    to the best of my knowledge, that price is a few years old. i called them about TC uca's that were on their website for $4xx and they told me they haven't updated their website in a few years. even at $600, they're the cheapest new uniball uca's you're gonna find. camburg came out with a balljoint uca thats in the $400 range.

    Yeah I think I like the uni ball, but i don't know that they are worth that much more. Plus I've heard that fixing a ball joint on the trail is easier than with a uni Ball

    Correct,
    I am getting a complete price list of all BR items the Truck shop carries and will be posting it very soon.

    On another note, my BR UCA's have had alot of offroad miles and I have had "0" issues, no squeeks or any noise, I have Greased the Bushings twice and have never had to do anything with the uniballs.

    I have had these for over two years and I have 0 issues as well. I probably got one of the first ones made. I am very happy with the product still to this day. James and The Truck Shop are legit. I will not go to another shop.

    Hi Tri, its been awhile, I have to agree, James has been doing a lot to my truck and more upcoming, the BR UCA's I use off road weekly and have been one of the most reliable pieces of equipment beside the Tacoma.

    I just installed the Light Racing UCA's and the install was simple. They are fully adjustable as well. The best part was they were only $395 shipped from fatbobsgarage.com

Shok Industries 2/0 big 4 upgrade and sound deadener.
    Fourth even though I was a dick about them when I got them 2 years ago. James was nothing but helpful when I called both times. I think the uniballs squeaked ridiculously for a few months but finally quieted down but I had gotten so used to the noise I didn't even notice. Just grease the bushings with a squirt or two every time I do the u joints and no problems.

    Won't regret it!

    The Truck Shop and Built Right Fab have done every single thing to my truck since I took it off the lot brand new.
