so far but you have to take that with a grain of salt. My truck is extremely noisy so the odds of hearing a chirp from a uniball up front are extremely slim.

    my camburgs are kinda noisy but are a great product and i would def buy them again if i had to. i dont buy TC stuff cause i think it's over priced. when moding your truck with after market stuff, especially stuff thats pulling lots of travel its gonna become a little noisy. my deaver make way more noisy than my UCA's.

    I love them so far. Very comfortable and nice flex. I have had 900 pounds in the bed once and it did good.
