    I'm looking for anyone who has installed the newer Camburg UCAs with the 1.25" uniball.

    Quick questions:

    1. Do you know the length of the arm from mount to uniball cup (older design had about 7" whereas TC had 6.5")? Any change?

    2. If you have taken the vehicle to an alignment shop, was alignment a challenge (to factory settings)?

    3. What made you choose the newer Camburg UCAs over the TC?

    sold Tacoma, driving a Ford Raptor now.
    My order of these should be coming in anyday and I hope to have them installed next week. If you dont get a response I can update you next week.

    I ordered the whole CO setup. UCAs, and deavers/5100s for the back.

    Thanks. I'd be especially interested if you could post a pic like the one attached. My guess is the Camburg UCAs still have this same measurement (7"), but some have suggested that at some point the welding jig at Camburg got misaligned and went from 6.5" to 7" and then back to 6.5" after they caught the error. I have no idea if there is any truth to this, but it would be nice to see a pic of their new UCA with the larger uniball, and recessed hardware with a tape measure up against it like in the pic to compare the old with the new.

    Thanks. How often do you have to apply that teflon lube? And where did you buy the teflon lube?

    I have always wondered why the Camburgs are so noisey. Everyone I know with TC's are nice and quiet.....
