    TC's are nice and quiet, Camburgs are noisey or will be. Also, there is some discrepancy as to weather or not the Camburgs correct for the lost caster when lifting. AND, TC uses Aurora Uniballs. Which are Made in USA. :)

    chris, is there a way to keep the camburgs from getting noisy? is the noise coming from the ball on the slug rotating around?

    Spray them with a "Dry Lube" like Tri Flow, or any other quality teflon spray.

    I heard that Camburg uses a harder Uniball that was made in China? :confused:

    Meh...If im wrong, I'll take it back. They are still noisey.

    i just looked at wheelers offroad and when you look at either the camburg or TC arms they both have an option below for replacement aurora uniballs. i could be making an ass out myself by assuming they are the exact same uniballs.

    Hmmmm......Interesting.... Camburg used to brag about useing a harder Uniball than TC, and the ones that TC uses from Aurora are only availible in one hardness.........:confused:

    Meh...I still prefer TC..:D

    ok well they're both 96's. one has 190k, 3 in spacer lift and 32in BFG muds. The other is stock with 190k. Both have factory wheels painted black and v6 4x4 manual xtra cab. so pretty much the same truck and they both want $4500. the stock one looks like it has had a lot of expensive parts replaced like the ac pump, brakes and clutch. so ya. i'm stuck.

    The only real reason I put the TC's on my truck was because of a smoking deal on a used set. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have spent over $600 on them.

    thanks for the input guys. I just dont see why a piece of metal with a bend in it cost $650 dollars....seems a little outrageous
    I really want some but I cant justify that kind of money right now

    If you are primarily interested in correcting camber after lifting Light Racing's offering @ $449 is a little less painful on the wallet. Stock type bushings and BJ's so it should be quiet.
    It's cool that Camburg now has a basic UCA that uses the stock Toyota BJ @ $390 (+ stock BJ's)
    When I lift I'm probably going with one of those two.

    After a quick look over at Wheeler's it looks like the high-end Camburg ships with 1.25" Aurora Uni-Balls while the Total Chaos has 1.00" Aurora Uniballs.

    3" Lift, 33" KM3,s, camburg UAA's
    I just installed a set of camburg 1.25" uniball UAA's on my 2010 Tacoma with 3" lift and 33" BFG KM2 Muds and it wont line up.
    I can only get 1.9 - 2.0 degrees on the caster, and cant get 0 degrees camber with the eccentrics on the lower arms maxed out.
    I called camburg and talked about it, and they said, yes this happens and that I needed to send the arms back to be modded by putting heim joints on the other end in place of the bushings, at a cost of $500 !
    Needless to say Im a bit po about it because camburg said the 1.25" UAA's would correct any alignment problems with a 3" lift, and big tires.
    Now I wish I had bought the TC's

    And those 1.25" uniballs give less spring clearance at full droop.....
