    I was thinking about ordering these to help fix my alignment (caster) problems and to improve my overall ride. Anybody running these and having any issues?? Do you recommend?

    do a search brotha. lots of information on this subject that will help you understand UCAs and the shortcomings of each brand.

    Camburg Uniball are badass for sure and will help fix alignment. I got the cheaper version of those (Camburg ball joint UCA)that reuses your stock ball joint, they fixed my alignment issues. Also to consider/research: Light racing, Total Chaos, Icon, and AllPro.

    I'm 90% sure all of those aftermarket UCAs aide in getting proper alignment after lifting.

    the only thing that sucks about uni-balls UCA's is you gotta keep them clean to prevent early wear and tear and they can be noisy. they are a race truck style part and that's just bound to happen. if you keep them clean and lubed up with some dry teflon spray you'll be fine. :thumbsup:

    I like mine but could never get the exact alignment I wanted and later found out others had the same problem. They will require a lot more maintenance then the normal ball joint with a boot around them. I had the squeaking problem and thought for the longest time it was because i couldn't get them clean enough but found out my coils on 2.5 SAW coilovers were rubbing on the sway bar and now that I have fixed that, no more squeaking!
