    What is the difference between the Billet Style UCA and the Tube Style UCA? Do they both do the same thing on performance wise? Is there any service parts for them like replaceable uniball's for instance? Thanks guys

    Both have the same performance, with the billet one your getting the looks, a bit stronger unit, heim joints instead of bushings, and also the dust cap cover over the uni-ball. It helps keep the uni-ball fresh longer, keeps moisture and debris out of it which can cause the uni-ball to wear faster. We have Icon uniball rebuild kits for them. Come with new uni-balls & snap rings.

    Too many to list now.
    I think you can get more camber out of the billets, at least thats my understanding :notsure:

    I know guys that run them on fj's and tacos with the extended travel coilovers and because of the camber adjustment, they're stuffing 35's with the fender flares on.

    The heim's on the uppers allow for more alignment. Caster/camber
